Oh so tired ...

... thankfully it's nearly April, time for the Easter school break, and a little time off work for me ...

and whilst I am more tired than an tired old thing ... really I am ...
 I've snuck in a little over the last week I really should share ...


first up last weekend I did manage to get this block made and all prepared for the Block of the Month for the Pea Room Quilters  ...


Swoon blocks #3 ...


and #4 ...


and for the Scrappy Mug Rug Swap over on Flickr,  this is the mug rug winging it's way to my partner with one or two other goodies she may or may not like ...

... and I won! 


from the very talented and equally lovely Hadley of Flying Blind on a Rocket Cycle ...


the gorgeous key ring, made just for little ol' me!  Thank you Hadley, I absolutely love it! 
And to celebrate, I just HAD to buy it a matching hand bag!



Cute eh? 

And talking of cuteness ....


no .... don't  .... definitely don't have those sort of thoughts!

I've been helping a friend make these for her daughter ... :) 

So, if that all isn't enough,  I'm quilting the most beautiful Lone Star quilt for somebody at the moment ...


just  a little quilt at 100" square! 

There have been a couple or more purchases too, but I'll save those for another post ...

there may also be more arrivals in the mean time! 

Oops! 

So, just the small matter of work for the rest of the week ... is it  really only Monday? 

wish me luck!

Love the new bag! That's like buying a new outfit to go with a new pair of shoes!! Sorry you are so pooped at the mo. Try and enjoy some sunshine and vitamin D if you can. Less than 2 weeks to go! Jxo

I think that we are all on count down for the hols. It feels as if it has been a long term. Hopefully the sunshine will get you through to the finishing line! Loving the green bag! Di xo

Good to hear from you, but not so good to hear how tired you are. It's not long now till R&R time, so hang in there just a few more days.
