Gift giving and stitching

I got on blogger this morning to find its all changed. Why do they do that. I was happy with the old layout so I have been sitting here with my 12 year son while he talks me through all the new changes and shows me what to do, Kids are so smart.. He has helped me do this post so I hope you can understand it.
I have finished another block of my Sunshine frolics quilt, this is such a fun project, I'm nearly ready to start putting it together.

These photos aren't in order for some reason but I wanted to share with you  gifts I made for my on line stitching group birthday swap. I have started adding little labels I made to my projects. Just a little reminder who they got their gift from.

The theme was "GROW   COOK    EAT" so I made a recipe journal cover and a table mat, they were fun to make and I loved using the retro fabric.

I'm glad you liked them Sue.
Today I plan to do some sewing on a new project I  have been working on using Vintage modern fabric. I love this range just as much as Ruby and Bliss.
I hope you find some sewing time today.

I had to have a little giggle as I to have sat her this morning with my 12 y.o. son trying to get google chrome loaded and to work my way around the new look blogger..... I don't like change which also explains why I had to upgrade the google chrome!

Lovely block xx

I can't see any changes to my blogger so maybe the surprise is yet to come. What will I do, I'll have to go hire a 12 year old! Love the cooking journal & the retro fabrics. Can't wait to see what you are doing with Vintage Modern. Sunshine Frolics looks so pretty. Tracee xx
