A Birthday... Snail Mail... Swap Blocks... Plus an Update...
Phew... a few things to show you...
firstly today is my Hubbies birthday ''Happy Birthday Honey Bunny"
and he got breakfast cooked for him 
also lunch...
which was
Pork Fillet with Brandy Cream Sauce and a Garden Salad
it was yummo especially with the lemon squeeze over the top...
then we had
Flourless Chocolate Dessert Cake with softly whipped cream and a Berry Coulis..
once again very yyyyyuuuuummmmmoooo
and al this was washed down with a glass of white wine...
Hubby has now gone off to a meeting and maybe a few beers with some friends...

I had another bounty of mail yesterday... we only get mail once a week...
in this was...
not just one
 but two swap blocks
from Alicia in the USA... she is my partner for July here
I had changed from my blue and red star block to the spiderweb... just because I am into that block at the moment hehehe... and Alicia made two for me as she was concern that the spider web was a smaller block... isn't she just a sweet heart... thank you partner
I also received three more ''birthday fat quarters
and these ''block lotto's''
this months theme was ''a day at the beach'' 
I won woooohoooo
I have 12 blocks in this picture plus the six I made and I still have 3 more parcels to come...
I have been busy sewing spider webs...
there is about 24 blocks in this pile
so I decided to have a little look at how they showcase on my bed
and I worked out that I may need 56 blocks...
which isn't to bad... I would like the blocks to hang down the side a little and then I will add a couple of borders...... BUT............. I will need to find THAT JUST RIGHT fabric.... hahahaha
