"Two Fruits"

The theme for our on-line group's first swap of the year was to make something using a Helen Stubbings pattern (Hugs 'n' Kisses).

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.


Notice the card from Chookyblue
My partner to send to was Jenny.  I made "Two Fruits" for Jenny - I did all the stitching on the plane to Singapore and stitched the clamshells on the flight home.


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 :)
