I was so afraid my name tag would arrive after I had left for England but I need not have feared. It arrived today. So this Cinderella will be kicking her heels up at the FQ Retreat in just over 3 weeks time! A huge thank you to Elisabeth (lemon s
hark on flickr) who made my name tag. I`m sure she must have been hoping for a Kat or a Mel but instead got an 8 letter name of someone living in N.Africa. I love the embroidery and the fussy cut bus, flag and taxi! I love Britain and I really love London.
She also popped in a very cute pouch and a couple of model airplanes for Zaki. What she doesn`t know is that every time we`re waiting in a bank queue, Zaki hands me the leaflets they have lying around so that I can make an paper plane for him. Thank you Elisabeth - I shall wear my name tag with pride!
There was more happy mail in the shape of bee blocks being made by the Care Circle of do.Good Stitches for the Siblings Together quilt. These beauties came all the way from Kylie (Three Honeybees on flickr) in Australia...
...and these lovelies from Karen at Listen to the Birds Sing in N.Ireland...
...who also sent me this adorable pouch made from the HST scraps of the corner units of the x and + blocks. What a fab reminder I shall have of the quilt we`re making for Siblings Together! Thank you Kylie and Karen!
Here`s the obligatory group photo. I`m still to receive from 5 members of the Care Circle, so we should have enough for a decent sized quilt!
It`s still silly hot here and so hubby suggested this morning that we head to the coast for the weekend, so with all the talk of London buses and holidays (well teensy mini ones), I shall leave you with this.
Take it away Cliff!
It`s Friday tomorrow. Have a great weekend!
