I also have about 100 comments to respond to from the last couple of days, so please forgive my tardiness, I will reply, soon!
And so back to yesterday. Before I got the dreaded call from school to go and collect the poorly child, she's fine now, I managed to obliterate my To Do List, for which I am rather thankful.
I made three Stitch Tease siggy blocks, one I forgot to mail previously, one to accompany Helen's block on it's way to Dianne's and one for the final instalment.
I printed my labels for the Sizzix quilts; I simply called then Geese! and Dashing! in the end.
I popped a favour in an envelope for a tapestry-loving friend.
Next on the list were a couple of blocks for the lovely Bee Blessed ladies. Honestly, so simple, it would have been way too rude not to...

And last on my list was a Schoenrock Cross block to be used on my Pretty Little Pouch...
As soon as I saw Leila's I knew I wanted to make one too. I printed out the template from Quilter's Cache and reduced the size so that it came out as a 9" block. The upper size limit on the PLPS is 12", so I am aiming, after sashing in natural Essex Linen, for an 11" square pouch, OK not so little, but big enough for a nice sewing project, an embroidery hoop maybe, or a tonne of hexies, I don't have to decide that bit!
I always have that 5 minute brain freeze after I have cut my fabric, (I make a freezer paper template for each piece and cut just over a 1/4" seam allowance) and then after flipping them over, I cannot, for the life of me, work out how they are meant to go, but it all worked out in the end. Am I the only one?
So that was the rest of my day off.
Earlier this evening I played around with the rest of the fabrics needed for the PLPS extra makes and relieved Justine of a couple of Architextures charm packs.
I am almost out of battery, so I am going to have to hit 'publish' and switch off. See you tomorrow xxx
