In My Garden

I've been able to get some hand sewing done lately and here are the results - 'My Garden' blocks months 7 and 8 (this was a Lynette Anderson BOM - see the link on the side bar as she is doing another one soon.)
Block 7 - The Hive and Block 8 - the Cumquat Tree

The details are so cute and make the blocks unique. 
Simple and effective
French knots as the flower centres :-)

Hi Raewyn, Absolutely beautiful work. Your choice of colours is exquisite. You have inspired me to work on my version of Lynette's project again. Have you signed up for the next one? I'm looking forward to the Christmas buttons.
