Happy Easter and The Things We Love BOM Block from me.

How is your Easter going?

I hope you travel safe and have a fabulous time no matter where you are and what you are doing.

I am staying home and catching up on some sewing.

Decided to not go anywhere as the only place I would have liked to have gone to was to be with my kids and they are in WA so no chance of popping over to be with them.

I think spending time with your kids for Easter is important as its a special time to reflect on the true meaning of what Easter is all about.


Plus the little ones love the yummy chocolate Easter eggs


the Easter Bunny brings for them. The big ones love them too *grin*



I promised to give you all my little free block for the ‘Things We Love BOM’  from us ‘Nutters’.

I love coffee and especially when its a flat white or an all milk coffee.

I Love Coffee1 (Medium)

In my block I coloured it in using Prismacolor Pencils and then outlined it with running stitch using Cottage Garden Threads. and French Knots on the little mat.

You can download it from HERE.

Fee had fun sewing it and here is her fabulous version of it with applique and stitchery.

I love coffee 

Jenny had fun sewing it too and she did hers with applique and stitchery.


It always amazes me how everyone's turns out different.


I am going to try to work out what is wrong with the tension on my machine today as I almost finished quilting my new design I gave you all a sneak peek of last time here

It is looking really lovely and I can’t wait to show you all.

Anyway……as I turned it over to look at the back, the tension was totally unacceptable. AAArrrgggggHHHhh!!!

Not impressed with it at all……so out it all came!!

I think what the problem might be is, I put different thread in the bobbin to what I normally do machine quilting with and I am sure that is why it didn’t turn out for the party and play nicely. Grrrrr!!! Not Happy Jan!!!

I hope you all have fun sewing the block from ‘The Things We Love BoM’ and I look forward to seeing all of yours, so don’t forget to show me.

I will do another one soon…..I promise, because we all did say we would do two blocks and a promise is a promise. 

Happy Easter and hugs to all……..VickiimagesCA4GTMSH
