Just like the delightful Susan I took a break from the projects I was supposed to be doing to have a play with scraps for another basket.

I did manage to finish Sheila's tiny (less than 4") bee blocks for Bee a Brit Stingy this week and got them sent off today. Her Princess and the Pea project is going to be so cute!

I also got some work done on a playmat and should have this finished by the end of the week - just needs the binding bit done and some appliqué.

I have also decided to join in the English Country Garden block of the month over at PennyDog Patchwork

Kerry has designed 12 beautiful appliqué flower blocks on pieced backgrounds and is offering free downloads of each pattern on Craftsy (for one month only and then they'll be $1.50 each). She's covering different machine appliqué methods and you can needle turn if you want, you can get all the info here! She's starting with that lovely daisy - my favourite flower and the others sound exciting too!
