Butterfly Garden - This weeks miniblock.......

Added the little stitchery buddleia (Butterfly Bush) flower on this weeks miniblock last night.....................

Sorry about the poor focus on this closeup of the stitchery.........definitely still need to work on my photography skills!

I'm hoping to get into my garden and have a major tidyup this weekend, so maybe not so much time for stitching this weekend, unless of course the weather doesn't co-operate with me!

Thanks for looking........ have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned.  Nicky

Nicky, you have such gorgeous stitching! I love your quilt blocks...one day I hope to get my hand into quilting!

Congrats on your L*K Christmas finish! That is a great piece and one that I hope to start...eventually!

Glad to hear that you got away from the farm for a little R&R with the girls. Take care!

The little embroidered flower is such a nice embellishment. You have such perfect lazy daisy stitches. Mine always turn out too narrow or lopsided or something.

What an adorable block. I love the added embroidery. Very cute.

Good luck with your weather this weekend. Here it is hot, hot, hot with an extra dose of humidity. I'll be staying inside with my stitching.
