Getting Shirty

What an absolutely gorgeous weekend it is the weather is just perfect.
You can definitely tell that Spring has arrived with the showing of 7 little ducklings and parents swimming on the dam.
We had our lovely neighbours over for tea last night....
Yes they were quite tasty, would of been great if there was a bit more meat on their bones.....hehehe
Seriously though it was a terrific night with plenty of food and wine and some great laughs.
I can now unveil the Summer mini that Sue & I had done on behalf of Tania
De over at Re-De-Zines has let me know that she has received it.
 I have done some work on the Shirt Challenge and cut out 100's of 1 1/2" Blocks
and twice as many 2 1/2" x 3" Rectangles
Look at how nice all of theses fabrics go together.....
Not! 
they look even more fabulous on the pool table green....hehehehe
Now for some show n tell, 
my beautiful friend Shez had surprised me by sending one of her lovely needle books and scissor keeps to me for my Birthday....
How sweet are they..Thanks Shez, I just love them.
Have a great weekend everyone......
and how is your Shirt challenge coming along?
