Block 3.

It rained yesterday for the first time in months-however in our part of Brisbane it didn’t come to much at all so still had to water the garden. The promised thunder and rain didn’t eventuate last night and now it is back to 30 degrees today.

How many have received Block 3 of Sue Ross’s BOM? I got very excited when I saw the parcel at my doorstep but have to say when I opened it the fabrics did not grab me and still don’t.


I have done my practice block and it is not a hard block to so. The photo of it has not come out well as the background is black with white dots on it and the camera didn’t like it.

SANY0709I used my machine and a blind hem stitch to do the applique parts but don’t really like how it turned out. Would love some tips on the stitch to use and the settings any one else uses when they use their machine to applique. I’m not a hand worker but have did do Block 1 by hand and like the end result better.

Have finished my Stitchers Angels gifts so it is off to the post office to send them on their merry way to the USA. I hope the receiver enjoys them and takes a better photo than I did before I wrapped them!


  1. Ooh I love your practice block Marls, I have the pretty block and the fabrics for that are lovely. Will you swap out some of yours? I haven't started mine yet, hopefully today. xo

  2. Until the block is finished, it is hard to tell just how those materials will work. I HATED the material I was given for the little bag I made on the weekend, but it turned out surprisingly lovely!

  3. I'm really looking forward to getting mine and have been wondering if I have been forgotten this month! I hope you are happier with the fabrics when your block is done - the practice one looks great! So far the fabrics have been a bit of a disappointment, hoping for a better lot this month - I'm doing Pretty, too!
