2016 Free Boms

Monday, February 6, 2012

I was stitching on Sunday...

...and I made my first dresden plate block for Anne's Scrappy Plate Club.  You can check out the Flickr stream here.  I'm making my plates from the fabulous fabrics I received for my birthday from my sweet bloggy friends and swap partners.

... and I finally finished Block 1 of Raining Cats and Dogs, a fabulous BOM from Anne Sutton of BunnyHill.  I'm buying mine from the Fat Quarter Shop.

I put together a little parcel of a mug rug, a scissor fob and a lavender bag for one of my bloggy friends, Sandra, who is ill at the moment.  Wishing you a complete and speedy recovery, Sandra.
Here's a couple more of the wonderful birthday gifts I received.
This bundle of gorgeous treats came from Bev at Kainga Happenings.  Oh how I love anything vintage.
and this one from Pat at Club Quilt Narromine.  The sweet soap and divine coloured washer are just perfect.

Spoilt, lucky me and there's more to show tomorrow.

I've just found Jolene's fabulous blog, Blue Elephant Stitches and I love it.
She's got a great tutorial for this Granny Squares quilt block.


This one is new to me too. Teresa's FABRIC THERAPY is brilliant.  She's got a great tutorial entitled Strippy, strappy, flippy , happy, happy Happy and if you follow the instructions you will end up with these fabulous blocks.

If  you pop over to Val's lovely blog you can enter her fabulous giveaway .

See you tomorrow for Tuesday Treasures and don't forget to enter my birthday giveaway too.  Check out the post on Feb 3rd.
