More goodies from the postman

More Orphan Block cards in this mornings post this time from Sharon Zurbrigg, top card. I love the sentiment on the card Sharon - I had one of my five portions of fruit and veg this afternoon - carrot cake!!! I now don't feel guilty. The second pretty card is from Leah Malasky. Leah tells me this is an orphan block from a baby blanket she made for a friend some time ago, well I'm happy to adopt both cards.

Been to Embsay Mills today spending lots of money on embroidery threads. I'll post a photo later as Keith is making starving faces, I think he needs refuelling and I'm a bit hungry myself.

I'm going to steal your idea Annette. What a great trade. It's cute to give "orphan's" homes!

I like the orphan block idea too! I too am still playing with the "showers" theme. I think I have the general idea but need to firm up how I'm going to put it together.

Lots of our local shops are also closing. Before long you won't be able to "pet" fabric and threads except at shows! Seems everything is headed to the World Wide Web.
