I have been stitching away at my regular projects which makes for boring blogging.
Here are some progress pics.
I finished my May Sweet Stitches block and am awaiting the June one...
Mr Squirrel had directional issues like Mr Cottontail (had to make them facing the left) and he is just waiting to be quilted... I thought the piecing on this one would be so easy but out of the three this is the one with the least perfect seams. I used some of my Reproduction fabrics stash. I love the fabrics in the border.
He will be earmarked for a gift I think.
OMG this is going to take ages. I have appliqued about half of the stars then it will be up to appliqueing the hexie flowers which I am looking forward to. Only four of these to do Ahhhh.
I may achieve that goal. There are ten rows and I have made a start. The linen was originally a white but I love to tea dye it for that antique look. Doesn't quite show up in the photo. The thread has a very subtle variegation and is gorgeous.
I won't show the complete pattern pic so you can just see it grow slowly...

Am so looking forward to the day to catch up with the other amazing bloggers there too.
Hope I don't get put on the noisy table again this time?
(wherever I am becomes the noisy table... lol)
