Dusted off the sewing machines

Hello! Hope you are enjoying Easter Monday!
We've been out and about today so not much crafty time.  Sarah was keen to do some sewing when we got back so we dusted off the sewing machines (as it's been ages) and we found a pattern for a 6x6 block called Friends Around the Square by Julie Karasek at the Splendid Sampler.
So we both decided to try it.. we are very much beginners and need to follow patterns very carefully. 
Here's my first attempt, it's far from perfect but it was fun!
Not sure what to do with it now.  Maybe a mug rug.. although it was really only for practice (of which, more is needed!)
Might do some crafting later as I had a couple of new batches of goodies arrive..  some Clearly Besotted Stamps and the other Kim Dellow set.. (which I just HAD to have!!) 
And, I do have some birthday cards to make.. April is a busy month!
