Today we.....

had fabulous day out at a friends home. 
The sort of day that on the drive home 
we always say 'lets do that again'.
Our family spending some quality time 
with another precious family who always
bless us with their hospitality, wit and laughter. 
 We have such a ball, sharing lunch and lots of chatting
and laughing till our sides hurt.
  Sharing together.....pure bliss!

Tonight I am sewing my blocks together on this 
 then adding borders ready to quilt.
Can't wait to finish it ready for Christmas.
Later this week I hope to share a design for you to stitch
in time to make it for Christmas.
remember the sneak peek in this post?
 Its almost done and then I'll share with you.

 Don't forget to pop past tomorrow for 
another block for our 'Out of the Box' BOM.
Another favorite of mine.... he he
 Have you loaded any pictures of completed blocks
to 'Out of the Box' Flckr,
 You still have little time and then tomorrow night
I will also draw the winner of my surprise giveaway!

 Happy Hugs

Hi Dawn,
I can't think of anything nicer than spending a day with friends. Laughing and sharing with friends does us all the world of good. What a great picture you've found to illustrate the point.
Can't wait to see your lovely colourful quilt all sewn together.
Warm hugs Angela xx
