Consider the Lilies part 1 and My Garden block 8

After I had sworn not to begin anymore BOMs until something was completed, I happened across Val Laird's lovely BOM called Consider the Lilies and was instantly smitten! I could have used stash but…I'd been looking for a reason to buy some of the lovely Robin Pandolph fabric! It took a while to arrive and I was in the middle of making the birthday pillow when it finally landed so it had to patiently await some attention. This is the first part of block 1, the 2nd part was released on 15th February so I have time to get on track with this one before part 3 is available.


I also managed to get the stitching and borders done on the 8th My Garden block – definitely one of my favourites. Only one block left of this quilt to arrive now – I don't think it will be too long before it's here. The new button club begins in April I think – with a Christmas theme! I'll be getting mine from Bev at Fobbles again, hopefully with some fabric.


We've two discs left to watch in our week long marathon of 24 -season two viewing…no wonder I got so much stitching done this week! I took a break last night and did some sock knitting for a change.


It's another self patterning yarn, this time in my favourite colour ๐Ÿ˜€ there is nothing quite like the feel of hand knitted socks – shop socks although a fraction of the price and far less time consuming just don't come anywhere near this level of comfort!

    Your latest stitching is lovely.
    That yarn looks very nice – knitting certainly seems very popular at the moment.

    Lovely new BOM – pretty fabrics you’re using too. I’ve seen a few of these My Garden blocks around lately – I’m debating about joining in the next one – very cute!

    Ah In My Garden………will I ever start it I wonder? I’m sure I’ll be more motivated once I see yours finished so please hurry!
    I’m not signing up for any more BOM’s no matter how lovely they are.
    The lily block is very pretty. I don’t know how you manage to get so much done!
