We had sunshine today and it was wonderful to hang the sheets and towels outside again. Everything dried quickly and then just as I was walking back inside with the folded washing in my basket down came the next big shower. Perfectly timed, thank you Lord!
Today Blossom and the little ones came to visit as everyone is well again and after two weeks stuck inside due to head colds and the endless rain the girls were more than excited to come play in the cubby and collect eggs from our chickens.
Charlie David is 5 weeks old now and such a calm relaxed baby. I had lots of cuddles as he pretty much sleeps most of the time, especially snuggled in loving arms.
Cully May and Rafaella always have cups of tea with Bloss and I but up until now I've served them in melamine tea cups. Today I thought they may just be old enough to begin using my pretty Cath Kidston china mini-cups...
The girls were thrilled and drank their tea like proper little ladies. In fact they thought it so wonderful that they asked for more after quickly finishing their first cup full. They also polished off quite a few scones and two cupcakes each. I did serve grapes as well...which Rafaella was very happy about as she's a true fruit-lover.
It's amazing how a visit with loved ones can shine extra joy over the day. My heart goes out to all of you who because of Covid have been separated for great lengths of time from your loved ones. ((hugs)) Blossom and I pray that you will be reunited very soon. xx
Last year I shared an embroidered Psalm 23 fabric book as my free block of the month and at the time said that the patterns would be removed on December 31st. Well, I have decided to leave them HERE for you to access until January 31st just in case you missed one or two along the way. Or perhaps you never saw them as you are new here?
Recently a couple of lovely ladies sent me beautiful photos of their completed Psalm 23 books and I am very excited to show you today because they have added their own unique touch and this always helps to imagine a project in different colourways and fabrics.
...and from Eveline.
This year's free block of the month is the Posies wall quilt and back in late December I shared a free bonus pattern for a Posies pincushion (here).
Block 1 was shared on January 1st (here) and another new block will be shared each month through 2021.
The other day Joanne sent me photos of her completed Posies pincushion as well as block 1. She chose to fussy cut her applique tea cup with a snip from Tilda's little birds...lovely.
Thanks ladies, it was so nice to see my designs remade by your nimble stitching fingers!
I'll be back on Friday to announce something new, something I've spent a lot of time on and am really excited about...but no more hints.
Bless you heaps,
