Second Star!

There is not a lot to talk about today - except my almost perfect Radiating Star from Block of the Month by Material Obsession.

Wednesday presented lots of interruptions, then yesterday a trip to the doctor with Mum, who has a nasty chest infection - lots of people here are going through a flu virus stage at this time!

Now, this one seems pretty perfect to me and am I ever pleased - a Kaffe centre bringing a little sparkle to the Block! Now I'm looking forward to what October will bring. I received my issue of Quilters Companion yesterday and see there is an advert for Material Obsession (Page 19)
saying 'sign up now' so maybe it isn't too late for those still wishing to participate!

Off to the grooming parlor for the puppies this morning and then maybe a start on a special weekend project - this one will be a lot of fun and hopefully will take just a couple of days to complete.

Happy weekend!
