splendid sampler update


block 49 Summers Gift

block 50!!!!!
Flights of Fancy
07/08/2016

and ta da!!!!
all 50 blocks plus 2 that I redid (on the right hand side)
and the two rows on the bottom are all of the bonus blocks I've done so far..
still Derby Day and the Easter one to to,
plus the butterflies from one of the designers...
and I want to redo block 47 in a more scrappy version,
as I think it will look great!
Need to find somewhere else to take photos,
as it has got too big for the floor of the sewing room.

sewing nut by Frances Newcombe

cute anyway!

a gorgeous deep pinky/burgundy snowflake fq,
one of my little angles,
a cute Theodore Cleave button
