splendid sampler update


block 49 Summers Gift

block 50!!!!!
Flights of Fancy
07/08/2016

and ta da!!!!
all 50 blocks plus 2 that I redid (on the right hand side)
and the two rows on the bottom are all of the bonus blocks I've done so far..
still Derby Day and the Easter one to to,
plus the butterflies from one of the designers...
and I want to redo block 47 in a more scrappy version,
as I think it will look great!
Need to find somewhere else to take photos,
as it has got too big for the floor of the sewing room.

oops forgot to show this one the other day when I finished it...
sewing nut by Frances Newcombe
not too sure he looks like a squirrel...

cute anyway!

Claytons Christmas swap

this is what was inside that lovely parcel I received last week from Jan
those cute little buttons will come in handy...
love the FQ, might have a bit of a plan for that one too...
and the sweet little stocking is hanging on my noticeboard where I can see it every day and wish it was Christmas!






Sent from my SAMSUNG Galaxy S7 on the Telstra Mobile Network

finally redone this one

this was the original way I had done block 35
I called it Peaceful Pathways as the fabric was so busy,
and didn't bother with the embroidery as I felt it would overwhelm the block..
so today I finally got around to redoing it,
the block had been made for quite a while,
I just didn't have time to do the embroidery,
so today was the day!
and this is how it looks.
love both blocks and need to decide which I will use????
maybe both?
