Wow, it's over 2 weeks since I last put anything up here.  We had a great Easter, catching fish & going to different places, plus a houseful of 20 somethings who have too much energy lol.  The house is strangely quiet............

I was saddened to hear of the Gum Tree Designers going their own way, but that I guess means 5 blogs to look at.  Wonderful of them to share their BOM so we can continue :).

GUM Tree Designers - Block 3
I did this block in Cottage Garden Threads for the cat & the words.  Very nice threads to stitch with too - just need to save to buy some more lol.  A variegated DMC was used around the mat. 
Now to plan the remaining blocks & perhaps create some of my own...........

Hope your Easter was as good as ours.  Not forgetting ANZAC day - lest we forget.

Off to work.....and a short week too :) 

Enjoy your week



  1. I was sad too when the Gum Tree designers went their separate ways.
    Easter was a nice quiet break before kids went back to school. I did enjoy Weds with no kids or husband; the house was very quiet. I could get used to that!

  2. I was sad about Gumtrees too as I had only just found them through your blog. I've happily collected all the blocks and have them up to the stitching stage. I have quite a few of those beautiful Cottage Garden threads as I had a splurge a few months back and spent $100 on them. Very naughty but very lovely to have LOL.
