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) ...

Tis the Season Stitch A Long Progress

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 :-)

My BOM for this year

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 :-)

Tis the Season Stitch-A-Long

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 :-)
