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
