  1. These are so diverse and delightful. Looking forward to the next segment. Thank you all for sharing them with us.

  2. I am having a problem linking my Instagram post to the linky party. If you would be able to email me, and let me know the way to do it I would be so grateful. Each time I try, I can add my own URL, then the title, but no images come up. If this fails I can do a blog post and use that for the link, as I have done that before. Loved all the blocks, they have been such fun to make.


Thank you for visiting and for your comments! I try to reply to comments via email, so if you're expecting a response and don't hear from me, check if you're a no-reply blogger. Happy sewing!
