I hope you've all had a lovely weekend over here with me - I've had a smashing time!
I've finished my candle block (bar the applique flame) and cut the pieces for my two star blocks for the Challenge - and I'm where I want to be on this project at this point.
I've done some baking, stretched the ol' grey matter a bit and been around the world admiring what everyone has been up to - the best bit of the Quiltalong!

For next month - 10th/11th August - we're back to Joanna's for more fun and fabrics. You coming?
