Wow, May already!! Where is this year going????

I haven't been getting much in the way of crafty things done recently, so in the last week or so I really put my nose to the grindstone and got a few things done. Doing things all by hand is quite time consuming, but at least it gives me time to let my mind wander and just chill out for a while. I completed the second block of my Country Romance BOM and I'm really pleased with how it looks. I'm loving the country colours because I haven't used them very much recently. I will be starting on block 3 this week.

I have also been part of a group doing the Tis the Season Stitch Along. It's been great fun and I have loved doing them so much I completed them all and am looking forward to putting it all together and adding some embellishments. I decided to do mine in blue/aquas instead of the normal red/green, and it has turned out to be beautifully icy looking which is just perfect for me (I have always longed for a white Christmas but never had one yet). This will be the next best thing :-)

I hope everyone has had a lovely Mother's Day. We certainly have here. Some lovely gifts and a relaxing day with stitching done ... who could ask for more? :-)
