Progress and 6 is a Big Number

I have really loved stitching the latest Splendid Sampler block designed by Jenny-of-Elefantz....sweet, sweet stitchery!
I was wondering now that we are past 30 blocks what they looked like together.
Must say that I am loving them...the touch of French General blue is coming through nicely....seeing as my challenge is to only use my French General stash I am really hoping that the blues hold out.
When June comes a calling it means a great big Happy Birthday to my youngest Grandson Cooper....big no.6! He is our little naturalist and fellow pencil wielder.
So pizza and cake features later in my day! Lots of love and Happy Birthday Coops xx
June also brings my dear Grandmother closer to me and strange as it sounds pink carnations,  her favourites always cross my path.....these did just that yesterday.
Aren't they lovely.
It's pretty dreary here today and rain is forecast for the weekend.....I am  hoping to pop by and join all the fun over at Chookyblues for her 4th birthday celebration for her creative Chookshed.
You can drop by to to check out the highjinks.
Enjoy your weekend.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
