I should have taken a before photo..

But here's the after
My ribbons and trims box has been sorted! This was overflowing and all tangled and then Meg decided she was going to organize it for me, she has a thing for ribbons so I think there may be an ulterior motive here! lol

Free BOM Block 2

I know I called this  Our Backyard but as I started drawing I really couldn't get away from the birds, maybe because the king parrots are eating my nectarines and the crimson rosellas are demolishing the tomatoes, but these little fellas are really cute and besides a great twittering they don't eat any thing they shouldn't.
This block is a finished size 11" x 5" and I have stitched mine in 2 strands of Cottage Garden embroidery thread in cobblestone.
As you can see it hasn't even been pressed yet, and here's the king parrot, maybe he'll get stitched next!

running late....

I know I'm a few days late with the next stitchery, just finishing the last few details and trying to get another pattern finished before the end of the week, so watch this space it will happen soon....
In the meantime Sharon from Avonleigh Country Quilting in Albury sent me some photos of the sample she has made from our pattern Little Traveller.

Doesn't it look fantastic in yellow, I really love the diagonal stripe on the pockets. Sharon is running a sewing circle for this pattern so if you are around the Albury area drop in and have a look. Now back to stitching.....
