I was away for the weekend last week, so I did not get a chance to link up. This post is my progress for the last 2 weeks.
First up, I made 12 little Twinkler stars.
Each month I am astonished at the variety of shades there are for the colour of the month. Brown is brown you might say. Not so. There is everything from deep, almost black brown, through the rusty red shades, the chocolates, and the orange/yellow tans. The colours reminded me of the Australian outback during the dry season as I was sewing these up.

Then I scratched around looking for the pieces I was sure I had cut ready to make up into the Crossroads Block. Nowhere in sight! So I cut some more and made this.
After taking the photo, I was about to put it away when I found I had already made the Crossroads block in brown. That's why I couldn't find the fabric I had cut.
I posted about it here. I'm a duffer as Shez said the other day. LOL I hadn't heard that word used in forever, so if you are reading this Shez, I'm warning you that I'm pinching it. :)
Then this afternoon, I made up 6 little Bow Tie blocks.
It was tax return avoidance technique at its best. I was doing my tax this morning, and by 3pm I'd had a gut full.
Now for the fun part. A little while ago, I told myself that the next time I had 20 or more comments, I would do a little surprise give away. I have been waiting for the day for a while. Well the RSC link up always produces the most comments on my blog, and the last time I posted, there were 23 comments. You are all such a supportive crowd, I am really pleased that it was from the RSC link up which triggered the give away.
I used Mr Random to choose a number for me, which turned out to be 6. Julie, who blogs here, was the lucky winner. I am planning to make something up for her and have emailed her to let her know. Congrats to Julie.
