Block 4

Its been awhile since I showed any sneak peaks of the new BOM so I thought Id share some from Block 4 (just so you know Im still working on it lol). Im currently working on Block 6, so I promise to catch you up!!!

The Ladybird (or Ladybug) block and a section of the "Right Hand of Friendship" Star.

There can even be beauty in the common old Garden Snail!!!

I really enjoyed appliquing this Four Leaf Clover block!!! Alas I still use the old freezer paper method but Im happier with the points and the curves!!

I also want to share a special gift I received in the mail yesterday:

This gorgeous parcel came from Julie. I sent her a copy of my Summer Garden Tablerunner pattern and as a "thank you" (which was unexpected) she sent me this and I just looooooooooooooove it!!! The fabrics are devine and I already have plans!!! picturing a bag, the cottons will make a great stitchery and the little Quilters clip can be stitched inside to hold my scissors!!!!

Thank you sooooooooo much Julie!!! You made me feel so special!!!


  1. Ohhh, so pretty. I love the ladybird! And the fabric; gorgeous! You have been busy :0)

  2. Hi Rose, Looking forward to seeing the end product. I have some of this lovely fabric. Perhaps I have a use for it now? When will your BOM be ready for us eager beavers to start?? Cathyx
