'See-ing double' Butterflies for Sue V of Rockingham

Finished these blocks for Sue. Hopefully a suitable addition to her collection. It is on the way to Western Australia as we speak.  Look out for it, Sue

Mug Rug from Anne (Nova Scotia, Canada)

It is always a pleasure to get mail and especially one all the way from Canada. Thank You Ann and as expected the fabrics are beautiful! Wish our fabric stores could be more generous with the variety of Christmas fabrics, otherwise there's always the on-line stores. She also included the 'I love Lucy' panels and who doesn't LOVE Lucy!!! Thank you very much Ann.

Scrappy selvidges

My second partner for the month is Robyn R who requested any scrappy block with a hint of blue.

So I asked Robyn if she minded I try making her a block with selvidges.

I had fun playing around with these, and made them both a love theme.  I hope you like them Robyn, sorry if the picture is not great, I left my camera at work and took the pic with my iphone
