Time for something different. This is the final block I sent off to my Craftmad partner for the 2015 block swap. Mandy had requested tropical, blue, yellows and green. I got to choose the design so went the Card Trick block. I really love the brightness and how well the fabrics went together.
I am still sorting through my craft room. Everything went back in its right containers yesterday after a couple of years of quick clean ups and putting gear where it could fit. So nice to know everything has a spot. Now the labeller will be working hard so I remember where the right spot is. :-)
Good news came out of my cleaning and tidying yesterday. After cleaning every room in this house from top to bottom I finally found a small brass sign that went missing after our renovations, two and a bit years ago. I so knew it was here but it was not any of the places I had been looking over those two years.
This brass sign is very special to my husband as he served in the Navy as a Victualler and a big memory is that he served on HMAS Melbourne the last conventional aircraft carrier for Australia. It was decommissioned in 1982 and he grabbed the Victualling Office sign which we have had attached to a wall in our kitchen ever since. Until the renovations where I removed it and put it somewhere safe. :-) As a Victualler my husband dealt with all the food and clothing orders for the ship along with others in the office.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week.
