Check...check!

This was one of those weekends where I was on fire (figuratively speaking!)...lots achieved...I can go back to work knowing that a few jobs were ticked off my to do list at last.
Lawns mowed...check!
Weeds sprayed...check!
Washing done...check!
Dogs coats washed & mended...check...check!
Assignment started...check!
Discussion board participated in...check...check!
Mothers Day present organised...check!
Thank goodness there was time left for a little stitch! These blocks are for my Confetti Cake quilt, inspired by one I saw a while ago on Sherri's blog. I cut it out early this year, you may remember that I had a bit of a cutting disaster- remember it is unwise to cut out when you have no sleep in the wee hours of the morning due to a post op hubby! But it is looking good...quite quick once it is cut out correctly!
Also I have been slowly plodding away on my TTS stitchalong blocks...I have assembled three more blocks ready for tracing...I can hear a whip cracking...hmmm!
I was a Royal wedding tragic too...loved the dress...aaah...young love...how nice!

On fire alright - did you remember to sleep!? Love the Confetti blocks, and your TTS is going great too. Wasn't the wedding fabulous, I've watched my favourite bits over and over again. How tragic is that? LOL

Your Brocante is great (previous post)! I was wondering if you know where to get a Confetti pattern? I just love yours and all the links I found online were no longer working. I think that's just darling.
