Pooh Quilt Squares are done

Here's the first four I completed. A pooh, two eeyore (my personal fave) and a very happy piglett.
And here's the last four with the chartiy logo square. We have pooh with his honey jar, two tiggers and a piglett. I sent them

I've been very busy with work, trying to get some charity events in and about two weeks ago I threw my back out of wack. Just getting it back on easy terms with it at the moment. And I havent had the urge to use the computer that much. Thinking of you all. Hopefully when things slow down a bit I can go back to visiting some of your blogs.

As you can see I've been very dilagent in stitching out the squares for this quilt. I'll be taking a break from the charity squares for the next two weeks and work on a few other things I have yelling at me from the to do pile.

Went to Crescent Beach the other day with a friend of mine and his son. We had fun though the surf was rough and a bit strong. I gave up playing in the waves when one threw me down into the water and the next wave wouldn't let me up. But it wasn't too hot and the breeze was mild and slightly warm though after being soaked it seemed a bit cool as well. The seagulls were in full form. We had one big bully guarding the area where we had placed our blanket. Kept chasing off the other birds. I even saw my first Black-backed gull, and I think some of the gulls might have been terns but I haven't checked any sites yet to know for sure or not.

Hi Amanda! How nice to have some news!
I'm sorry about your back! I have problems with mine very often, and sometimes, this can really succeed in making the days awful...
Daphné (my Almost 6-year-old DD) loves your quilts, and she's begging at me for Piglets (her fav...). As ever, your OECS squares are bound to bring a smile on every face.
I have read your Crescent Beach story with great interest, thanks for sharing!
Oh! And you are my saver! I have found the bin thanks to you!!!
I hope things calm down a little for you soon, and that you can stitch a little for yourself...
Lots of hugs, dear Amanda!
