Caught up!



Its a good feeling to finally catch up, and only just in the nick of time before the new month starts!! I have decided that to stay on track, I will have to dedicate one night each week, for just GJ stitching...so will make that every Friday night!!

Bye For Now

Well done Lisa, that's what I need to do allocate a certain night. Good Idea.

Your stitching, in both the embroideries and the block, is beautiful! You nailed the points in those 'square in a square' blocks. Well done. I need some practice with those. And you got your fence straight. You'll see mine in the next post. I thought I got it okay when I cut it out, but somehow stuffed it up sewing the borders on. I've got to take more care. Think a bit more.
Looking forward to seeing more of your blocks. Love your colours.

Well done...I agree, it does feel good to finally catch up. Great fabrics...I can see a few in there that I have in other project boxes...good idea to dedicate a particular night to the project.
