I have just come across some photos of blocks sent and received in the last few months that I have failed to blog about :(

My swap partner for our birthday celebrations in April was Amira, and I have to apologise in the delay in posting this. I received not only this beautifully made churn dash with the prettiest fussy cut tea cup centre
But also this fabulous pastel set of fat quarters, they all have a sweet sewing theme to them. And how cute is Amiras card check out her blog Little mushroom cap, she does such amazing work.
Thank you Amira.
Mail takes a while, to and from Canada, but it is worth waiting for a beautiful block like this from Ann -
Janet asked for blue and white. I had a great time making these blocks - simple and different from any I'd made before -
Janet sent a purple pinwheel - soft and gentle colours - so beautiful - I just love it. Thank you so much Janet.
Alison asked for a log cabin block. I've made this block before but not in the striking colours of aqua to teal on one side and lime on the other around a grey centre. This is the one I made -
and here is the lovely pinwheel block that Alison sent me. I love the large prints against the white centre. Thank you so much Alison.

Since I sent the may swap partners out I have had three members email me as they were not allocated a partner, and it seems that some of the data from my spreadsheet has vanished.
So, if you did not get a partner can you please email me so I can find you one, and sadly I will need your postal address and block choice details as well. I do have a number of members sitting out this month, but if you want to email me to double check that I have everything then thats ok. Better to be safe than sorry.
I am sooooo sorry that this has happened and I cant explain it, I back up data every month, but did have a tidy up so may have accidently deleted some of you. So you are not unloved, you just have a swap co ordinator that is a bit silly from time to time. ( either that or gremlins came to visit).
