Don't you just love it.....

.... when a flower suddenly appears ..... look what decided to bloom in my fernery...


this is my Treasure this Tuesday


It lives in a pot so it has come indoors to brighten the room

Melody is hosting Treasure Tuesday - I'm off to have a look to see what others are showing today

I am waiting patiently for the latest Homespun
there is this lovely design in it I'd like to try



It's going to be a web-bonus project so you don't really have to have the magazine

Michelle is a new blogger and a new designer so pop along and say Hi

PS - I just won a give-away there but she is having another .....


Thanks so much for the comments regarding The Aussie Spirit quilt on THIS post - I very much appreciate everyone's input
The most popular was the single borders (followed closely by the double borders) so that is what I will be doing


There are still some blocks to come - including one of the Australian states but I will be able to start preparing fabric and placing some borders

Hoping you have a wonderful week

I love your flower. Orchids are quite amazing. Yours even has ruffled edges on the petals. I keep visiting the homespun site waiting for that pattern to go up and I got my prize and a gift from Michelle today :)
