Siggie and Pot Holder



Another siggie block arrived this week
From Nicola in Germany She says the mushroom is a sign of luck so she is sending a little bit of luck around the world








If you want to have a look at the siggie swap ,have a look at Annalies' blog
http://www.quiltsandsiggies.web-log.nl/

The centre block is cut at 3 5/8in and the outer is 3 1/2 cut into four triangles The finished size is 4 1/2 inches
I have been overwhelmed by the response to my request for siggies from my lovely Blogging friends Thankyou
These are the potholders I made for the pot holder pass swap
My partner I am sure does not read my blog so I can show you She collects roosters and likes blue
Lorraine came home from Hospital late last night after having the lung drained again they started her back on chemo and let her leave Iam off to see her now
The Doctors have decided that it is not the gallstones making her sick , but the liver and they hope the chemo will fix the problem
Let's hope so

Roosters and blue, these ones are not for me then! LOL I'm sure the recipient will love them. I'm itching to see what my partner thinks of mine.
