This month I used up a UFO Christmas block to make some items.

We used a number of different techniques. At the bottom of the front panel we used 15% shrinky. We used the Flip La K twisted hearts template to make the hearts on the front.

I also joined with FNwF, organised by Cheryll. You can visit here to check out what all the lovely participants worked on this month. It always gives lots of inspiration to see the beautiful work. Thank you Cheryll for organising us to stitch together again this month.
2 groups of lovely stitchers. That made for a big party. Susan had macarons to eat. She posted a photo of hers and I felt just a little jealous. You see, I just had a plain old packet biscuit. Hmm. Better lift my game for next month. Or I need to go join Susan maybe. lol.
During the day my friend and I had got together to prepare the next appliques for our Rachels Flower Garden wall hanging. Usually we manage to prepare 2 blocks in the day. However we took a little road trip to purchase our kits from Faeries in My Garden. This is the full panel from the kit. Each flower piece is cut and used in one of the 13 projects.
We didn't get our quota finished this time. Admittedly the delphinium one has soooooo many little pieces to trace and cut.
Last night I fused the tulips to the background, and started the delphiniums, but they are still being assembled on the baking paper. I have to cut lots of little black stars for the flower centres and that was a bit hard to do with the lack of good light. Maybe today I will get more done.

Cheryll to link up and join in. It will be a lot of stitchy fun. Thank you Cheryll.
So many beautiful things have come to stay with me lately, and I am a bit late posting about some of them. I have birthday gifts, just because gifts, and yummy purchases.
I was very surprised and thrilled to receive this thoughtful little parcel from Joy.
Today we visited Faeries in My Garden and came home with this lovely kit, Sophie's Sewing Set.
Yesterday was Cross Country day for Kai and Charlie.

Got to love having our Grandies around to help out around the place.
These Grandies were not going to miss out on the opportunity to help blow out the candles on my cake. They were very enthusiastic.
But my daughter and I slipped out yesterday to have a quiet celebration on our own – she treated me to High Tea.
lime mint julep and rose mint julep. Yum. So refreshing. Yummy goodies to eat as well..
