June has flown by in a flurry of cricket, netball, bowling and various other activities. The sunshine has finally arrived and we've spent this weekend enjoying the garden and bbqing. It was a little quiet on the stitching front in June but I did manage to squeeze in plenty of work on Vignette – part one is now finished and part two is halfway complete. I think this may be a long term project as I can't seem to keep up with the pace…that has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of projects that are on the go of course :grin:
I've finally managed to complete the blocks for the Pennsylvania Dutch quilt – here are the final two…
This is block number 7, called Field Furrows and below is block number 12 which is called Journey's End.
I like both of them – now to sew it all together and catch up on some Civil War blocks.
I have managed to stay on track with the Henrietta Whiskers block of the month – here is June's block and then a picture of the first two rows sewn together.
I'm really enjoying stitching this quilt, it's an absolute pleasure.
I also stitched the first block of the Fat Quarter Shop's Designer Block of the Month which is called Sweetpea. I wasn't going to join this BOM as I really have enough going on but…it's made with Fig Tree Strawberry Fields fabrics and Joanna of Fig Tree is my favourite fabric designer of all.
While in the garden this weekend I spent some time with my current cross stitch project which is Once Upon a Time…an Owl and I accomplished quite a lot. I just have a few leaves, the rest of the owl and the moon to stitch and then this will be ready for framing.
No photos of the last two projects or Vignette just yet as my little gadget for transferring from camera to computer has gone on strike! Hopefully my in house expert will be able to persuade it to co-operate when he gets in tonight 🙂
I spotted a QAL for the Farmer's Wife quilt early on in the month and was sorely tempted to join in. So tempted that I dug out some favourite Fig Tree fabrics and put them to one side ready to get going. I did promise myself that I wouldn't begin until the PD blocks were completed and as they're now all done I can get started with a little farming!
