With that in mind I have been very keen with this months HipBees bee block for Jude. I got the parcel this morning and the block is all done
This was great fun to make and I still need to do the siggy block. I know that the first week back at work is going to be a manic, late evenings will start again etc, so I thought I would strick while the iron is hot.
Beccy was also doing some sewing today, so seemed like as good a time as any. This is her block. A small error in the first bit of the log cabin, but not noticable really and she now understands what its all about!
I also got my Brit Quilt in the post today, along with some extras. I really hope my partner likes it.

I have decided this will be my last swap for a while. I have loved this one and the purse swap that Nicky did at the beginning of the summer (well, in fact all of the swaps that I have done!) , but it has become increasingly difficult to keep up with writing the comments. It can be s0 discouraging when your partner doesn't comment. We are all such busy people and the fact that someone hasn't left a comment doesn't mean that they hate it, just that they don't have the time. I have found it hard to find the time to comment, and I really do make an effort to try and comment at least once on each person. I don't want to be the person that lets my partner down, so I am going to take a small break from them .
I am ashamed to say I havn't really got in to the paralympics like I did the olympics. I think the C4 coverage is so amateur compared to the beeb and the adverts were making me so mad. I have been catching up on it all on the computer and that is working for me. Its such a shame as these olympians are soooo inspiring
