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!

Nice new starts! Funny how an older design like Nantucket Rose is suddenly very popular again.
Love the fabric you chose for Castles in the Air, what a gorgeous colour!
Also love the little JN piece for the Guess What challenge. That was a fun one to take part in.

Lovely new starts! You have used variety of fabrics to stitch on. I recently purchased some dyed fabrics and would soon start stitching on those.

Brigitte said...

Great new starts, Leonie. That reminds me of the fact that I haven't started anything for quite a while. I think I have to remedy this in the near future, loll.

Rhona said...

Oooohhh....great new starts! Your fabric choices are wonderful too.

Julie said...

Great selection that's hopped into your workbasket for some little crosses to be added to.
