More blocks and some wonderful mail

I was away for a few days visiting with my Mom , I had a lovely visit and now am happy to be back home . I have made the other two blocks for the Bom with our quilt guild , both a little more challenging than the first block but I love a challenge :-)
 
The names of these blocks are Denise's Star, Crosses and Losses and Double Aster , they can all be found on Quilters cache  . I also worked on some more shirt blocks and have a total of eight now , yippe . I plan on working on these as leaders and enders , it will make the work go faster .  
My veterans quilt is now quilted and I sewed the binding on but need to sew it down on the back , even sewed the label in as I sewed the binding on so getting closer to a finish :-) I will share a photo once it is completed .

 Now for the great mail I received today , a lovely creative postcard from Judy , a surprise for sure but a very nice one too .
Isn't this fantastic , some birch trees in their fall colours , just gorgeous . Thank so much Judy , it was so thoughtful of you , I just love it !! 
I am on the run today so I hope you are doing something fun and creative and thanks so much for stopping by.
 hugs Sheila
