A few weeks ago "Sydney's Girls" Month 4 of Anderson's Farm arrived in the post. This is the latest mystery button club by Lynette Anderson Designs, and was bought online from Lynette's shop Little Quilt Store in Australia. This was packed in my sewing bag on Monday evening, and I made a start on it at sewing group. The next few evenings were spent working on this block, including piecing the patchwork Hens and Chicks block together. Yesterday morning saw me embroidering the tiny daisies on the grass. This small 4.5" wooden hoop is perfect for small projects...
...and yesterday evening I was able to finish off the busy bees, and a final press meant the block was completed! I've loved stitching with these gorgeous over-dyed Valdani threads, as the colour change is very subtle. The cute hand painted wooden button "worms" have just been laid on the block for a photoshoot, as they'll be added properly after the project is completed and quilted. Month 5 has already arrived, so I'm hoping to make a start on that one soon!
