Sewing some blocks

 I have been sewing in between my riding!  I'm doing the splendid sampler.... I wasn't going to as I really don't need another project but after looking at other peoples blocks and seeing colours I saw a chance to use my black and white collection.... I have also thrown in some colour.  I made a mistake on the above block... thus a few extra flying geese.
 This is the quilt shop.... have to do some embroidery.
 And the friendship block.  I haven't tackled the paper piecing yet....
 Now I didn't do this event.... this is called cyclocross.  For those who don't know what it is, its basically cross country on a bike!  you get to have fun in the mud and tackle obstacles and a massive hill.
 A few people I know did the course and made it look really easy, but I know its not.
 It was mothers day a few weeks back... the noisy one made me some yummy pancakes for my dinner.  I also got some beautiful flowers from the froglet, who is in Italy at the moment with her soldier boy.
