I have been trying for over a week to download photos from my computer to my posts but blogger wouldn't let me and after reading  Sew Many Ways post this morning and reading everyones complaints about blogger  I realised I'm not the only one with  issues. I'm sure blogger was eavesdropping because I tried again this afternoon and  hallelujah its working!!                                                                   
So I have completed all my blocks. I've really enjoyed stitching them and I love the wording, a lovely reminder to make/take time for ourselves.

Long Hot Summer

Not much happening around here, too hot, mostly reading and eating lots of iced lollies. I love the real fruity ones. I was looking for something quick and easy to make. This cute pattern I had done ages ago was sitting in my UFO pile, I didn't know what to do with it at the time so yesterday I made a pincushion.

                             Now I have two!

                      I have a knitting bag permanently next to my chair and while watching TV every night I knit very simple baby blankets using big needles so the blankets are soft. These are for aids babies in our rural hospitals and so I have 5 ready to go.

I'm also working on the quilt in the background, using some of the circles that I posted about here
