A pretty flimsy....

My bluebirds blocks have made it into a flimsy this week


... just delightful little stitcheries .... they are in months with Australian celebrations so we have:-

Australia Day (January)
Valentines Day (Feb)
Easter (March) though it is often in April
Anzac Day - April
Mothers Day - May
Queens Birthday - June 
Winter - July
Friendship Day - August (to be honest I didn't know about this one!)
Wattle Day - September
Halloween - October
Melbourne Cup - November
Christmas - December

I am thinking about how to do the quilting... I don't want to stitch over the embroidered parts .....

(designed by Christine)

I stitched up the little extra bluebird pattern for a label

  
.... meanwhile my dog made a good subject for a bit of fun ....


.... Righto, Gotto Go....  have a lovely rest of the week...

    We really need to convince Christine to release the patterns for us to purchase. I have loved this with it's Australian seasons since I saw the beginning of the stitcheries.

    Well done.
