lots of photos.....

A few years ago I couldn't think what to buy Mum for her birthday and Mother's day, I knew she really wanted to get the patterns for 'Gingham girls' by Bronwyn Hayes as she really enjoys her designs. It was the perfect gift. This year she decided to start it and she has been going great guns. As my progress on my projects has been slow I will bask in her creativity and showcase her progress on this bom.
Her stitching is absolutely perfect and her needleturn is just as precise.

this is the current block she is working on.

We enjoy sharing our fabric addictions and patchworking projects. 
Hope you have a lovely weekend with lots of stitching time!

cheers
Marina
