Today brought the last of the Halloween blocks here    Barb R’s cutsey critters and words arrived safe and sound — Extra special again,  as have never received anything from Australia either!  I am so tickled to have something from Australia and from S.

Here’s my 3 blocks I’m donating for the May drawing — thought I’d never get these posted — turns our my camera’s memory card was full and I also needed a new battery.  Done and we are finally good to go! Tried to keep my blues and greens rich mediums in coloring … they look darker in the picture.  Hope they are  bright/colorful enough. Karen B in...
