We’re back to situation normal this month, and three hatbox blocks.
As you read this, the Husband and I will be tootling along the Queensland back roads towing Miz Lizzie behind us, on our long holiday journey south.

Click through to her blog to have a look at hers, they’re all gorgeous, being made from Liberty fabrics. She’s in a later timezone than I am, so maybe wait a little before you go over there to give her time to get her post up.
