Swap block

I've been so busy with my guests that I didn't have time to post this picture of the block that Fiona sent to me , I asked for star blocks in earth tones and this one is perfect , just love it ! Thanks so much Fiona .
No sewing happening around here these days my granddaughters have kept me busy with other things , they are off to a wedding in Newfoundland now but will return in a few days and stay with us until Aug. 2nd and our plan is to do a little sewing together when they return.
Tomorrow our oldest son is performing in the Musical Ride with the RCMP so we will be going to see that , I will take my camera along to share photos . We are so proud of him and I am excited for my parents to see him on a horse as my Dad is an avid horseman and it really is making him a proud grandfather to have Rob on horseback . This is a life long dream of Rob's to be in the Ride and his first tour with the troop which makes this extra special . The funny thing is Rob had never riden a horse before joining the Musical Ride , other than a pony ride when he was about 7 ,so he had a lot to learn and has grown to love horses in a very special way .Since I also love horses I know how he feels , my dream of owning a horse never materialised but it is so nice to have my son live his dream with the horses.
Hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods , enjoy your day what ever the weather and thanks for the visit.
hugs Sheila
