Tired Brain and FNWF

Friday I decided to Splendid Sampler in the morning so I could relax and work on my Baltimore for FNWF. Oh my goodness I was there nearly all afternoon too! I really loved Early Bird and definitely wanted to stitch it....nearly did my head in. Anyway I produced blocks "Sunshine and Early Bird". Sounds so perfect together.
Crazy thing is...I went back for more today......"Bobbin Chase" and this sweet little Basket. Sorry I am not sure of it's name.
Definitely not sewing teeny hourglass blocks for this one.....a border will do with the applique.
Ok! So what was Friday nights effort? I relaxed and worked some more on the swags on my Baltimore Quilt borders. It is coming along nicely and I have completed one border. I stitched all the hearts on.
It's a bit of a challenge keeping everything even despite lots of measuring. I found the tempate for the corners as well now and I think it will fit...yes!
So I have now turned the corner...

I am really hoping the momentum continues. I am enjoying it a lot. It's time for a bit of a visit to see what everyone was working on last night.
Thanks Cheryll for getting us all together in cyberspace.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
