A good excuse does help to explain the constant stream of little brown packages that seem to be popping up around my house, though. And a "Block of the Month" is as good as excuse as any. "My new BOM pattern arrived a couple of days ago....so I had to buy some new fabric to complete the next block!" Please don't tell my hubby that I haven't finished Block 1 yet...eeek!
I love the colours in this quilt, so inspiring!
Have you ever taken part in a Block of the Month program? Every month you receive a new part of the pattern, (and new fabrics if you choose that option),and after the designated time, you have a completed quilt...that's if you keep up-to-date with the program. That's the hard bit. I prefer to choose my own fabrics. I love shopping for new fabrics :) So my fingers have been busy stitching Block 1, but also doing a little scrapping.
This paper is one of the new die-cuts called Penny Lane by My Mind's Eye...perfect for a LO about my girl's school achievements. The flowers, ribbon and some of the alphas are felt, which gives the page a lovely texture.
And finally, a Copycatcard...
The challenge was called "Going Green", and involved either using green, or using something recycled. I have obviously gone for the recycled angle ;) and used that red trim which was leftover from a diecut paper by Little Yellow Bicycle that I used on a LO around Christmas time.
Lots of polka dots again...I really need to find a new favourite LOL.
