Getting ready

to stitch the first two blocks in this great BOM called Quilty Stitches and very kindly shared at Little Miss Shabby
When I was at fabulous Crafty Hijinks there was a wonderful area where you could drop off and pick up unwanted craft items.  I found a beautiful piece of linen.  Ballarat Patchwork (which very sadly is now closed) had a stall and I bought this gorgeous bundle of  Cosmo threads for 40% off.
So now I have the materials and the patterns - so what is stopping me? Nothing, I plan to start stitching tonight.

I'm feeling very positive after my tests.  I now have a new doctor to add to my medical team and she is a truly inspiring and wonderful young women.  She is very much on the ball re new treatments and has offered me much hope. That's enough about my health, I feel ready to sew, sew, sew.
As many of you know I just can't resist CUTE and this one is very very cute.
I was really happy when I found this LINK to Pimp Stitch.  Many thanks.
Have a wonderful day
PS If you pop over to my lovely friend Christine's blog you can see her finished versions of the first two blocks and her new daughters too. LOL
