Couldn't resist!

When my husband and daughter went off canoeing today I found myself with a couple of free hours...should I clean out the wardrobe? No. Should I fold and iron the washing? No.
Should I make Vicki's second block? YES!!!!
So I did. :-)

I used the same background fabric as the block I made yesterday, and the same for the heart, but I found a piece of dyed 'stuff' I'd cut out of an old damaged fairy skirt I'd rescued from the charity store years ago, and it looked just right!
And of course, I added another Swarovski crystal, a pink one this time.

Now to find two wooden frames...and then I know exactly where I'll hang them!

What new things have you been creating today?

Hugs
Jenny

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
