Looking forward to checking out some new to me blogs of the girls in the swap............

Here are some more of my blocks from my SAL quilt...........
this is another adaptation by me............
I LOVE cheese and nibbles..........
Patty cakes
My chair turned into this..........
And something I never see enough of but love...........
I changed the hot chocolate block to a camera as you all know I love to take photos...........
I love hot chocolate to but I already had a cuppa tea..........
It is FREEZING cold here today........it's like one of our worst winter days..........
.....the poor kids in their summer uniforms..........
Stalking the mail man to see if my quilt comes back from the quilters.............

  20. Hallo Chookyblue
    Heel leuk een reactie op mijn blog van jou.
    Ik zie dat je ook met de kerstruil mee gaat doen, spannend hé, mijn eerste keer, ik had vorig jaar Kerst nog geen blog.
    Je blog les ik met de vertaler, ik ben niet zo goed in andere talen.
    Ga je ook volgen.

  30. Sorry ik heb een beetje problemen om heel snel iets te schrijven in het engels. Dus ik hoop dat je het kan vertalen.
    Ook ik doe mee aan de kerstruil. En het is mijn eerste keer. Ik vind het ontzettend spannend. Het is bij ons nu hersft vakantie dus ik heb nu even geen cursusen op te geven dus meer tijd voor de kerst ruil.
    Leuk blog heb je met mooi foto's.
