Catching up and FNSI

Finally I am able to sit down and write a post..  Have spend a few days in bed with a dreaded cold but better now.

But I did manage to make a little gift for a Special Birthday








A zipper pouch..








and we enjoyed morning coffee here even though it was a rainy day...









to celebrate with the birthday girl..









I was also pleased to have made and sent some Aussie Hero Blocks before being sick..





While in Perth DD and I went to the Craft Show and here are the few purchases I made..


and I must also show you the fabulous book I ordered from The Quilters Angel that arrived in the mail










" Make it Blue"

By Natalie Bird...















 




Lots of gorgeous projects that would look great in any colour but I do like the blue....













I am looking forward to our FNSI  with Wendy and friends...   Sew don't forget to pop over HERE  to join in the fun...



Happy Stitching
