I managed to get home a little early from work today, and as well as a lovely package of some more country themed fabrics ( a recent ebay purchase), I also received Crafy Pugs block in the mail. Its just perfect,.. thank you so much. Its also lovely to receive the notes and cards with the blocks and I have to say without a doubt Crafty Pugs note is the most interesting - it is made from paper which is made from recycled wombat poo! How extraordinary is that.. I cant say that I would have ever imagined using it for that purpose.
We already have 2 new members starting their first block swap in August and I am looking forward to doing their first swaps. I now know what each of them would like so its off to the pattern books (or google) and also to my stash to start planning. I will be emailing all other members their August swaps next week .
I have received enough blocks now from my USA and Australian groups combined to start playing around with them, and its really interesting how they all do fit together quite well. I plan to put them together in a quilt when I have about 12, so I am getting there as I think I have 7 so far. When the quilts done I will be sure to publish a photo of it - but for now here is the lovely block crafty Pugs made for me.
