Of course it's such a gorgeous fabric anyway, so there will be 12 blocks like this one in this 'Charming Stars' pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. I haven't quite decided yet what else I'm going to do with it, but I really love this pattern, so for my second block I had the bee girls make me another one but this time in this...
(excuse the terrible photo, it's really Kona Ivory, not pink in the middle. The weather is so horrible here right now, not good photo weather at all)
..Bliss by Bonnie & Camille for Moda, it's just that isn't it...Bliss!! I love it and it's for me, me, me, me..! Did I say that the Bliss quilt is for me?? Hehehe. love it..
Remember the other day when I took you for a walk around my lovely sunny garden..? Hmmm, well, since then we've had huge amounts of rain, one of the driveways is still flooded, the shed/garage is flooded, much to The Railway Mans disgust as all his timber is now wet?? The dam is full, both the little pond in the house garden and the big pond are overflowing, the courtyard is under 6" of water and the garden areas have so much water in them that it oozes out when you walk on the grass. My lovely fluffy poppies are now bowing their heads with the weight of the water...
...and lose their petals with the slightest wind..
..of course, all this rain does make for some great shots of raindrops on roses
...and whiskers on puppies
Isn't she gorgeous..? Of course she is, and settling in very well too. Sleeping, eating, playing and you know what else constantly...! She's adored and adoring, she's made her place in the house and our hearts. She plays and rolls around with Miss Martha and we spend a huge amount of time watching them while the TV plays to itself. She's just started to give little barks when she's playing but if Martha barks she runs and hides under the chair, just peeping that little black nose out to check it's all clear...!
I'm off now to do some more secret sewing, I can't wait to show you what I've done..! I'm ridiculously pleased with myself because I've quilted a whole quilt on the machine, don't laugh, it's a huge achievement for me. Nothing fancy, but it's quilted and ready for binding and it only took me two days...........Wow, I'm clever :o)
