FNWF for April

Last night I joined my on line bloggy friends for
hosted by Cheryll over at Gone Stitching.
As I am a bit boring at the moment and still working on some secret stitching I worked on one of those during the afternoon...
and worked on my latest Splendid Sampler block in the evening. I was very happy to see a simple applique design pop up...it is lovely in it's simplicity. The designer is Janet Clare. I am also really enjoying reading each and every inspiration for the blocks by their designers that accompany their designs.
I cannot believe that I really wanted to make one of the bonus blocks....which was pieced! I know! Surprised myself but I liked it so much...and it IS the right size and the seams meet pretty well...happy dance!
After receiving the next month's colour in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I was unsure
with what I could possibly use. I guess that's why it's called a challenge lol! The colour for April is orange with black or brown accents. Inspiration being the gorgeous Monarch butterfly. As the challenge is to only use your stash, this morning I went searching....and found these little pretties. I like my eventual choice and as it was as close as I could get, I have gone with it. Challenge met! Yay!
All basted and prepped and waiting for a quiet moment to sew it together.
I am off back to my secret sewing.....keeping Mr. R.  company as he watches his beloved V8 racing. Two happy little Vegemites.
Thank you Cheryll for hosting us again. I will be visiting to see what you all got up to!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  16. Love your applique. I do not recall seeing that bonus SS block, I wonder why? Love the birds. Gee, I am awed by your ability to keep up with each block. Unfortunately, I sewed a bit today then got sidetracked cleaning up the sewing room so I didn't trip over LOL.
