The F BLOCK a pleasure


The stitchery of this month has given me so much pleasure.
Resting in the garden with a cup of tea and a stitchery in my hand is a fantastic combination.
Slowly it is getting cold and dark in the evenings and that gives me more time at the sewing machine and I can finish the blocks.
It is great to see all of your blocks coming up and the finished quilts too. I have three blocks more to go and the stitchery on the next one is almost done.
I do not feel comfortable with quilting and I am already thinking about how to do that. By hand or by sewing machine. When I reach that point I need help from friends.
But for now happy stitching and have a good weekend.
