Surfer Chick... and Summer Babe...

Well, I got started today - at least I started outlining the Surfer Chick block.  It is my test piece before I start doing the Four Seasons Blocks.  I think I am happy with the results.  I wish I was talented enough to be able to add more details, particularly with the water's edge.

I have also sewn my "spare" Summer  panel.  By spare I mean that  I had to re-do the summer panel because I had used the wrong green fabric in the background.  I didn't mind re-doing it too much coz I will probably combine the summer block and the surfer chick block in a quilt for someone. 

 I think I will mull it over again till next week.  I am not going to have much time to sew again till Sunday at least anyway because of family commitments.

My husband just came in and brought me the mail- - look what I got!!!!!

These goodies came from Kerrie (check out her blog) and see the gorgeous table topper she made for Valentines day!  I am absolutely delighted with what she sent me - a mug rug using Day and Night Squares by Eleanor Burns, another one using half square triangles from Moda "Bliss", a gorgeous notepad and magnet and, last but not least, my favourite kind of healthy chocolate - a chocolate bar of Moda "Bliss" for me to play with.  I am a lucky girl!!!

I had better scoot - time to go and collect Fly Boy from the bus and drive him to Bible Study!  Better not be late as it looks like there is rain coming. 

Till next time...happy stitching!
