FRIDAY PHOTOS

Another week over and this one was busy! I've been making blocks for a couple of the swaps I'm in.

Mary asked for Scrappy pink  x & +  blocks,



Nicke wants Maple Leaf blocks in true fall colours with text prints as backgrounds,


I nearly have enough of these blocks for another Fractured Nine Patch,


My youngest turned 19 this week so we had a bit of a family dinner for her. There were two brothers missing but there were still 14 of us around the table.
Her bouquet.


..and now for the really big news, our oldest son asked his sweet girl to marry him and she said YES.
The wedding is this October. If I thought I was busy before........
