Block 8 for Out Of The Box BOM

It’s the 1st of the month again!

Here is Block 8 for Out Of The Box BOM for you all and I hope you enjoy sewing it as much as I did.

8 Blocks Eight

I was a very lucky lady to have received a gorgeous little sewn angel from Dawn for Christmas last year and I just love it!

So I decided to stitch it in this block. Isn’t she lovely?

And we have to have our tea…so a teapot is there keeping the freshly brewed tea lovely and hot for us. I had some fine ribbon in my box of embellishments and teamed it with beads for the apricot flower.

I love apricot colour and delight in how gentle the shades of apricot can be. I love apricots to eat too….Mm yumm!


I read somewhere that this person really hated the colour of apricot.. that confused me as its such a lovely colour.

With the ribbon in between the little blocks I machine sewed over with one of the fancy stitches my machine can do.

Enjoy sewing your block and later tonight I will be picking one lucky winner from the Out Of The Box Flickr  group and surprising you with a little giveaway and so will Dawn.

So you have until tonight to still get your piccies of your blocks in to the Flickr group.

You can download Block 8 HERE. Don’ forget to go to Dawn’s blog and get her lovely block 8 too.


We are  off to see the exhibition of King Tutankhamen today at the Melbourne Museum.


I am looking forward to it as a lot of original pieces will be there to see and this is the last time they are going to be on tour.

What are you doing today? What ever it is I hope its a good day for you all.

Hugs to all…..

SO DARLING - thank you Vicki, another beautiful Out-of-the-Box stitchery to do! I love apricot too, it's a very flattering color to wear, as well. Not sure how someone could not like it. Enjoy the Tut exhibit, I saw it years ago and it was magnificent!
