Block 2 - Free Pattern

Saturday, June 6, 2009
Hi from the Fleurieu Peninsula on a cold wintry day! This is just the weather for curling up under a quilt and doing some stitching, so I have uploaded Block 2 of the Free Block of the Month Pattern which is available from here. I do hope you are enjoying stitching these little blocks.

My husband and I are getting quite excited as we are making plans for our winter holiday. My idea of winter holidays is to ESCAPE the winter and head for the warm sunny north! This year we hope to go via Lake Eyre which has a lot of water in it at the moment. It was nine years ago in 2000 that it last had water flowing into it, so this for us is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as it probably won't happen again for another decade or so. We are planning on taking a scenic flight when we get there as the Lake is huge (9300 square kilometres) and most of it is fairly inaccessible. We are avid birdwatchers so we are looking forward to seeeing some of the thousands of birds that somehow sensed there was water there and have flown in from all over Australia.

Meanwhile I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your completed blocks.
