More fillers

Here are some more of the fillers I used in Block 7...




My next post will feature the entire block.  And then it's on to the finishing (which I'm working on now).   

- Ric rac is something that seemingly has fallen out of favour recently, but I thought THESE pretty little flowers would be a welcome addition to so many other projects.  

- There's a really pretty knitted tee pattern download HERE.   And there's another one HERE.  

- If you would like to learn how to make a shadowbox quilt, there is a tutorial HERE.  

- If you are attending a summer wedding, perhaps you might like to make THIS to wear (or maybe for the bride!)  and HERE is another one that would be absolutely beautiful.

It's finally turned warm here - almost too warm, and a shock to the system.  Yesterday the temperature reading in our car was 32 degrees Celsius.  Now the plants and trees are really growing fast (as my allergies are fond of reminding me!).  

Today your quote is from Anthony J. D'Angelo...."Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine"

Very lovely fillers on your final courtship block. Lovely links for all the knitted wearables. My Grandma used to make these ric rac flowers which just goes to show...everything old is new again. You really do a lot of work to link such wonderful eye candy ideas and I thank you. Be careful with the allergies Sweet Mary Anne. Our yellow pollen is seriously bad this year after all the rain we have had finally. One of the gardeners we needed to quote us landed in the hospital not able to breathe from working in the pollen. Stay Well Dear...<3

Love todays quote. The little pink button and flowers are so sweet. Thanks for the link for the ric rac flowers. I'll use those for some rabbit clothes. I'll sue thee buttons with the beds too. These are so genteel.
