Work in progress

Hi friends,

Here I will show some of my slow work progress. First my Dear Jane. I added the buttom border to the sections 7-8-9. Next step is putting all this together, ending up with the top, without the side border, so I will have the exact measurement for them.

Then I made block 13 for my Civil War BOW. It is a cute little basket, I really loved sewing this nice block.

And here a picture of the last tree blocks for the Civil War BOW...

I already have my new April swap partner for the quilting block swap Australia and next week I will work on her block.

Hi friends,

today I was a very lucky girl. The postman brought Jane's parcel from Australia. She was my swap partner for March. Her block is fantastic and perfect with the two I already have. She also sent me a mouse pad.

And this is my block to Jane.

Civil War BOW and flowers

Hi dear friends,

Sunday afternoon, windy, sunny, rainy weather. After washing a mountain of dishes left from our Saturday dinner with friends, I decided to start the 12th block for the Civil War BOW. Here it is:

Block 12 - Louisiana

And here are some pictures of my garden:

Yesterday it was father day here and Valentino made a beautiful picture frame with card for his daddy.

Last, but not least... little Rex wants to say hello...

Have a nice Sunday. Hugs. Pink

Hi friends,

Today I managed to finish my block for the Civil War BOW.

Block 11 - London Square

And while Rex was resting....

I made my first two blocks for the 6" Block Swap Australia. My very nice partner is Medora from Canada. I enjoyed to know her and to sew this two blocks for her. I hope she likes them.

Friendship Star and Ohio Star

And now, after this productive day I have to think about dinner.... probably Hamburgers, Valentino will be a happy boy!!

Hi friends,

My DJ is almost taking his shape and looking as I would finish it some day not to far away. Now I have sections 1 to 6 together with the top border. This part is not very fun.

Hi friends,
Our puppies Bianca and Brownie have a new home. With our last one Rex I had to fight with myself. Can I keep him or not?, was the big question. We already have 2 dogs, 5 cats and manymore....
But... I couldn't resist, he is to cute and sweet. So the family agreed :)
Here are new pictures. I will post more when I have him resting.

He looks like a little bear. Hugs. Pink
