Block 32 Again

  • Beeskep & Flower

Meantime I'll show you pictures
of my new babies and how they're growing.

Lavender Orpington

Grown up Lavender Orpington rooster

And grown up Silver Laced Orpington hen and rooster.

Homestead quilt pattern with Lavender Orpington chickens coming soon.

In case you can't tell, 
my computer isn't
working very well.

My patterns are often quite
complex and take up a
lot of room so my computer is over full.

I bought a new one but when it 
got here it wouldn't turn on
so we had to send it back.

Hopefully by next week things will be better.  

Meanwhile lets see if this one will
still show us the rest of the blocks.
We'll try again next Moda Wednesday.

See you then.

the new Blogger.  As soon as Tammie gets here I'll have her

your browser.  That will take you to your pattern.

little wallhanging.

lets go see what the others have done with
