Jo sent me such a lovely parcel wrapped in a fat quarter of Helen's fabric. The design Jo chose is "Pretty in Pink" and is beautifully stitched using more of Helen's fabrics.

This was a fun design to put together fitting it all around a beetroot can - I didn't have a "two fruits" can.
I had a lot of 2-1/2" squares left over from the B&C Patchwork Swoon quilt and was looking for a block design to use them in. One day last week I had a brainwave and the scrappy churndash block is the result.
All my sewing time since has been taken up making these blocks.
I have loads of blocks in various stages of progress but have now run out of background fabric - that will be delivered next Tuesday, so back to Starlight and Hopscotch.
Had the best day on Saturday - minded ChaCha while Elizabeth and Matt were out for the day and we visited Michael and Gulliver. The littlies were so entertaining playing with each other. I also had a bonus time minding Gulliver later in the day which Michael picked up Peta from work.
Mum and I, along with some of our friends, are going to a charity showing of "Eddie the Eagle" tomorrow night - don't know much about the movie but I do remember Eddie the Eagle at the Olympics. Hugh Jackman is in the movie so that's a plus :)
