Plodding along....

Monday is here again and I am getting to spend it at home. I have swapped my day off so that one of the other girls can take Friday off instead.
Feels a little strange being home on a Monday. I have flitted around tidying up and what to do next....... I know-catch up on blogs, obvious wasn't it?
I thought I would post my latest Life is Beautiful finishes...



I couldn't add much applique to the daisy block as the pieces would have been a bit small so I used a contrasting colour to make it a little different.

Bug in progress but I just love the fabric for the body. The original had stitched circles making up the body but I knew I wouldn't get them perfect so I thought a nice paisley would look good.

I am still waiting for an oppurtunity to sew up the four patch blocks that go behind the stitchery medallions, they are cut. This Saturday I should have to myself so the old Janome will be out and purring. I also have gotten behind with my Heart and Home bom. The last pattern should be out next week and I have to catch up. All the pieces to be sewn from last month are cut and safely put in marked zip lock pockets. I felt a little obsessive compulsive doing this but there are so many little pieces of different sizes. Just to get that machine out....
If I could have the rest of the week off, perhaps. I can imagine asking my boss.. could I please have the rest of the week off as I need to catch up with my bom's. ????
Well best get fired up and get ready to go hunting and gathering or there will be no dinner in this place tonight! What a waste of a day off.
Have a great week.

Your blocks are looking amazing - I agree with the fabric for the bug - perfect. Hope you get a chance to get your Janome purring real soon. Happy Monday

Wonderful stitchery Marina. I'm amazed at how much you manage to accomplish, even though your real jobs sometimes get in the way!

Your blocks look fantastic and I agree withthe fabric choice for the bug...it's perfect. My Janome will be hum this week as well, but on have to do's rather then want to do's. Hope you have a fabulous week. Hugs~
