New Block for Flirting with Flowers BOM and a Freebie

How exciting it is here….its the first day of Autumn. That means the weather is cooling down and that means the urges to sew are more often.
Here is block number 3 of my Flirting With Flowers BOM and this one is called
All in A Row.

Of course you can do this like I have in needle turn or appliqué with Blanket stitch.
I have been getting some really lovely pictures of everyone's and its exciting and I feel so proud and humble that you all are enjoying sewing my blocks. It warms my heart totally. I will put up some pictures soon so everyone can see all the different versions.
This block will be available for free for all of March and you can find

I am still working on the layout of the blocks and will have that up for you all to see very soon….I promise.
I had to take time off to go to my son’s engagement party and also had to make this lovely little
Dilly Bag Vicki
“Bliss” bag
for you all for the Freebie over at Among the Gum Trees blog as it was my turn this month. I hope you enjoy making it as it’s a lovely bag and you feel rather special wearing it.
I have also been writing up a pattern for the Gumtrees secret that we have all been working on. Soon all will be revealed. It’s very exciting!
Hugs to All……….Vicki
