FNWF and extras

Last night was March's turn for
Lovely Cheryll over at Gone Stitching gathered us altogether. I decided to work on a pretty little stitchery that I need for next month....I enjoyed quietly stitching away whilst Mr R. and I caught up on some favourite shows.
I needed some 'quiet' stitching after working very diligently on Block 6 of TSS. I think I may be improving as it actually worked out the correct size....nobody was more surprised than moi!
I am really liking how the blocks look together....however Block 5 is too small so I am going to unpick and try again....wish me luck! Our latest block was designed by Natalia Bonner. Thank you.
I so love my little Dresden papers, I just have to have a couple on the go.
I am asking you all out there if you have in your stash a fat quarter somewhere of the following fabric....I believe that it's called Sticks and Stones Dogwood dark tan colourway by Laundry Basket Quilts.....I just need a little....
 There is a beige but I  really need the darker one.
Happy stitching. Enjoy your weekend.
A little thought from yours truly....
"Beautiful fresh energy cannot enter a locked closed up room.....you must throw open the windows and doors to release the old and stale and usher in the new. So release the old and stale that no longer serves you and allow room for the fresh and beautiful. You never know what kind of wonderful is knocking on your door just waiting for you to open it"

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. Love those previous words. Feng Shui for the soul. So sorry I do not have that fabric and I hope someone can help. Love your cupcake and the lTest SS block. I have made a big boo boo...I cut my 2nd and 3rd blocks back to 6" x 6". I read that it was the finished size at the top of the pattern instead of reading the directions at the end of the instructions grrrrr. Looks like I am remaking them.
