Three Little Maids

Good morning one and all!
I say this every day just now ... sunshine and blue skies.  Let's hope it lasts over the weekend.

I saw this image on a challenge blog the other day and I just HAD to have it!  I've paper pieced it using the fabulous new collection from Pink Petticoat.  

My daughter and I are meeting my cousin and her daughter for lunch today so I'd better get a wriggle on as I've still to have my shower.

Hope you are all well.

PS - How very remiss of me, a senior moment I fear!  The little white dot problem has been solved by one of my lovely followers.  Debbie very kindly offered to send me the dots she had left after completing the project I'm about to begin, organising promarkers.  Thank you Debbie.  It never ceases to amaze me how generous our cyber friends are.  Thanks also to Beryl and Jules who suggested punching them out of bigger labels, I had thought of that but that was a last resort, too much like hard work!!!  Hugs x

sorry for the wonky picture, all is straight in real life!
