block from Lynette
This the block that Lynette sent me, I actually had to go check the original email to Alex to remind myself what I had asked for, Stars or Pinwheels in Autumn tones. I love that it has both elements and the red and green are the colours of the trees around my place at the moment.

|Friends Star for Sharon|
|Friendship star from Sharon|
I finished Sharon's block a Friends star minus the half square triangles (I was using up scraps and had enough for the inside but didn't have enough for the extra in the corners) yesterday, this is for the Christmas quilting block swaps Australia. It will be posted tomorrow and headed to Canada, my block from Sharon arrived Friday in the mail but as everyone knows blogger was misbehaving so while you could read blogs you couldn't post or leave comments.

Block from Staci
Block for Staci
My April block from Staci arrived on Monday - I let Staci know but it was cold and dark when I got my mail out of th box on Monday afternoon. Tuesday was spent out all day, so here it is Wednesday morning and I finally have time to sit down a post a picture, the block is wonderful and goes really nicely with my other blocks. I had only ever posted a peek of the block I did her so thought that I would show you both April blocks.

|Huge gum in the back of Cobbity Public School|
This huge gum is at the back of Cobbity Public school where markets are held the first Saturday of the month. We were there at 8am yesterday as I wanted to purchase some cotton perle from a guy who sells it cheap, he sells all things crafty. If you are in Sydney and have never been to Cobbity Markets you are missing one of the best markets on offer, I know stall holder travel from up the Mountains and the Northern beaches to be part of them. We had breakfast of Gosleme - spinach, feta and mince cooked as you waited for it, organic coffee and hot chocolate.
|People interested in Sports Chaplaincy|
We headed to Lake Macquarie, where Steve ran an afternoon information session for people interested in Sports chaplaincy. Dinner at the service centre on the F3 at Wyong and home by 9.30pm.
Happy Mothers Day to all, I had phone calls from Melbourne and Mildura, lovely Pandora charms, Cat Empire gift box (bought at Borders for $27 instead of $99 as they are closing down and selling everything off) and wonderful photos of the girls taken by Kate and Graeme. Below is my photos of Violet with Granddad and daddy.

|Block swap adventure|
Wendy's block sneak peak
|Bee in Oz fabric from Kyishia|
It has been a cold couple of days here in Sydney (Australia), time to snuggle down under a quilt or two. I have spent the morning catching up on some sewing, here is a sneak peak for Wendy, won't get posted until tomorrow (Wednesday), hope you like it Wendy.
Isn't the fabric lovely, it arrived today in the mail from Kyishia for her Bee in Oz block for the month of May. It only had to travel across Sydney so arrived the day after she posted it. We are making a Jewelled square block or blocks as Kyishia has given us options on the sizes she wants made. You can see some inspiration here, aren't they wonderful.
Now to go do some more sewing
