Blogging Friends

This year I joined the Stitch-A-Long and as I live in a small crayfishing/tourist town, in West Aussie, which doesn't have a fabric store, my lovely friend Fiona who lives on the other side of Australia in Queensland helped me purchase some beautiful fabrics from Quilter's Angel via the internet...

Backing for blocks and borders.

with my fabrics...

Now I have been able to make my first block....

Also in a previous post I showed you my "Candle Mat" which I was having trouble finding the right buttons to complete it...
Well this week another lovely blogging friend JO sent me these buttons 

                                             and now my "Candle Mat" looks great..

Huge thank you to both ladies for your help..

Must away and get ready for Patch's Embroidery Workshop.. hope you are all doing something fun this weekend...

Hugz  Maria :)
