Another week has gone by and my purple featherweight is still not finished.  As you can tell I just can not wait to get it back and start sewing with it.
Yesterday was a busy but fun day.  I do not get to do much with Wanda (my sister) since we live about an hour apart and she is always busy.  Yesterday we shopped until we dropped buying things for Autumn's wedding.  Autumn is still in the Army and stationed in New York.  She will be home about 3 or 4 days before her wedding so she does not have time to plan everything.  I think we pretty much got everything done that can be done for now. 
I have to show you the block I did for Alex she is my swap buddy this month from Australia.  I put it in the mail this morning to her.

If you are interested in joining the block swap you can visit Alex at just leave her a message 
and she will get back with you. 

I have also joined the Santa Sack Swap and Cheryll is in charge of this one. You
can visit her at just emailed her and let her
know you would like to join.  This only my second swap and I am so loving it. The
swaps have been so much fun to make.  Hope you will join in.

Well I guess I should do a little yard work.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
