Terri, hope you have fun camping solo. What a great time to clear one's head!

Here once again are the free online sites for block making. Remember to make them 12.5", no bigger or smaller. Get ready to rock and roll!

Love Donald Duck - always looked at him as the underdog to Mickey and friends. We got the entire DVD set from when he first started and all I can say is wow - did you know they created him because they didn't want Mickey doing anything wrong?? So here comes DD - stealing, cursing, defrauding, etc. Amazing when you look back at it. The teen grands loved it.

Love the vintage feel of the DD fabric and the blue background fits great with it. Kudos & Hugs!

Ain't that the truth. You really have to look at the fabric together with the other fabrics that you pull from your stash, to get the inspiration with the note. That's what I enjoy too! Hugs!!

That is hilarious! Yeah, DD is just generally bad tempered, in contrast to Mickey's sweet temperament.

The fabric is supposed to be posters or postcards of the old cartoons, so circa 1940 or so. I think I may have the Mickey version of that fabric around here somewhere, too.

Lstew great Dino block, Colors go perfect together

Sewbiz love your block. Fabric is so fun

Enjoyed my day and night of solo camping. Next time I would go for several days, lots to pack and unpack for 1 day. Had a lovely time, even managed to get a nice fire going. Was spooked a couple of times when I heard weird noises while sitting by the fire but slept well and back at home.
