I have been trying to write this blog post for hours. Somehow I kept getting distracted so here I am now. Andy has gone to bed as he's up early in the morning as he's off to the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles - there is great excitement* about this.

*not from me

It's been a busy old day - went through to Edinburgh for a craft show - got lots of lovely new dies to play with but came home and didn't bother playing with them as I watched Strictly and Doctor Who instead! Love Saturday night TV in Autumn.

So, to today's card - my friend Debs asked me to do a baby boy card like one I had done before and while it's similar to one I had done it's not quite the same. I love this little baby image from LotV. I think next time I'll paper piece the blanket too - maybe!

Aww this is really sweet Susan… I love the star frame and the gingham buttons and ribbon… all perfect for a baby boy! :-)
Hope you have a nice Sunday!
Big hugs

This is so sweet - love the paper piecing and the colours are gorgeous. Mission accomplished (kinda) with the ironing: got half done yesterday, and almost got the rest done today. Did most of it and then just couldn't face doing the kingsize duvet cover... life is just too short. The BW and I have spent HOURS on his English and French solo talks (both scheduled for tomorrow). Brace yourself - you've got all this to come! Hope work is going well. Who are you backing for Strictly? Likin' Alison Hammond and that Frankie girl, felt a bit sorry for Judy. Haven't heard of half of the blokes, but reckon Greg Wallace should stick to shouting. xxx

So sweet Susan, love this! Must get out my LOTV babies for a play. I have an order to do, enough procrastinating! ;) Totally inspired after seeing this. Love the paper piecing, looks fab. Hugs, Wends x
