"Bouquet" and "Dresden" and more Blogsurfing......

There seems to be no end to the creativity shared on our blogs......... so much inspiration and talent.........

This week Peg's Angel Story blocks were being finished - go have a look - they are 'angelic'.... I love the colours she has used.

Michele Made Me has given a tutorial for home made covered buttons with great results. Good thinking Michelle........ I think making these could become addictive....... You can find this tutorial HERE.

Kaaren at The Painted Quilt is starting a Raggedy and Friends BOM in a week's time - this is from her first full size quilt design and she is sharing it with us!! Thanks Kaaren, I am looking forward to that..... P.S. Kaaren also has some cute stitcheries she shares on First Friday Freebies.... just look for the button on her sidebar.........

If you like bugs you will like the little Bitty Bug pincushion designed by Goody Goody ...... I have mine cut out waiting to get stitched................ I think I might end up with a family of them round my house...........

Another family I would love round my house are Theresa's little Gingerbread men decorations - they are so adorable.......... she also has just finished put the top together for her amazing Girls Day Out Quilt . Go have a look.............

And I loved the presentation of the fat quarters that Fee from  Mothers Cupboard made ...... Who doesn't like cupcakes (???) and especially these one don't put anything on the thigh's! Fee has just done her first craft fair using these little beauties.......... I would  have definitely bought a few if I'd been there........ scrumptious...

There are lots more to write about - I'll keep some for next time but these will, I'm sure act as a appetisers for your crafting this week...............

Well, in spite of a little glitch with my email this week ........ I did manage to start another page on my blog - can you see the tab on my page for recipes..... these will be some of my favourites which are almost always quick and easy and relatively fail proof. I love good food but I also love to have time for other things........

Earlier this year Jenny shared a 'Bouquet' BOM with us - I have finally managed to finish the stitching and put borders on the blocks.........  She has the BOM on her Etsy store now - over HERE.  (By the way there's a sale on there!!)

This is the corner block (there are 4 of them)


This is the centre block.......... with Jenny's lovely rose poem.........


Here we have the chair - there is still a shabby rose to add on the seat (once the quilting is done!)


This is the girl with the pearls in her hair...............


and a bucket of roses.................


and the jug (also to be finished off with a bow after quilting)


The plan is to put all the blocks together this week............

Meanwhile Jenny is running a July Little Bird challenge - she provides a cute little stitchery and we make it into whatever we want........ this is my stitchery - I just can't decide what to make it into......... any ideas for me????? (can you tell I watched Alice in  Wonderland this week?)


Something new - I have never made a Dresden plate before.......... off on a blogsurf for some help.  Stephanie at Loft Creations has a tutorial HERE - I don't have the ruler, or a 'purple thang' but the guidelines for the points are great - this is my first Dresden............... (made out of some scraps)


I think I'm in love..................
