This month's BOM block

Bernie being out of action, this was the perfect month for Connie to pick an appliqué block for our BOM - the Christmas Cactus block. I'm not a strong appliquéer so I knew I would need time on this block, so I cheated and started it in early May.

























Tonight I finished stitching down the last of the red buds. Now, i used the same template for all of them except the four in the middle, and none of them turned out the same - but I guess there aren't two exactly similar buds on a live Christmas cactus either *lol*. Luckily next month's block is EASY!! *lol* My blocks so far look like this:





















A little certain someone is just too curious about what two-legs is doing



and it doesn't alway go well being nosy





















Luckily he didn't have far to fall *lol*. Oh, and I had a call from the shop this afternoon; I can pick up Bernie tomorrow - woohooo!
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida
