I've been playing in the land of swap.
I had to send out my fabric for the 1st Wednesday Block Swap. I decided on a whole lot of brights to make these Wonky Squares. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes back my way.

I made a few cross blocks for Louise as part of the Around The Block swap. 

 Then I had to choose a block with a star that also had a look of movement. It puzzled me a bit but then I found this block called Star Lane. I tweaked it so it fit the fabulous fabric I had to play with and this is what I came up with. I must say I loved the red, white and blue combination. If I have a boy..................
But then I worked on some gorgeous pink, green and yellow fabrics and I thought, if I have a girl.........

And that is why surprises are good!

This is the lucky last block completed for the Around the Block swap. Phew!!! That's a lot of swapsies in a few days. It's nice to know I won't be holding anyone up while I am bunkered down with Mini CP.

And now it's time for a cuppa and a rest on the couch....
