Block and Fabric

(This header sounds like I’m in the building industry and should really read Block and Tackle!! I suppose we do in a way “build” quilts, so it’s not too far wrong!).

I do love it when I open my e-mail each morning and there are lots, and lots of lovely, quilty e-mails from you, dear peeps, sending comments on my posts, and new posts from the blogs I subscribe to: it’s a very happy way to start the day, and makes for easy digestion of my brekky!!

One such e-mail yesterday was from Barbara Brackman, always an interesting read, and a second from her for the Dixie Diary Block of the Month. So a quick visit to the sewing room and a short stint at the sewing machine, and Shouting Yankee Doodle was done!…

Being the beginning of the month, it’s also time for the next Fabric Club bi-monthly mail out, but seeing as I was at the shop on Saturday when the girls had just finished getting them ready (did you hear the “yippees”?!), I’ve picked mine up….

As always, Karen had a choice of 4 packs, and luckily for me, there was another there that defied my resistance….(not surprised, are you!)

Happy stitching

    Love the fabrics! I shall have to resist temptation when I go to Anne’s tomorrow, to deliver the two children’s quilts!!

  5. Beautiful fabrics. I love popping over to see what’s going on in your part of the world. Brilliant sunshine spring like day her in the northeast of England.
