So the little stem I started to illustrate the bias stem tutorial (part of block one) got pulled out again, and after a bit of ferriting, ironing, messing around... I started to accumulate the components for the first block.
|The stem with some new leaves and berries|
|The bluebird block... not sure if the bird fabric is quite right, but|
we'll see how it goes...
|The rest of the block components... still need to finish|
the blanket stitch fusible applique, and join them together.
And this led me to pull out one of my other hairbrained schemes to use up scraps... an applique quilt using invisible machine applique and using a mix of scraps that fit into a completely different colour scheme.

Now, back to the round robin row. I have to be very discrete because this month I've been working on Ms Lottie's, so I can't give too much away. If you've been keeping track of her blog too, you'll remember her original row:
And this months theme was birds and bees...
|You'll just have to use your imagination! There is not however|
any nudity (although are the birds wearing clothes??)
|Just a few more letters, a star and a heart... very cute!|
Maybe I should call this blog "An ongoing list of projects and ideas that are started and never finished".
