A few weeks ago I asked for friends to take part in the Hugs-n-Kisses Stitching Round the Block fun (see my side-bar for the link). We ended up with two 'teams' of 4 from that plea... some of my real-life-friends (as opposed to my bloggy-friends who I have met through blogging.... what do we call them all? In the skin friends, virtual friends?? And what about those friends who started off as bloggy friends and then you meet 'properly' - are they real life virtual friends??? Sigh, I'm not sure where this is heading....!!)
Anyway, some of my friends are giving me ALL the blame for them getting involved.... but I did not make them push the SEND button after they said 'yes, they would love to take part...' ANYWAY, inspite of it all, I think we are having a lot of fun with this project; there are a few challenges, like tiny hexagons, but we are learning new skills and mastering them!!
Here is my choice of fabric and the first block.
I sent it to Leanne, and this (below) is what she has done so far....
OHH it was so exciting to see what she is up to!!Janis sent me her block, here is all I am showing of what I have been up to on hers.....
I thought I would show the fruit of my labours this spring..... we went out the back today to vaccinate the weaner calves. Here's all 102 of them (plus 15 at home, still on milk)—

I have worked out why my brain was working overtime at the start of this post, when I started rambling about bloggy friends - it is because I was extremely brave and drunk this just before I leapt on the computer.... ED is now at home and she decided I needed to try her smoothie!! I don't think I have ever drunken anything so green, but it actually wasn't too bad!!
Now, while my brain and body is working overtime from that healthy snack, I'd best go and get some work done!!
Happy stitching everyone,
