Watch This Space...

Why?  Because there is a chance of two more blocks by the end of the day...

The tradies have finally packed up their tools, the fence is finished and so is the house stitchery.

Wahoo!!  Put the final stitches in the fence yesterday morning before work...June stitcheries tick!...

and...last night was the night for one of my quilting groups and after a couple of obsessive, "I WILL get this finished before I do anything else!" hours...the garden tools collection was completed...

...add a tick for July stitcheries as well.

Hoping to get the two blocks together later today and add two more to our tally by July's end and two more letters after my name! Yay!!!!

Happy stitching...

Those tradesmen have really been busy, haven't they...the ones who helped with my fence, house and landscaping seemed to have been hitting the sauce as things came out a bit wonky...Yours look great...Yea for you finishing those two blocks before the deadline.
