I had a lovely surprise when this patchwork block popped through the letterbox from Diane, the Cheshire Quilter, for our monthly swap. I love it and look forward to making this one in return. Never tried it before and must admit it looks a bit tricky and I'm a bit daunted by it.
I chose to make this Snail Trail block this month for my swap.
It has been a real challenge to me to try out new blocks but I do hope that, one day, I end up as competent as Diane. Her blocks are so perfect in detail.
I was browsing old photos and sorting them into files when I spotted this one that I took at a parade in Liverpool City Centre. Co-incidentally it matches the colour palette of the basket block!
I must tell you, incase you don't look closely, that most of the "NUNS" were MEN in drag.
I thought I'd join in with Annie's Friday Smile with this close up of this chap having a quick smoke after the parade.
Lots more smiles to be had over at Annie's blog so join in or pop over for a chuckle.
Hope you have a good weekend..... the sun is shining and the flowers are pushing up so SMILE!
It's painless, it costs nothing and it makes you feel good!
