Today ....

I had best get this post done as the day is rapidly running out ... 

I actually did some sewing today .... I managed to get a block finished for this months swap partner .... Sharyn ... she asked for a  house block in .. any bright colour under the sun ... so this is what is going out in the mail on Monday for her ... 


I put a bit of lace on the windows to dress them up a bit .. I do hope she likes what I have done with her house .... it should arrive home on Tuesday ... 

I will also post a photo of the quilt I made for our grandson Brad for his 18th birthday .... 
his is the first of many I have yet to do ...

opps!!! I forgot to mention .... I got the pattern for this here ... 



Tomorrow is Marcos' birthday ... 
I am guessing that we will spend a very quiet day at home ... because he says he will be old  ... haha ..

and now I am going to finish for the day ... 
close down the computer and get some sleep ... 

oh after I do a couple of emails that I should have done earlier in the day ...

    1. thanks T ... i love paper piecing ... and the colours of the quilt were picked by the lad ... it is rather bright ... but what he wanted ... getting 'manly' prints is rather a hard thing to do i am finding ....
