Good News | Bad News

Good News is that I got some extra unexpected sewing time and worked on my belated block swaps .........

Bad News is that we were supposed to be away on holiday this week, but one of our friends that we were going away with has ended up in hospital :(  Major Bummer!

ofcourse, the usual preparation for sewing
A glass of Coke-a-Cola, and a Balfours Custard Tart - I have been eating these
custard tarts for as long as I can remember and always think of my Mum when I have one ;-)


block for xmas swap
Friendship Star for Sal
Sal requested any block and confessed to being partial to the odd snowman or two ;-)  I found this cute fabric in my stash - I think I got it at one of the craft fairs ;-)  the red background was a recent purchase from a Facebook Aussie destashing page ;-)

block for qbsa
Sawtooth Star
for Jo who requested any star block in country colours - burgundy, browns, greens - I hope it is OK - this photo is a bit bright :) the red is more of a burgundy red

FNSI - Show and tell

I didn't get as much done for my FNSI as I wanted - I got sidetracked in the afternoon making up some cards for a prize for a Charity Quiz Night for Pregnancy Loss Australia - in memory of my Great Nephew Shaun. (see my post HERE if you are interested)

Of course, FNSI starts with suitable preparation


I worked on Lesson 12, for A4A QAL - it took me a long time for pick my colour combinations and cut up all those 2.5" squares ;-)

My PIF is done ............... is yours?

This post also serves as a gentle reminder to all those who agreed to participate in the PIF during 2012 to complete your promise to Pay It Forward.

Some of you may remember my PIF post HERE

Well, my PIF is finally in the mail.  Yes, I know, I am so very late, but I didn't want to let Sherry down.  I made a promise, and I needed to keep it.

I would normally wait until my package arrives before posting photos, but not this time.  Sherry has been most patient, and I want to give her something to look forward to - that is if she still reads my blog :)

One of these hot pads has been sent - which one? ;-)

a little something extra for being so patient :) 


Unfortunately, I have not been able to contact the third person to register for my PIF - so I guess my PIF 2012 has been completed :-).
