Back Soon


What have I been doing?  Not much,  but I seem to busy all the time.
Piecing is not my forte at all but I did this Jewel Box Block for a secret project.  The recipient doesn’t have a blog or read blogs so I am pretty safe to show it here.  She is 70 years old in April.

The background is a tone on tone black and we were to use jewel colours in batik or similar.  It was a fun block to make and should look stunning when all the blocks are together.
This past Monday I celebrated another birthday.  Wish they would stop coming around so darned quickly.  Anyway, we can’t stop them, so we may as well enjoy them.  I had a lovely day with my friends doing coffee and then lunch with Shirley, followed by some retail therapy.

We went to coffee on Valentine’s Day so all the coffees were presented with the heart motif.  Too cute.

Tomorrow we are off on another adventure in the company of my sister and her husband.  We are going in our camper and my sister and hubby are tenting it.  They haven’t camped since about 1970 when they were just teenagers.LOL  this is going to be really funny.  My sister is a 5 star girl normally.   (She is looking a bit worried here  LOL)
It should be loads of fun.  Back in about 4 weeks.  Ciao.
