Look what I got

My family is the best. I love Kim Diehl', work and I've been wanting one of her books for quite sometime, I was even saving the money to buy it but my family gave me this as a late Mother's Day present

I'm thrilled and I just began a project from the book
This is just the center block. Now I'm off to do the appliqué, I'm sewing everything by hand not machine.

 I found these lovely wooden buttons in a Chinese shop nearby, they are gorgeous and were incredibly cheap, couldn't resist.

I have that book too! I have yet to make something from it but I was just thumbing through it again yesterday.
Have fun! I can't wait to see what you make!
