Cricket on TV = more sewing ;-)

The Cricket was on the TV, so I was able to spend time in my sewing room sewing ;-)

Block Lotto for January is Coin stacks - here are some I made earlier ;-)

I have realised I don't have many 'bright' fabrics, but I do have some jewel fabric left over from last month's trees and will do a couple more using those ;-)

Speaking of trees, my trees will be in the mail to the winners today or tomorrow.

I also made up the blocks for my January  Block Swap Adventure partner - Melissa who asked for a Centennial Tree Block with scrappy leaves - I was a bit overwhelmed when I first saw the instructions - it was rated with 3 PINS difficulty level !!!  ;-), here is a snippet
It was a very challenging block to make - lots of cutting and squaring up - but I am really pleased with how it eventually turned out.  I hope Melissa likes it.  I am intending to get it in the mail today or tomorrow.

Next I made up some blocks for Christmas Block Swap January partners BrigitteLindaM.

Brigitte asked for any star block in traditional Christmas colours.  Here is a snippet.
Linda asked for a Star Block in Traditional colours with a cream/beige background.  Here is a snippet.

Linda and Brigitte, your blocks will be in the mail today or tomorrow.

That's it for me - back to the real world today with grocery shopping and washing and ironing ;-)


  1. Love your coin stacks... do you follow a pattern?

  2. Cathy - the block has arrived and I'm in awe! I just can't say enough how beautiful it is! Really amazing! Thank you so much!! Yours is on its way today!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, it is most appreciated!
