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!

As you can see from the pics above I managed to finish a couple of free gifts and turn them into cards for the FFG SAL.  I know it is a very tenuous link for that SAL, but an FFO is an FFO, right??  😸

That's it for my February GG & FFG updates.  If you want to know more about these SALs, details are below:

Gifted Gorgeousness SAL(GG) is hosted by Jo (Serendipitous Stitching) - sign up page (link is here)

Lovely projects, Noni, especially Piglet. Who couldn't smile after seeing him? Don't forget to link up to the FFG SAL if you would like your cards to be counted; a finish is a finish! :)
