some goodies, some work...

hello fellow crafters!
hope this blog finds you well today. we are heading for a hot spell here in adelaide, and today was quite warm out here

but happiness in the mail box!
i got this lovely package from melody for the regular block swap for jan.
she put in some iron ons for the little human, and a lovely 'crafty pig' tape measure that i LOVE!

and this is her block - a doggy block!

then a bit of my work.  hubby decided that puglet HAD to have a quilt like the little human's and so the jungle quilt has started.  the plan is to have this middle panel, the red, the yellow with 'little *****'s jungle' on it (the little human's says 'little ****'s farm) and then some blown up applique blocks with 6 of the animals from the panel.
so far, i have bought a lot of blending fabric.....and sewn on two pieces....better get a move on!

but in good news, i finished my friend's wedding quilt.....i am seeing her tomorrow, so that is great too.  i am happy with how it turned out.  i still have to sew the binding on the back..

and just for good measure, here is a photo of the little human and mickey.  the little human has just realised that if he climbs onto the back of the couch, he can see from the lounge room into the kitchen - he is pretty pleased with himself, and thought that mickey needed to see too.

in the hot weather i am definitely feeling pregnant, and now i really look pregnant (which in some ways is better than just looking fat!).  not looking forward to 39 tomorrow and then 40 degrees on sunday - but we are lucky because we have air con - so can't really complain (but i probably will!)

stay cool, or warm, depending on where you are in the world!

pugs and hot kisses
