QBSA and U3A

My December partner is Lori, from USA. Lori gave me 2 options for her block, but as I had never made either before, I decided to make both. They are simple but beautiful blocks and I hope Lori will be pleased.

I mailed these blocks at the very beginning of the month, but since my last parcel to America took 3 weeks to arrive, I'm sure these are still travelling.

I've also signed up for the Cushion Swap with Sue from QBSA. Since the last swap I've gathered many ideas for cushion covers and I'm really looking forward to putting these ideas together.

U3A - this is such a wonderful organisation - University of the 3rd Age - where like minded people get together to learn and to share their skills. I belong to the Tai Chi and the Folk Dancing groups, but in our district there are also classes in various forms of art [painting, sculpture, jewellery, etc], music of many styles - instruments, choir - drama, play reading, languages, gardening, touring, films, book club, etc, etc, etc.
A person could be busy every day of the week.
Yesterday was the end of year concert and afternoon tea. It was the best way to spend an afternoon, and the most wonderful, talented and entertaining concert!!
