Not Dead...Still Stitching

Wow, what the ? happened to June...I know I said that about May but June...come on, give me a break...aren't months supposed to be more than a couple of days long!!!  Or is that just me...

A couple of days to go yet so you never know I might get the May block put together as my world has started spinning a bit slower, but at least the Block A stitcheries are done...


and I've started June's for Block C...


Given that the June block has the largest stitchery in it I'm not even going to pretend that there is any chance of that block happening before Wednesday.

Finally read all the blog posts for June last night...great work ladies...how awesome that there are even a couple of finished tops in there and love the individual touches like adding ric rac and some colouring-in...it really does help to motivate to see how everyone else is faring and to see all the different variations...

Happy stitching everyone...

You're doing great and I'm with you, where does the time go...Now that I am used to stitching every time I sit down for a minute, I find I have to have something to do...Just ran out of 3011 and some of the other threads are running low so I'll need to restock...
Keep stitching,
Mama Bear
