Hope you all had a lovely Easter, I've had a little computer break for the last 2 & a bit weeks as I'm looking at a screen all day at work & sometimes it just gets a bit much. The up side of this is I have had a little more stitching time in the evenings!

Fancying a little change from pastels last weekend, I allowed myself to play with some bright funky colours & have a go at a new technique - fussy cutting.
This is Block 1 (nearly appliqued to the background) of the Brigitte Giblin BOM run by Material Obsession. I wasn't going to sign up for this but once I saw it was EPP, that was it, my resistance crumbled.

My Klosjes haven't been completely abandoned though:

Week 3 - 28 more spools
Week 4 - 22 spools, this brings the total to 97!

Thank you for all your lovely comments & suggestions, they're all gratefully received & I will be replying to all in due course.

Mmmm -- I just love the fabrics you're using for your klosjes!
Fussy cutting is addictive! It's always so much fun to see the effects you can get when you do fussy cut fabrics!
