Splendid Sampler

I am almost up to date with my blocks for Splendid Sampler. These latest 4 are completed now.
I made a bit of a pigs ear of the tape measure one but it's done finally.
I really enjoyed Vicki Tucek's block....embroidery,  now there's a surprise lol! It is a beautiful design.
The next block is lovely too....but another paper pieced block. So I need to gather courage to attempt it...which I will but until I do I am taking refuge in Blessings..ahhh!
Oh how a little needleturn soothes the nerves.
Off to the garden now or what's left of it. We are dismantling one I had purposely let go to accommodate our new wheels. Lots of heaving dead things into the ute etc. And Mr. R. wielding his trusty chain saw. It will be nice when its all done and I can make a smaller one behind the new slab.
Have a lovely day.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
