Lucky me

This gorgeous block arrived on Friday.  It came with some delicious owl fabric and a gorgeous owl card.  Alethea is very funny and wrote in the card
Can't decide whether to call it Owl-vis, Owl McPherson or Owl-Capone.  Nevertheless he/she comes from Owl Catraz.
Made me smile all weekend.  Thank you so much Alethea, I love this block.
I sent this star to Alethea which I had a lot of fun fussy cutting.  I popped in a couple of coasters showing birds who come to feed in my garden each day.
I love being part of this group.  Many thanks to Sue for organising it for us.

I know Alethea personally from when we lived in NZ and our hubbies were warkmates. She has always been such a fun and positive person to be with. Miss you heaps! Blocks are both gorgeous!!!!!
