March Block Swap Blocks -

It is very early in the month and my blocks are already in the mail. Just as well since my sewing machine is in need of a service.

This red and crean Anvil block is for Encara in Spain,

This scrappy Paper Pinwheel block is for Beverley in Queensland. I made a mug mat from each set of fabrics to go with the blocks.

Since IFQ closed I have also joined a Postcard Swap group - google Bundy Postcard Swap for information. Each month a different theme is interpreted on a 4" x 6" postcard, eg


love - laces, embroidery, old fabrics

I really love making and receiving these postcards.

During December and January I spent a lot of time training four wonderfully keen croquet players who were preparing for their Referees Exam. They passed with flying colours, as did thirteen others who were working with other Examining Referees.

My dear, beautiful mother turned 90 in January. Her children and their husbands, their children and their partners and children all gathered at Newcastle for a birthday lunch. Everyone travelled considerable distances and took the opportunity to gather with each other, so stayed at least 2 nights. This extended the birthday celebrations for a number of days and Mum had loads of contact with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.

As the families all returned home 14 called in for lunch to break their journey. Our daughter and son-in-law with the youngest children stayed overnight to give the littlies time out of the car. Our eldest grand daughter, Inanna, now 12 stayed on for 6 days. What a special week - details tomorrow.
