Sewing in the cool sewing room

I have done two block 1's today....there are a lot of pieces but I got there.
I made my own quilt design for the window. I strip pieced a block then cut it up to make a pinwheel.

Here is "Nancy's Cupboard" quilt shop to SWAP

And then there is "A Quilter's Home"  for me to keep.

I have also made two block 4's but they still need embellishing. Photos to come.....

The new row this month in Deana's Quilters Garden Mystery is QUILT SHOPS.
They are fun but a lot of pieces. Go and have a look at the other designs. There are 4.

I also received some happy mail today from Sheila from

I was Sheila's 100th follower on her blog so she sent me a little gift. A fabulous little zippered purse with crazy cats on it... As well as a pile of squares for me to use. 
I think these will go into my Bow Tie blocks.

I missed posting about this block I received from Susan..
It is the November STEAM THAT SEAM block.
It is a lovely green that matches so well and a very cute button on it too.
Thanks Susan
