Two More Gathering Blocks....

Just got back from having a lovely yummy lunch at my DS's restaurant...
He has worked very hard to get where he is today...and I guess you can tell I am very proud of him and my DIL who also works very hard with him..
Dh had slow oven cooked lamb shanks in a lovely tomato caper sauce, with potato smash and vegies. He said they were so tender, just melted in the mouth!
I had fish of the day which was grilled Snapper on a rice and pumpkin cake patty, asparagus, slow oven roasted tomatoes with capers , lemon butter sauce, and thin crisp potatoes slices to garnish....Oh! and he makes garlic bread to die for....make you hungry!


Here are two more of the gathering blocks for next Easter.
I love this one, and it will be hard to part with it, but I know it will be going to a good home.
It's all mainly done in pansies to fit in with the pansy print..the colours are also all in the mauves and purples.
I beaded a little butterfly and added it near the print..







Here is the pansy print again...this time on a cream block ,
I'll call this block My secret garden.
An arch with wisteria growing over it and a path that leads to a secret garden, foxgloves and pansies growing along the path..

  1. Hi,
    The blocks are beautiful..particularly the black one.
    I saw a cross-stitch pattern that made me think of your collection..an outhouse..it's on Cyberstitchers.com under Free patterns. I thought you'd like it.
    Have a great day,
