My birthday started at the beginning of August and seems to be lasting all month :) How wonderful is that!! I haven’t got any younger though ;)
Saturday’s lunchtime post brought me this wonderful surprise from my new online friend Katrin in Germany. She sent me this fabulous Tilda Bee and the bunny fabric… Aren’t they just the cutest! I too have the book with this pattern in and the bee is one of my favourites. THANK YOU SO MUCH Katrin! I will treasure this little bee and bunny fabric.
This past few days I’ve knuckled down and re sewed the first block from Lynette Anderson’s My Garden BOM. I finished it yesterday morning. Today, I received notice that the third one is to be here soon :) I can’t wait!!
Last but not least I finally plucked up the courage to piece together the random strips I received for the Leanne’s House BOM. When I first opened the package and saw the strips I thought “What were the girls at the QS thinking” LOL… Oh me of little faith!! So I set it aside for a week while I thought about it. Then Friday I thought I must tackle this block before the next package comes in and decided to have a little faith. However, I did add a couple of fabrics. The pale pink, sand and dusky pink polka dot and the tan coloured print. I was going to change out the dark green dot as I thought it looked too dark but when I put in a lighter one it just didn’t do anything. So I decided to stick with the darker one and I love the look now. The picture doesn’t do the fabric justice it is very oldie worldy romantic!! Now to do the stitchery. I hope I don’t mess it up!
Today I worked on some Clamshells… stitching them together ;) The end of the month is not far off!!
Lastly here is a picture of the Geranium Psilostemon that I have growing in my garden :)
Until later! Happy Stitching! Ellyx
