|C56 child's Bouquet|
I just love the image of young children with bunches of flowers. You see some huge ones and many smaller ones, held out to a person they love... often their mum ;-)

|Would you believe that I don't actually know a Mary and so have never had a Bouquet for Mary, however when I made this block that was the name that appeared in my head and so it remained.|
|The colour of the fabric suggested Ruby Red for this block. All of the bits in the block looked like a pile of gems.|
|As each of the sections was made of two identical sections The Two of Us seemed the right name for this block. Funny isn't it sometimes there is no reason a name just seems to suit.|
On one of our holidays we saw some dancers who are known as Twirling Dervish. It was wonderful how their 'dresses' swirled. I suppose I should have named a block that spun out with the points in the centre rather than one the edge as in my block
To me this block suggested someone playing that game where they are blindfolded and they try to find people with someone calling out 'warm', 'cold' or 'warmer'. Their arms are outstretched as they are Reaching Out trying to tip someone.
Within was named because you had a star within another star
Christabella came from the fact of the fabric being beautiful, so bella and Chris was a friend who gave me the fabric.
What a memory that invokes of those country fairs and the difficult decision selecting our own Fairy on a Stick.
Clean Solutions was based on those nuclear free zone signs where people don't think that a significant amount of our medical treatments are now nuclear :-)
I just love watching bunting as it twists and turns in the wind.
I'm positive we all had a dress made of the Summer Frock fabric back in the 60s .. or perhaps you have one now as the fashions return to that era.
As a child I just loved making Mud Pies. Didn't you?
The circling birds reminded me of vultures circling some unfortunate prey that simply wanted to be allowed to fly away.
Halloween this month's BOM. Don't they look like spooky eyes?
Didn't we all love the bright pink and green Candy Canes that were everywhere when we went to the fairs as children.
Can't you just see this lime green Fluorescent Moss floating in the waterways?
Chrysanthemums are the most common flower sold in local stores for Mother's Day. I love them but wonder, 'Do all mums like them?'
You can all just visualise those little girls spinning in their pink tutus even though it is freezing outside. Don't they ever feel the cold. I suppose when I was little I didn't either.
New Grid is identical to a block in Collection 29 but reversing the colours means they look nothing alike. It surprised me when I was writing up the patterns to discover that I had duplicated a block. Too late to change!
Must have made Monkey in the Middle around the time we visited the zoo.
The bright blue simply suggested Reflections and so the name.
Hearts and love surrounding a loved one .... what a great way to live.
I just love sitting inside watching a storm descend.
A favourite pastime while growing up was playing Chinese Checkers.
Yes you can see the tempers rising as one circles a never ending problem
Yes there are many days that I appear to be going Round and Round and at the end have nothing to show for it :-(
Can you guess another favourite food of this family?
Absolutely no idea how Couer d'Or came to be named as such. The words mean "courage of the gold" in French.

There is always a special private temple within the public one that visitors see.
Yes I agree I have never seen a Fish Kiss, but it does look they are kissing if you squint yoru eyes.
Not as hot as our Summer Sun but you can still see the heat radiating out.
Two birds sitting on the window sill watching as I sew. A thread is dropped and down they swoop.
Every parent has hopes for their children but at times are discouraged and feel bound within.
Alexander IS gold. He is a delightful child who will have many battles in life.
The maze may have been easier seen had I used two colours, but then who wants and easy maze?
