Last summer I started a BOM "Down In The Garden" by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley. I love stitchery, and once I started I really couldn't stop! Anyway, I stitched up a storm with Block 1. I avoided the appliqué (not my favourite part of these blocks) and swiftly moved onto the stitchery of Block 2. I avoided doing the appliqué AGAIN, started block 3 and then other projects seem to take over. I re-discovered this block at the weekend, and this evening I've finished the stitchery. My sister gave me some top tips on making the mini dresden plates that need to be appliquéd onto Block and 3, so I'll be tackling those at the weekend. Now I'm off to admire my real garden before it gets too dark!
