The eyes are open, the mouth moves, but Mr Brain has long since departed......

(That is a quote from the greatest ever comedy, anyone guess which one?
That's kind of how I feel after the last few days, knackered, but I have been victorious, just! 

So, after LARGE piles of these
and these

I now have 6 of these.
3x6 Star Blocks, Grp 11

Mr Technology tried his very hardest to defeat me though no I haven't lost the plot, quite as Hotmail had carked it this afternoon for MOST of the afternoon. I couldn't get the addresses until ten past 5, so after a quick scribble out of the labels, I pretty much ran (I don't do running, anymore) to the Post Office, and got there 3 minutes before closing.  So I am drained, but I have slayed my sewing dragon (so to speak!).
How is it possible when I say these crazy things, I google an image for them, and they really exist, weird. 
Now aside from a little quilt repair for my niece, the 5 year old vandal little darling, which needs to be done before Sunday, I am free to do some fun stuff. My friend has had her baby, and I am pleased to report it's a little girl, conveniently for me, and the present i started sewing 2 weeks ago.  So, that playmat top I have made up needs some basting, quilting and binding, all good fun!
