This and That

Hi dear friends,
tonight we have been to the building site and here you can see new pictures of the house in progress. It is growing fast. Last week we spent a day looking for tiles, kitchen and bathroom furniture.

In between I found a little time to sew the blocks for my Civil War quilt. Here are the last four blocks.

I also sewed the last Dear Jane border and I am hand quilting it, slowly, slowly.

A few weeks ago we had new babies in our backyard. six little geese. Here they are with mom, dad and older brother or sister.

Aren't they cute? Mom and dad are walking around like bodyguards and nobody can approach them!
And last but not least a funny snap from a nice guest. Hugo the aries with his babies.

Have fun and a good night. Hugs. Pink

New blocks

Hi friends,

here my new Civil War block of the week. Already block 24!

I love them all!! Little small, cute gems!
Here the actual setting, I moved some blocks around and  for now I like it. Later with more blocks I probably will move some more.

Here the block I received from Marie, my May partner for the Austrialia block swaps.

and this is my block for Marie.

Now I have 6 blocks, I think I'll wait till I have 9 and start to plan a setting for them.
Hugs. Pink
