Block 1 ~ My Favourite Things ~ B.O.M.

This is the first of a series of ten redwork stitcheries.
The theme is My Favourite Things.
This first block shows the things I love in my life, the garden, sewing, music, cooking, and a cup of tea with loved.
Each block will show a little bit of me.

The patterns aren't flashy, but they are there for you to play with and use, and please bear with me as I learn more about making patterns, and publishing them.

This is the link to Block 1.

On Top of the World, Looking down on Creation

There is only one wish on my mind

When this day is through I hope that I will find

That tomorrow will be just the same for you and me

All I need will be mine if you are here

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation

And the only explanation I can find

Is the love that I've found ever since you've been around

Your love's put me at the top of the world
