I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

I love all your projects - the Christmas Ornament by The Little Stitcher is so special. I have recently been introduced to her work and have several charts on my Must Have List

Great work on your Smalls this month. I love the fabric that Toil and Trouble is on. I also love the Little Stitcher and really should finish the scrapbooking of the 12 Days I stitched by her.
I have now seen the second block of the Fantasy SAL and it is not to my taste. So I can just sit back and enjoy everyone else's while not feeling left out!
