November

Our November swap is complete.
I am so thrilled to post my block from Karen P
along with what a special gift she enclosed.
    Karen P sent me this lovely made "monkey-wrench block"
 for the collection. I am nearing to the last few to put them together! Yeah!
Along with my block she sent a lovely put together packet of maps of Australia,
where she is from, a few postcards showing different lovely lil-towns and a beautiful typed letter about her family and locations!
Karen knew we home schooled and I told her  we always  look up where my swap partner lives.
Geography! Smile
Well, this sweet put together packet of information is a gem to us and so much fun to see where so
many of you are from!
We are putting this in our learning center as a learning tool now!
That's was such a kind thing for her to do.
You see it's so much more that the blessing of lovely blocks right ladies, it's getting to know each other and make friends from all over! Thank you Karen!
Now we would so love to come visit... smile
 
 
Karen had requested a church dash and in blues & white as it's for a gentlemen's quilt!
This is the block that I did for her...
Hope it fits with her collection
Blessings~
