Nice to see Anthea is well enough to organise us for CTTY again this month. Thanks my friend.

Some time ago "Sweet Peg" made these. I thought they were cute sew bought the pattern.

Now I have two to pop in the Gift Box.

I’m a real sucker for SAL's and BOM’s. Remember I joined Terry for “Goodnight Irene”. Well Terry is running another SAL called “"Charming Stars"

and I found this over at Wendy's.

Making these is a great way of using up the stash and make lovely community quilts.

Must away and do some housework because I am off to a four day retreat tomorrow……Woo Hoo !!!!!!!!
