Bitsa this and bitsa that.....

Some more of my Splendid Sampler blocks ......



I haven't got them all in here but this is the first 30 I have done....  I quite like the general look these colours are giving....



I have finished the stitching on this sweet little heart from Michelle's book - this will be made into a door hanger for Christmastime .....


Another OMG (Organic Modern Graphic) piece.....


part of me likes that crazy binding with it... part of me doesn't.... but there it is

If anyone is interested in seeing these quilts and even join in the fun this is the Facebook page.  Helen Godden gives us a picture each month which serves as our inspiration for making up a quilt.

We were given these funny little plants that don't need soil - just air and a spray of water .... I have placed them in the little glass bubbles (my daughter left these behind when she moved out - you snooze you loose I say).  They are rather fun and cheer up a spot in the kitchen (the place I most need cheering up!)


Righto, Gotto Go... those little plants probably want a bit of a spray today...
