|Andrew picked up orange from somewhere, did a colour swap on the camera and made the white clouds dramatic.|

Here are my first two blocks. I've tried to keep to mainly Jan Mullens fabrics - which is a feat for me - I always go for a scrappy look...
I was feeling terrible a couple of days ago, I'd yelled at my kids.
Then Andrew (my 13-year-old) said out of the blue - I love you mum, you're kind.
Well, that made me feel wonderful. What a gorgeous boy.
Here's a photo of him an an outdoor ice skating rink they've set up in the city centre.

Here's the fourth block for my houses quilt. I have a rooster and a chook house.
I scored this retro fabric from a guy at work. His partner makes him lots of funky shirts, and I was eyeing his shirt with a gleam in my eye! I said that I felt like cutting the pocket off so I could use it for quilting. He took pity on me and brought in some (quite substantial) scraps.

Isn't this a gorgeous block? Found it on flickr. I've been trying to come up with ideas for a quilt using just one collection of fabric, instead of my usual scrappy look. This could be it... Now a good reason to buy more fabric!!
