Henry has come to stay for a while so there will just be Fabulous Free Things links for the next few days.

Pretty little flowers are blooming over at Podunk Pretties.
Lea Anne very generously shares how to make them HERE in a very detailed tutorial.  Thank you so much Lea Anne.
Have a wonderful day

Tuesday's Treasured Blogs




I've decided to add another element to my blog.  A chance to share your favourite blogs every Tuesday.  So whether you have an old favourite or you have just found a wonderful place to visit, please share the happiness around by writing a little post about a blog you love to visit and linking in to Mr Linky.

I recently discovered Yvestown.
Yvonne Eijkenduijn blogs about craft and crochet, cooking and baking, her house and garden and I love every post.  She is a woman with style and exquisite taste and a quirky sense of fun too.
Her photos are amazing.
And her recipes, wow wow wow, everything looks delicious.

I am a huge fan and I'm sure you will be too if you pay her a visit HERE.

Now it's your turn to share a favourite blog

Of course it had to be a link to a wonderful Yvestown project today.  And while you are reading this I'll be at my crochet class with lovely Bev so I thought a crochet project was most appropriate.

Just go HERE if you would like to make these gorgeous granny squares. Enormous thanks to Yvonne.
Have a wonderful day

Tilda Club

On Thursday I picked up my latest bundle of Tilda Club goodies from Gail B's.
I love this month's project and so last night I began the little stitchery  The completed project will be going in the Christmas bundle I'm making for the Friends Having Fun Swap.


I stitched away whilst watching The English Patient. 
I haven't seen this movie for over 15 years and yet I remember very vividly the scene where Kip hoists Hana to the ceiling of the church and she swings around lighting up the frescos. 
Would it stand the test of time?  Yes it did - it was just as magical and beautiful as I remembered. The cinematography in the movie almost took my breath away.

It just has to be a Tilda project today and aren't we lucky because The Spring Lake quilt is a free pattern very kindly shared HERE at Tilda's World.
Hope your day is filled with happiness

Hexies going out

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm a member of the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap.  As well as receiving lovely hexie flowers from all over the world, I've been making some too.  


These are headed interstate and to the USA.


I followed a trail from Pinterest to Vixen Made
from Vixen Made to Made by Rae
where there is a wonderful tutorial for these Dragon Slippers.  Just follow this LINK and the little ones in your life can have cosy little toes.  Many many thanks to Rae.
Hope your day is filled with happiness

Hexies coming in

I'm a member of the Inchy Hexie Flower Swap and I love being part of this very friendly group of hexie lovers.  I asked for red and pink flowers, with white pink or red centres, for my garden. Four have arrived lately and they are all lovely.  Thanks to Michell and Michelle.
These hexies are sitting on a wonderful quilt which was a Christmas gift from fabulous Peg.

I haven't posted a picture of our darling little Henry for awhile.  So here he is at his home
and yes he now plays Mario Kart with his older brother Wil.  The life of a gamer has begun.
In fact he loves it so much it is hard to get a picture of him because he jumps up and down with glee whilst playing.
Just spreading the news that Sewn and Quilted will be closed this Friday for family reasons.  They do have a delightful new website so you'll need to confine yourself to buying online.  The Friday Afternoon Friendship Sewing group will also be cancelled this week too.

Wow!
This one is wonderful and tricky too.  So if you are looking for a challenge, op over to the Moda Bakeshop where the Jellied Lone Star is described as ambitious.  Follow this LINK for the pattern. The designer, Terri Ann, was inspired by the Lone Star block tutorial at Hopeful Homemaker.  you can visit Terri Ann at Childlike Fascination.  Many many thanks to Terri Ann for sharing this wonderful pattern with us.
Hope your day is full of fun.  I'm off to spend the morning at Stitching With Rosie at Gail B's so I know I'll have a wonderful morning.
Love
