Tetris QAL Block 2

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to the Fat Quarter Shop and Melissa for sponsoring the giveaways on this QAL. I was lucky enough to win a jelly roll of Birds and Bees by Tula Pink.  I LOVE this latest range of hers and had it on my wish list, so was overjoyed to find I had won it. Thanks so much FQS and Melissa.

I was excited to see the next block come out for the Tetris QAL.  I carefully cut out my shapes and coloured them as instructed, then gave them to my daughter to place them as she saw fit, so the end result is her interpretation. I will do this for the rest of the blocks as well, so each family member has  a say in this quilt.  I love the brightness of the solids...it's such a "happy quilt".

Catch-up

To be honest, I haven't felt like blogging over the last few months.  I have been keeping up with everyone's posts in Google Reader though even if I haven't replied to many of you.   Now that life has resumed to normal for me, I have far too many other things to do other than blog!!

Tony and I have just had a holiday in Hawaii. Oh my gosh, I loved this place.   Since we are in the middle of winter here the warm tropical climate was just divine. I tortured myself my leaving the weather app on my phone and checking it for the next 2 weeks after we got home.  I am already saving for my next holiday there.... did have to buy an extra suitcase for all my shopping though, gulp! 

Overlooking Haunamu Bay...amazing snorkelling


I have been sewing...lots of bee blocks and I have just joined the Tetris Quilt-along that  Melissa is hosting. I chose Kona solids in bright colours. 


First block in the Tetris QAL


Sarah has had the last stage in her journey and had her plate removed from her broken femur a month ago. It all seems like such a age ago and you would hardly believe that 8 months ago, she was unconscious in intensive care.  The human body is an incredible thing.


Sarah a couple of hours after her op.


She has been cutting up fabric today and making wheat bags.  I think we might have a new quilter in the making....
