Weekend Wonders

Hello there! Hope you all had a great weekend!
I had a really wonderful Saturday meeting up with the lovely Sarah (http://sewmeblog.blogspot.com/), Judith (http://judith-ragstobags.blogspot.com/) and the other ladies from the Bee Blessed group. I was so excited to meet Sarah & Judith who have been so kind and encouraging to me. We had lots of laughs, cups of tea & we even managed to make a few blocks! I forgot to bring my camera, but here's a shot Judith's lovely daughter took of the three of us (still nattering away after every one else has gone!!!) 

Me, Judith, Sarah
Thank you to all who have contributed blocks to this great idea &, if you like, you can check out our progress on the Bee Blessed flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/groups/beeblessed/

I also managed to finish this little ticker tape number for my Goodie Swap partner 1:
I really love this swap as you have to make a mug rug PLUS something else for your partner.... so, I also made this:
My partners likes are purple and turquoise... & I'm really hoping she'll like them
There's certainly plenty of purple in there!
When you have a moment, check out some of the great stuff the Goodie Swap folk are making at http://www.flickr.com/groups/1788451@N22/
Have a great day & take care if you are out & about in the UK... the wind is picking up!
