LAHFA Block Two!

Good morning everyone! Now THAT'S a greeting not often read here, since I'm definitely a Night Owl rather than a Morning Fowl! 😜 However, the Lovely Libby Richardson obviously IS an early bird & has already uploaded her block as part of our Love & Hugs From Australia Stitchalong for you all to keep stitching your way through the zombie apocalypse. πŸ˜‰ Libby has two versions of her block, one appliquΓ©d & one stitched & it features one of her signature cute teddies. Pop over to the Stitchalong page to find the link to download.

I hope you all have a great weekend ... There's pattern writing in my near future ... Surprise, surprise! πŸ™„πŸ˜œ Take care. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

One More Sleep!

Yep ... Just one more sleep before the stitching fun gets under way with the Love And Hugs From Australia Stitchalong  ... WOO! HOO! 😁
So what's the Go Daddio?! 😜 Well ... The lovely Natalie Bird has rounded up a group of Aussie designers (including yours truly! 😁) & invited us to design a 6" block to share with our fellow Stitchers around the globe to cheer them up in our current gloomy world. Starting tomorrow (Friday April 3 - Aussie time) each designer will take a turn at sharing their block for you to stitch or appliquΓ©. Are you excited now?! 😁 You can use the blocks however you like, in small projects (some designers will show suggested ways to use the blocks) or you can collect all of the blocks to create a quilt ... You're limited only by your imagination. 😁

Starting tomorrow, there will be a block released each day, all you have to do is visit the designer-of-the-day's Facebook page, blog, web site or Instagram page. Natalie is getting us started tomorrow & the full schedule is ...


So many of my favourite Aussie designers are on that list & I'm honoured to have met a number of them in person, too. 😁 You can see my block is scheduled for release on Tuesday April 14. 😁

To add to the fun & help us all stay connected during this unsettling time, a Stitchalong group page has been set up HERE  Members are welcome to share photos of their blocks & how they're using them, as well as projects they've made from patterns by any of our group's designers ... But please stick to posting pics & projects that meet these guidelines, not just general projects ... There are other forums more suitable for that. I can't wait to see everyone's blocks! 😁

With our TVs & social media so full of negativity at the moment, won't it be great to see happy blocks starting to appear?! 😁 A huge shout out to Natalie for organising this fun Stitchalong. 😁 So get connected, round up your stitching supplies, tell all your friends & prepare to stitch your way through the zombie apocalypse! πŸ˜‚

But right now, I can hear my pillow calling, so I'll sign off. Stay safe & stay well. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

Brightening The Zombie Apocalypse!

Hello to all of my blogland buddies! I hope you're safely tucked up at home to ride out the zombie apocalypse. 😁 Apart from a quick trip into our nearby town (thankfully a small country town, so not many people) to vote in our local government elections, I've been enjoying a quiet weekend at home. That doesn't mean I haven't been busy, though! 😜

I'm knee-deep once again in some Secret Squirrel stitching on a fun project  ... Want a sneaky-peeky???


 Cheerful coloured threads brightening my weekend. I'm excited to be part of something special that will be happening very soon, so stay tuned for something fun coming to brighten the zombie apocalypse. 😜 I can't tell you more yet, but if you're on social media, this is the hashtag to watch for ...

#loveandhugsfromaustralia

Trust me ... You'll want to keep an eye out! 😜 But right now, it's back to the sewing machine for me. Take care of yourselves & stay home & stitch. πŸ˜‰ Til next to me ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
