A Splendid morning ..... a swap and out on my own.....

I had a "Splendid" morning today even though the weather was a little overcast and rainy.....
I caught up on these 2 blocks......
Block 61



Block 62



Once again I added a few dollars to my "mistake tin" ..... 

I'm still doing silly things so the money is adding up..... lol

Block 60

I made this one earlier....


My quilt will be very scrappy as you can tell from all my blocks, I'm only using fabric from my stash so I guess you could call it a memory quilt as well.

All my blocks so far.....


There are a couple there that I'm not happy with my fabric choice so I will see at the end of this journey if I take them out.

I enjoyed another great swap from our "No Fuss Swappers" blog, this one was

"Road Trip"

These are the gifts I received from Julie.....


Lovely ..... thanks so much Julie.... they are great.



My parcel was sent to Cheryl.....


Cheryl's favourite colour is red so that made it easy to put together.
So glad that Cheryl liked her gifts.


I enjoyed this morning tea when I was out and about all by myself......
seemed really odd without the Tuesday girls there.....

No craft shopping though just clothes and undies for a trip I'm going on very very soon.....
more on that later....


Well that's it for me today so as usual.....
