I am surely one of the last to post about this years swap but have good reasons. Some of you know what my family is going through at the moment and just now I don't feel ready to talk about it properly.  Thanks for your understanding and feel free to send any prayers this way :-)

I loved my SSCS gift and thanked my partner privately although this post is very late. This is what arrived at my home made by Cheryl - sorry can't get the links working - my brain is tired...

It is far lovelier in real life and such a lot of work - beautiful embroidery !! I will look after this and it will grace my bed every Christmas for years to come... Thankyou so much Cheryl...

And heres what I sent to Jenny.

And because in spite of all that is going on at the moment I really, really needed to sew and this afternoon I cleared a bit of time and had a few blissful hours to myself. I have decided to join the soscrappy Saturday challenge. This months colour is pink and I have lots of pink scraps and had picked my block so got my first one done.  Here it is

Heres is the link . . Think  I've got this one to work..

I also put together 1 block for Bonnie Hunters mystery quilt - I am way behind on this but really want to get it done within the next couple of months.  However it might not bode well as this block has already got to be unpicked - yikes.

Take care xx
