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.
..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........
Mary's blocks are so cute--on my weekend list of things to do! Oh, and Deborah's too--I can't believe I haven't done hers yet!!!
Yes I think you will be quite busy in the near future!
Congratulations! Soon you will be gaining a new daughter. And yes, you will be quite busy for awhile! Good luck!
The blocks all look great Carla, and congrats on the engagement in your family. Exciting!
Life is NEVER a dull moment, is it? So happy for you to be gaining a new daughter. I know you'll keep up with everything you decide you need and want to do. Great job on the swap blocks. The ones you made for Mary are so pretty!
