Are you Stitching tonight?


This is the completed 5th block of Butterfly Garden

Every block is just as much fun as the one before


 .... some of the close ups.....






... and here they are all together so far ......


.... these are lovely to sit and stitch of an evening....


This Friday (9th December) is FNSI.... and there's going to be another on the 16th

Handmade by Heidi


I'll be getting on with Butterfly Garden Block 6 and I have a quilt to quilt

wanna come stitch with us? I see there are 126 stitchers so far

and here down under we are so lucky because we can stitch our Friday night (tonight) and the USA Friday night (tommorrow) - I think that is why they call this the lucky country?

Your butterfly quilt is stunning. I love to have something to stitch of an evening at the moment it is my Vignette in stitches.

I am now that you've kindly reminded me! Number 139 joining in tonight. lol

Your Butterfly Garden is beautiful, I feel so ashamed that I haven't stitched even one miniblock in the time that you've done over half the quilt. Yours is very inspiring though, so you never know what I might drag out tonight now! I like your thinking on the advantages of living Down Under. LOL
