June's Efforts

I've had a busy June and this all I have been able to do. I have retraced the house and traced the ones for July, so they are ready to go. I'm off to Bunya Mountains tomorrow for a bit of R&R. After some morning bush walking, I think an afternoon or two of stitching is in order, that and chocolate and bubbles. I also bought myself a pair of el cheapo magnifying glasses. I have good prescription craft glasses, but these are just that bit better.
It has been wonderful seeing all the new blocks.
Take care,

I think you may need a new pair of good glasses if the dodgy cheepos are better.........lol.........

have a nice time away and enjoy your R&R..........

keep stitching and you will get there in the end........

I knew you couldn't resist after you had tried my lime green ones. It shows we have good taste.

I don't need reading glasses but find a pair of magnifying glasses are great when trying to see where to put that needle at the end of the previous stitch. Love the way your stitching looks.I bet you find lots of time for it on your trip. Have fun.
