Off to Texas...

A lil-looksie for Jessisca in Texas!
It should already be at her home
 so I will show you what I sent.

Hope she likes it & it will fit in with her other blocks!
As you may already know ...This is one of my favorite blocks to make
and you know it's a joy to sew!
Just come there is a lil-thread that you don't see
till you post the picture & there it is! Ha! Such is life! Smile...

Christmas In July Mug Rug Swap 2012 - results

Well, I think I can safely say that our Christmas in July Mug Rug Swap for 2012 was pretty much a success, judging by some of the gorgeous photos that have been posted here during the month.

There are a few stragglers that I am chasing up, but all in all, I think it went well ;-)  (huge sigh of relief ;-))

All swappers are noted on the blog sidebar on the right - most have been marked as completed, or sent & recd, or sent (not yet received) and will continue to be updated during these closing stages.

Please let me know if there are any issues in relation to those swaps that are incomplete - I will do my best to track it down ;-)

Well done!
Cathy, xxx

Full View

I did get word that yes....Vicki did receive the block I'd sent!
I had wondered as I'd not heard from her?
Now, I have & she said that she was just running behind.
Who has not done that before....(smile) No problem.
I see that she has a pic of my July block that's coming & it's
lovely & I am looking forward to seeing it! Love the colors!
I do hope that she is enjoying her
"Court House Steps Block"!

I so love the log-cabins & this is a take off from that & very enjoyable to do as well!
