I have lost

a week.. Where has it gone!!!! I don’t even have a Hexie to post as I have only traced some stepping stone blocks to stitch.



The builder is also away on another job .Sew nothing to report on the houses. Sad smile


Was very happy the mailman had left some lovely parcels for me this week.



Beautiful bag, scarf and writing paper from Raelene for the OASS



My pretty 12” Mini Swap from Helen



and my Christmassy Rug Mug and goodies from Ida.

Thank you ladies, love them all.

  1. Wow, the postman has been busy at your house - lovely gifts, Maria!! It also looks like you have been busy sewing all sorts - they all look great but I do especially love the bom block - love those 'double stars'.

  2. looks like you have been busy enough! And great treats from the postman too! lucky you!

  3. Lots of lovely goodies came your way Maria. And you got a fair few blocks done. Your quilt looks lovely put together. Can't wait to see what those sneak peeks are hiding!

  4. looks like you have been as busy as your postman!
    so many pretty blocks and gorgeous goodies arrived at your place.

  5. For someone who lost a week... you did very well with your sewing time! Wonder what you are hiding? :)

  6. You didn't have time for hexies and houses with all that other sewing!

  7. Wow - so much lovely stuff happening in your sewing room.

  8. Looks like your week was sucked out of you by that cave you have!

    Gorgeous new bag for all your outings.

    Cute puppy blocks for the Aussie Heroes.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  9. It looks like you have had a great week of sewing and mail. Your blocks look wonderful and your mail looks like fun packages to open.

  10. Well I guess if you hadn't been so busy opening packages, you would have had time to make hexies! hehe! You always get so much done, that I think it's okay to miss a hexie week.

  11. Ha, Maria the neighbours will wonder at the Postie stopping at The Block so much, lol. Well you swap partners have excelled themselves... such a gorgeous bag from Raelene, and that Mini is just so pretty... Enjoy it all!

  12. You mailman has been busy in both directions!! Wonderful parcels you received. It looks as though you have been working over time!

  13. Wow, Maria! You've certainly been busy! Isn't it wonderful to get little parcels in the mail? All your things are just lovely.

  14. I am especially loving that purple scarf.....

  15. All I can say is do you ever sleep Mum!!!

    Nice work and here is me struggling to get in the craft room, damn this work business!

    Will go now you have inspired me Love DD2

  16. At first I thought you were going to say you'd done no sewing this week! Wow, I was wrong, of course you've done plenty. I can hear the whirr of that Bernina all the way across the river at my place. Keep up the good job.

  17. Love all your blocks but have to say that the Aussie hero ones are of course my Favourites!

  18. Wow, Marie that's a lot of show and tell! The stepping stones looks like so much fun. Can't wait to see your process.

  19. I somehow missed this post , been a little slack with the computer lately .Lots of lovely projects ,wonderful show and tell , thanks for sharing!!
