FNWF for June and a crazy finish

Signing up for FNWF was a very last minute thing for me this month. With friends staying I had not expected to have time to sew but we are having a mini heatwave and with afternoon temperatures around 35 degrees we were not going to be out and about.
I decided to make a start on my BOM for June. Well in fact we have two blocks to choose from this month with the option of doing either or both. I am hoping to get both done but made a good start on the simpler one of the two yesterday afternoon.


This block is called Tudor Rose.

Thank you very much to Cheryll for hosting us agin for FNWF - click on her name to go and see what everyone else was sewing.

My CQJP block for May is complete. Here it is with a few closeups.







I am very happy with the way this block turned out. The fabrics and threads were all hand dyed using procion dyes and I kept the glitz and glitter to a minimum. The star shape in the centre was part of a bracelet I found at a brocante last Sunday for 50 centimes - the colours seemed just right. And we have seen lots of dragon and damsel flies this week while out and about with our friends.


Have a great weekend

Hello Lin,

Your beautiful field of flowers in your header is stunning as is your own stitchery blocks, you are so wonderful to entice us all with your work. Could you please tell me the name of the white flower that is growing in with your poppies.

Happy days.
