Butterfly Garden

 I got my Butterfly Garden quilt out the other day to work on. It has been hiding in the cupboard since I put it there over twelve months ago so I could stitch A Gardeners Journal.
Lynda has her Butterfly Garden quilt almost finished.
The first three blocks are finished, the fourth block is almost there and blocks five and six are prepared all ready to stitch and applique. It's so nice working on this quilt again!
 I have machine appliqued the appliques in this quilt.
 I bought this caddy some time ago (on a really good discount!) and have been using it recently to cart my ever growing stitching projects between the loungeroom and the sewing room. Keeps everything nice and tidy, rooms included!

Your BG is lovely Bec, gives me the guilts about mine languishing in a corner. From the comments, look likes there are a few in the same state! Maybe you starting on yours again is the kick in the pants we all need. lol

Awesome caddy - functional and stylish too!

Hey Bec! Hurumph!! Just wrote a big comment and blogger spat it out! Try again ... Love your BG and will have to pull my three blocks out sometime. They were put aside until I finish my Gardeners Journal quilt ... and GJ was put aside so I could finish some things on my "To Do" list ... and my "To Do" list just keeps getting longer!! SIGH!! Too many projects and pretty fabric, too little time and play money! :0) I'll live vicariously through your quilt for now! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS
