Recently Jane had a yard sale (in the teaming rain) but before hand metioned it on the forum. This is what I got for just over $50 including postage..I'm pretty happy....
Swanky just got cut to make my version of a stacked coin quilt. Birdie I am going to use in the That Girl quilt along. The reds are for a quilt I want to make my Red and white mad Brother. I only need about 9 more red fat q's and 14 white/cream fq's
My little great nephew TY was born last night at 10.36 weighing around 5 pound and 45cm long. He is 6 weeks early......we are all a tad excited....My brother-in-law rang about 9am this morning to tell us the news but due to the wonderful world of facebook we knew already and his bubble got a little deflated!!!!
I only have one block of Ty's quilt finished but it's ok I still have 6 weeks till he is due!!!!!
Hope to get to see him today so a pic will come soon
Till next time
