Earlier in my blog you might have read about the Stitching Round the Block project I joined with Jan, Julie and Fiona. Well, we did take a little longer, but everything came together in the end and I received mine back from Julie. She finished it off beautifully, and it is just lovely ....
I also completed the block which went back to Fiona. I hope she liked it, and here is a picture of it all finished (I did the last part on this one which is the outer border) ...
So .... here are the first three blocks I've done. I'm really happy with them, and I'm so glad I decided to go with the aqua/blue theme. Some of the other ladies are doing some beautiful blocks too, and it's been a treat following what they have been up to. Time to move on to another BOM for a while now, until the next two blocks are started next month :-)
I have also chosen a BOM to complete for this year. It's a lovely country style one and I am really looking forward to it. I have just got my first block so as soon as I've finished my Tis the Season blocks, I will be starting this one :-)
Long time no posting from me. My blog must be feeling VERY neglected .. lol ..
I have been attempting to get my craft mojo into gear and start getting things done. I have been lucky to get into one of the last places in a lovely Blog Stitch-A-Long called Tis the Season. It will be going for some months to come, so I will be sharing my progress as I go. These are the fabrics I have chosen, and while they aren't the traditional red and green, I love them :-)
Our family has spent the last 10 years or so homeschooling. With my daughter now studying Children's Services and Early Childhood, it's my time to try and do all the crafty stuff I've been wanting to do for ages.
It would be lovely for you to pop in now and again to see my little creations.
