130 .... Counting the hours!!!


Hello my SAL friends:-)

At last something from me,glad to show you! And yes,aprox 130 hours before the deadline for block F, Chookyblue`s and my own! It suits me to stick to a plan. Hopefully it works this month too?

Well,here you see my stitchery of block F. I do a wee bit of combinations of stitches,stem and backstitch.I know when I get the quilt up on the wall,I do not see the small mistakes I saw before.

At the moment the rain is pouring down outside. The Autumn is here. I have
always something to stitch,to sit quietly stitching for an hour or so is very pieceful. In the mail to day I got a full envelope from Fatquarter Shop.
Nothing to do with a Gardeners Journal. But sure you would like to know!!:
a Layer Cake/Breakfast at Fiffany`s,and the pattern of aTisket aTasket by Bunnyhill,so I am soon starting,about 1 year after almost everybody have finished.

Anyway,looking forward to showing you my GL block F by the end of this week.... Promising you....

Grethe, Would you share the link for the Fat Quarter Shop? Your stitching looks great.
My Granddaughter says that is she resting in the garden with Yoshi, their dog by her side and my cat, Smokey in her lap.
Blessings,
Mama Bear

Grethe it looks all great. I am sure you will have it sewed together before the end of this month and chookyblue will be satisfied.

Your Block F stitcheries are lovely...
