My Favourite Things......

I do love scented flowers though I was a bit surprised that these had already opened


I think they are narcissus? so sweet
doesn't my pretty little coaster from Shez look perfect for them?

It has been such fun being part of an online StitchALong ..... this one started at the end of last year and Chookyblue has set parts to be done each month......

These are the blocks for July .....



I have got a little bit ahead and done my blocks for August  ....


and put them all together


This is my new favourite place for photographing quilt tops - I love the stained glass window effect and if you look closely you can see all my loose threads at the back too!!

there is so much to look at on this quilt.... such a lot of fun

it is so like me too... I have so many favourite things (including a wooden chair)


The rest of the StitchALong ladies are so encouraging
it's a great way to make a quilt

Righto, Gotto Go, .... I'm stitching butterflies...


I do hope you all  have an awesome weekend ... whatever you get to do
