Wagging…

wagging… ditching, jigging, dogging, bludging, skiving off… what term do you use to describe wagging school or in my case today wagging farm and housework? Yep that’s what I am doing today… I rang DH this morning to say I wouldn’t be in today! Instead I awoke early(can’t seem to sleep in on my mornings off, Lol) made myself a cuppa and made my new favourite block for my Farmers Wife Quilt…

I am sew happy with the way it turned out… I had to order some more fabrics for the FWQ as I am using jellyrolls and some blocks required pieces bigger than 2 1/2” and they finally arrived yesterday…

Mr Postman delivered some books too(last week…)

There are soooo many things I want to make in here, Tilda has a style I am really enjoying at the moment :o) I bought this one as well…

(Insert note to Georgie here… this is the book Claire made my gorgeous slippers from)

And the latest Jellyroll book by to add to my growing collection…

The Book Depository really is a dangerous place for me to visit…

As for the rest of my day I am off to meet a friend for lunch, do a little shopping and hopefully make a start on this months mod podge challenge… I hope you have a wonderful day planned as well!

Happy Friday…

Lovely little block, very sweet. I love your new purchases - I agree the book depository is a dangerous place :-)
