It has been a few days since my previous post, and I don't have all that much to show for for this time. This weekend I spent at the summer house with my family; relaxing, playing cards, and enjoying some good food :o) I also managed to stitch up a couple more SBS blocks:

This is G-9: Modern Tulip and I-10: Rocky Road to Dublin -I've almost got them all done now... and am contamplating what to do for borders once I've pieced them together.

I have started on the second set of Bright flowers on black-blocks, seeing as I was able to buy some more Vliesofix on Monday. But I haven't stitched around the shapes yet, so I'll keep them for myself for a little while longer, and show you a picture of them as soon as they are done. Instead I'll show you a picture of the first blocks I have received in the swap. These lovely blocks are from Nina and fell into my mailbox on Monday. Aren't they pretty?

Hope you are having a productive day!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
