BLINK!!! where did the week go??

I cannot beleive its been a WHOLE week since I was here.. well ok, 6 days, but hey, where did last week go? I did plan on doing the scatterdays thingy but sheesh, Saturday kinda crept up on me! (dont you hate that??)

I just delivered a Pay it Forward gift and one is off to the letterbox later.. I am off to Sydney in the morning dancing.. well not ME dancing, but the scruffy ballerina is off to do what she does best, tap dancing!

I did have a wee drawing last week, and Blessed Di won the miniature amish quilt.. it really is miniature Di, so thats in the mail on its way to you.. and there were two button sets also to give away, Lucy Locket won one and Dotty Cookie the other, so if they could email me their snail mail I'll post them through the week.. I didn't know how to do the drawing, so I whacked the names on a spreadsheet and got the kids to call out random numbers, and hey presto three winners! :O) I could of printed stuffs off and got the fruit bowl emptied and did it that way, had the kids NOT USED ALL THE $#$@#$%@# ink! ARGH!

so what does a week of quiet Lissa bring? what have I been up to?? well I stuffed up and made a block wrong, so a bit of unsewing.. *sigh* I hate unsewing, but I have been busy with step 6 of the Carolina Crossroads mystery! I am LOVING LOVING this quilt and the last 'step' is this week.. woohoo! This pic includes the mistake (the small triangle I put the hourglass block in around the wrong way, so please do not call the quilt police, my error has been rectified)

I made the pay it forward gifts, I thought I am such a slacker so I'll do it sooner rather that 'LEAVE IT TO THE LAST MINUTE' so if you signed up for pay it forward and you left the pay it forward grab on your blog, well your giftie is in the mail! I also made a block for a swap, its a 9" finished nine patch, I think it come together ok.. I made a dozen or more 9 patch blocks, they are my leader/enders so I have about 40 now, they are looking mighty fine (even though I am biased)..

I did also make the week 8 quilt a long blocks and I put them all together to see what they looked like.. I think they are looking lovely (again the biased thing happening)

Well if you have read this far without falling asleep I salute you! ha ha..

till next time...

Ohhh you make me feel so bad !!! Alright I am off now to tackle the hulk - well its green and huge and kinda lumpy.
I soooo envy your patchwork and quilting skills.

Oh wow Lissa! Thank you so much! I'll send you an email straight away with my address! Those blocks are incredible by the way - you are doing some seriously impressive stuff! Lucy x

your blocks look so pretty all together!

you made a comment about loving square quilts, so now I have to try my hand at making one. I have only made a square doll quilt at this point, but the thought of a larger sized one is intriguing me. thanks for planting this wonderful idea in my head.

The blocks look amazing! Oh...PIF gifts, they always seem to end up on the bottom of my list. Not fair though... I have to get them in the mail before the 365 days are over! (still some 150 days to go LOL!)

Lindi said...

Thanks, Lissa, for my PIF gift. I love everything! I didn't expect it so soon. You really are industrious, aren't you?
