Seeking some information on......

Dia Duit, today DH went to a swap meet to purchase some car bits.As I do a lot of the driving now, we were up at the crack of dawn ,some two hours travelling to Berwick Swap Meet.As I dawdled behind I came across the Kan Wondamixer, walked pass the stall,then back tracked.When I do the baking I always mix by hand and no packet mixes for me,always start from scratch.I have been baking for so long the family favourite recipes are stored in my memory bank. It needed a good clean.God Bless DH, as  I had strayed from him, he walked up behind me and said to the stallholder will you take thirty bucks the answer was yes.I was stoked.So, lassies would any one out there have some info on this little gem or know of an instruction booklet. I would love to know something about the wondamixer .

Double Take on Block 1 Westering Women

Dia Duit, I was unhappy with the first block I made, so started again and made a 12 inch block.It was
much easier with the larger pieces and I am much happier with the result.Over the years I have avoided using black fabrics in my quilts, however I think the piece I have used sits well in the block.Slan, O'faigh
