Tempted and gave in.....


I have been watching a few ladies making blocks with circle applique on them and thinking what a great way to use up a bit of stash fabric......
hmmmm thinking ... thinking.....
then I got a little push from the lovely Fiona  from here, I had also been watching Michelle from here making lovely blocks .... so I have decided to jump right in but rather than take the plunge by myself  I gave my friend  Jenny from here a very gentle nudge ( big push) to join me.
I won't be as good as the other girls who are needle turning their circles.... I'm machine blanket stitching them and doing 4 a month  which I think is a reasonable target.....

So with morning tea at the ready......


and circles to cut out....


I hope you like my circle template....lol...
a very pretty plate.....


Ta...daaaaa
I have 8 blocks finished.....
4 for January


4 for this month


I will change colours each month.....

Ooooops nearly forgot.....
I had happy mail this week....
Windchimes BOM from Patchwork with Busy Fingers.....
Oh my goodness not another project......
I must be raving mad......


Well lots to do.....
so Toodles.....

Oh lordy... another project! Helen, your circles are beautiful (i'd be machining them too!) & I love your high-tech template, LOL
I really must resist the circles, I have enough here to keep me out of trouble, so I will sit back & let all the other Circle-ists do their thing♥
