I just love a scrap...

Thanks to Stephanie's Challenge, I have been working on these strip pieced blocks every now and again. At the moment they are not square, but I will trim them down to 6" finished blocks after a good press and a bit of starch.

Just asking ... has anyone ordered recently a pdf pattern from Whole Grain Baby? The website says that a pattern would be emailed within 24 hours but I ordered on 10 January. I have sent a couple of emails but not sure what to do next.

Last week of holidays next week. Books, uniforms, shoes bought, haircuts booked and a couple of days of holiday program booked for Callum and Kane to get everything organised ... and a few days without brothers for Ayden to finish off his holiday homework. Now, I just have to track down the two different styles of school socks that the boys would like..

Those scrap blocks are coming along so beautifully Rachel! Of course you do have a wonderful scrap bucket. Isn't it astounding that there is only one week of holidays left? And are you like me and hanging out for our retreat in May already?

Those blocks are fabulous.
You are so much more organised than I am for school.

WGB have been having problems and is a pain. I know Nic ordered a pdf at the same time as you and got hers right away. As far as I can tell you are the only one who is having trouble on that pattern. Everyone else is waiting on the halter dress which was meant to be pre-release purchase Nov 18th 2009.

I emailed WGB the link to that forum conversation that Cass posted but that has not helped speed things up either.

Hope you get your pattern very soon.
