Shopping Money

My friend Natalie and I share a healthy interest (honestly, it's healthy) in shoes. She came over for lunch yesterday, and the darling friend that she is, had this little birthday gift for me. My lack of photography skills mean you can't read all the writing, it says 'Shopping Money'. How cute is it? And I love the earrings too, and wore them the rest of the day.

Thank you Natalie!


After the kids got to bed last night I got a little stitching done. I achieved one more of my goals for the month. Four Dear Jane blocks.

As you can see, none of them are hard blocks, but it's four more done. I have made 45 now, that's 45 of 169 blocks. What was I thinking making this quilt again??

The block at top left is: H10 Ben's Bowtie. Top right: M12 Hopscotch. Bottom left: J6 Granny Weaver. Bottom right: L7 Town Square.

Sadly for the Winne the Pooh quilt, it didn't make it off the goals list this month, but I did manage to get some work done on it. At the beginning of the month the top was incomplete, needing the final side borders added. That is done now, and I have marked a little of the quilting. Hopefully this month I'll be able to get it done completely!

I managed to achieve my no fabric purchasing goal for another month too! Way to go! I'll write up some new goals soon, just as soon as I've had a bit of a think about what I'd like to achieve.

I admire anyone who does a DJ quilt - it's one thing I'll never start!

Aren't you tempted to start in the middle and start sewing some of the blocks together before you even get them all done?
