The first block of Tail Feathers is finished

Last week I finished the first block of the BOM Tail Feathers. What a nice thing to do, I can't hardly wait until the next block. But the next block is just coming in september, so I have to wait 2 more weeks.

The first results of the BOM "Tail Feathers"

On the picture above you can see some results of a part of the stitchery of the first block.

These little Love Births is also a piece of the first block.

And a little close up from the stitchery!
It is al so fun to do!

Last week I have been on a city trip to Amsterdam. We like to watch the beautiful front walls of the houses. But a nice shop is also welcome. So I went to the English Bookstore en found this nice little boek. The size of the book is ca. 6 x 7 cm, and it contains a piece of ribbon as bookmarker with a tiny thimble on the end. And this only for the price off...........1 euro.

Inside the book are some nice pieces of text and some pictures. See the photo above.

Today I received mij first part of the BOM , I signed in for.

It is a block of the month quilt designed by Natalie Lymer from Cinderberry Stitches from Australia.
On the photo you can see what was in the package. One verry nice jelly role from Moda, some background fabric for the stitching, 2 fabrics for the applique and some DMC thread also for the applique and stitchery.
I'm so excited, I want to start right now. But first I start to read the pattern.
