While at the beach and after getting home, I was faithfully stitching on a couple of small projects -
Always fun to work on these Val Laird blocks and now I am all set for the September block to come out. (See side bar for a link to the free block of the month.
I made five sets of the scissors case and pin cushion to donate to my guild to sell in the boutique at our quilt show next month, These were fun to make and now I want to make one for myself - but the whole set! Want to see the entire set - check out: http://home.exetel.com.au/val_laird/index_files/Page605.htm
And now a word from me, the proud mama of Ellen. She is running a marathon in January to help raise funds for blood cancer research. She has a website set up if you would like to read her story of why she is doing this. http://pages.teamintraining.org/nc/wdw11/ejustice .
This is Ellen in the pink, with Cindy. Cindy is my niece and the lovely daughter of my brother Michael who Ellen writes about.
