This week, my computer died on me. I was not too frustrated, because I have been storing my pictures and embroidery files on an external hard drive. And the laptop was a 'hand-me-down' from my husband. But as we all know, it takes time to figure out what you are even looking for... in features and spec's, and then it takes time to go to the stores and actually look at them and try to type on them! Then it takes time to get everything running on it at home. So I didn't get much sewing time in this week.
But....I did squeeze in some time to sew a Dr. Who Tardis block, for my daughter. She is a big Dr. Who fan ( on BBC tv ), and got my husband and I watching it . We enjoy it's quirkiness.

The Tardis pattern, designed by Caroline of Trillium Design, is the first block in the Dr Who Along! The Dr Who Along is being hosted at Whims and Fancies. Soma, Whims and Fanices blog, has some awesome paper pieced patterns and really fun sew alongs! Check out her blog and Craftsy shop.

I made it into a mini wall hanging,and mailed it to her. She has it hanging above her desk now.

Another block that I made this month, is the May block in the And Sew On BoM.

I decided to make my iron pink . I have always thought that would make ironing more fun!
