Simone's charity quilt

I received these fabrics from Simone at the weekend, they are for a charity quilt that she is organising for Dromenquilts - you can read about the quilt challenge here, and more about it here.


Stephanie has made hers and sent them back already! and just like Stephanie, I had some trouble interpreting the flying geese instructions, they were quite complicated, and it has been some time now since I have made flying geese blocks so I needed some practice....

I found Sarah's tutorial really helpful! Thank you so much Sarah...

I have had the munchies all day, and have been snacking on these, just about had the whole jolly packet all by myself! GREEDY!!!

but then I decided that if I was going to eat choc goodies, then I might bake this and take it to the BBQ we are off to with friends tonite... it is a very yummy Oaty Coffee Wedge...

I have also been a bit of a domestic char today, the washing done and back in, (we go through so many beach towels with the hot tub, I am pretty much washing them every day, sometime several times a day!!)

Rowing man's shirts all ironed and hanging in his wardrobe,

and making him some of his favourite - marmalade!!

I hope that you get your blocks soon Simone, I gave them to Rowing Man to drop at the Post Office on his way back to work from lunch, and in the rush to get them in the post, never got a photo of the finished blocks. Hopefully they will be there in a week or thereabouts, I have tucked in a little goodie for you also! You are such a sweetie organising this challenge. I am sure that it is no easy feat, especially when blocks are being sent and received from all around the world.

Have a fun week everyone...

Such a domestic Diva, whats wrong with you....... and you don't eat biscuits..... if I didn't know better.....mind you cameo creams hard not to nibble on them especially the mint of jaffa flavoured ones.....
You make me feel guilty with all of your domesticity... I'm on day 4 of migraine so have an excuse.

First of all you little home goddess, I want the recipe for that oaty thing, it looks really nice, in fact it looks really, really nice! Secondly, Cameo Creams, yummeeee! I'm into the jaffa ones, dunked! Oh God I'm hungry I just want sweet things - your not being very fair you know.
I've done 70km on that darned bike and if I have just a wee bit of what you ate I'd have to do another 70!
The celery is calling
