I am making Progress Baltimore Style

Good Morning all!
Little friend I encountered on a walk at Springbrook Queenland sometime ago.
It is such a beautiful morning here. Lovely blue skies, sun shining and light cool breeze. Perfect!
I am so pleased to say I have finished block 5 of my Baltimore.
And now I am working on block 6 and if I allow myself some excitement that will mean after this block I am half way there.....worth focusing on I think. I am glad I chose this block next because it looks simple enough
but has lots of little pieces and if I had done it later it may have done me in. I am however enjoying stitching them and it has gone a long way reminding me just how much I love needleturn applique.
There is one of these rose & ribbon groups in each corner. It will be pretty when it's done. 

Seeing as how I was a very good little 'domestic goddess' this morning and took all my cranberry & white china off my dresser along with lots of other china that lives here and washed it all and put it back all sparkly  and new I am going to now take myself off to my chair and do a little more on the rose & ribbon block with a nice cuppa and a Tim Tam of course...they are so great for the creative juices (my story and I am sticking to it)
Wishing you a wonderful day,
Blessings Michelle xx
