This block I made to comfort Linda who recently lost her grandchild, it is on it's way to the USA. I hope Linda will like the colors and Beatrix Potter theme.
Linda, you and your family are in my thoughts!

Block for Lori
This block I made this week for Lori in the USA. She is a member of the CQForNewbies list just like me and has received a new kidney. On this list you can join a "Hearts and flowers shower" and make a CQ block for someone to show you are thinking about her. You have to make an 8" block and embellish 2 seams and one part of it. I made this one in mostly purple because that is Lori's favorite color. It will be mailed out tomorrow.

Luckely everything is OK again with doggie Daisy. Today we made a long walk for almost 2 hours through the woods and she has been swimming again also! This evening we went out for dinner with 2 of my old collegues and their DH's, we had a real Chinese dinner at Wing Kee (ate Beijing duck for the first time!)and after that we went to town and sat on a terrace and had some drinks, really cosy!

Soon we will leave for vacation to Las Vegas and the canyons and we are so much looking forward to that! I have been trying to get some summer clothes today which wasn't easy! The shops are all full of autumn/winter clothing already.....
