A Little Behind...

But I am catching up...
so much has been happening in my life this year and the last 3 months have been hectic...
our eldest daughter's wedding in early May
a grandchild at the end of May
and living 7 hours away the driving is intense
then we sold our sheep property
and moved mid July
then the day we moved my MIL was rushed to hospital
and spent the next 2 and a half months in hospital
she ended up with open heart surgery and nearly didn't survive the after math
during that time the new grandchild had to have major surgery then a smaller op two weeks later
plus we were trying to unpack
now we have our youngest daughter getting married this weekend
but I have been catching up with my swap blocks
and only have one more to do out of four...
first my August partner was
Alison 
and she had two wish choices and I chose the string block
white one side and blues the other...
 second my September partner Michell
and she wished for an Ohio Star block in white and red...
for October I have two partners
first is Sharyn and she wished for any star on a blue background...
now all I need to do is the second partner for this month...
Luv Tarnyia

Hope the rest of the year is smooth sailing - you should have asked - I could have "angelled" your blocks.
