Monogram Mondays ~B~...

It's Monday again, and to cheer you up I am sharing B in Monogram Mondays this week!
Now how can a B cheer you? 
Because it's the first letter in...
 ...and all things beautiful make me smile.
Like today for example, I had a few hours sewing time with three 'B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l' friends.
Michelle, Angela, Wendy and I had our very first sewing day for the year, and it was so much fun.
We don't have a name for our group, but I was thinking the "Four Mad Maids" because it describes us pretty well. 
For Christmas Wendy gave me this set of gorgeous spotty Cath Kidston mugs, and I have waited for this sewing day to finally christen them.
Four mugs for four mad maids... ;-)
In between stitching we had cappuccinos, a variety of teas, sandwiches, choc brownies (thanks Angela!) plus fruit and cheese.
Simple and sweet.
 Thanks for a great day, girls! xx


Here is your letter for this week, B...

Each week I will add another letter to the Sampler template for you to trace. I know we had some problems last week, but I think this template will work for everyone.
Angela noticed that my original and the pdf I shared last week were slightly different in size, so please trace this week's template, and from now on they should all be the same proportion.

Download the B template HERE.
Please make sure you have ticked the box 'Actual Size' in your printer screen before you print.


Block 2 of my Daisy Days BOM is finished! I hope you are being patient as I won't have this quilt pattern finished until after Easter, but it sure is cute!

Today I started the re-stitching of my beautiful "Romeo Roses". The colours this time are perfect...
 What do you think?

Have a beautiful week, won't you? Oh, and if you're after a simple but beautiful Valentines Day gift to make, head on over to the blog of my beautiful friend, Vikki!
Visit her HERE.
Till next time...

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
