This weeks stitching

This week I'll be stitching this block from Rosalie Dekker's fabulous Flowerville.  
This is Rosie's completed Flowerville quilt.  I'm making mine with 1930s reproduction fabrics and a Cottage Gardens thread called Tulip.
I'm stitching my fourth block and there are nine stitcheries needed.  And I've only made one dresden plate so far. So I've still got lots to do.
My aim is to finish this quilt, including the quilting, before 2016 ends. 

Today I returned to The Quilt Shop and the Monday afternoon friendship group for the first time in 2016.  It was lovely to be back and see Sharon and Alison again, they are both really lovely...
...and their shop is beautiful.

Another beautiful mini which would make a delightful St Valentine's Day gift.  It is very kindly shared by lovely Laura at Kittens and Threads which is a delightful blog to visit.  Just follow this LINK and many many thanks to Laura for sharing this lovely pattern with us.

Hope you have time for some stitching today.
