Some Kind of Wonderful – part 1

I decided to take a little break from stitching Wildflower and carry on with my blocks for the Some Kind of Wonderful stitch a long. I had stitched the first two blocks a little while ago and had only 3 blocks to stitch to be up to date with the schedule. These little blocks are hard to stop stitching – very addictive indeed! Here are the first four completed blocks – the fifth one, the suitcase, is almost done I'm in the middle of stitching the words on it.

I'm stitching the little patchwork sections on as I go and then stitching the blocks together – just the suitcase to finish and I'll have the first column complete and can stitch on the first two borders.

Here's where I'm up to with Wildflower…I've two large flowers left to do, a couple of words and the coloured stitches in the large leaf. Might stitch on this at the weekend at our crop but then again, I might stitch some of the Autumn Blackbird Designs instead 🙂

I mentioned to Carole about the new CCN monthly cottages. Looks like we'll be having a little shopping spree sometime soon 😀 I asked yesterday and Karla at Patchwork Rabbit has the January chart just waiting to be ordered up!

    Your Wildflower looks gorgeous. I’m not that far behind you so maybe I’ll catch up a bit this weekend, depending on what you decide to stitch on.
    Love your patchwork blocks. What lovely designs.
    And yes, looking forward to a wee shopping spree at Patchwork Rabbit. I was a bit of a pushover, wasn’t I! *grin*

    Love those blocks but then I love anything by Anni Downs.
    Your Wildflower is really pretty and great choice for the next SAL. I shall enjoy watching you stitch those.

  3. How I love Anni Downs and Blackbird designs !
    That’s a very good start ! Your first blocks are georgeous.
    I can’t wait to see the completed quilt.
    I also have this book and I would really love to make this model, but time, time always..
