Still Stitching...

After spending a couple of months in stitchy wilderness A Gardener's Journal has emerged back into the light...
Only the stitcheries...there has been no block construction action going on...so that's Resting in the Garden, the Birdhouse and the Row of Flowers stitcheries for Block F...mmm apparently that block was going to happen in September...it didn't, oh well...the lawnmower for Block B which was slated for October...oops! missed that one too...and Ladybird for Block E, hey! that's December's block, that would be this month! wahoo!!...oh what's that?...September, October and November come Before December...bugger!...thinking I'll just keep on with the stitcheries and worry about the block construction once they are done...

And to provide me with even more reasons to get distracted this arrived in the mail yesterday...

All ready to go for the next Stitch-A-Long project...love it...

Suppose I'd better finish this one though so...Back to stitching Smelling the Roses...

Happy stitching...
Annette

Not to worry...the stitching takes the longest! Once you start piecing it, the quilt comes together quite quickly. Keep up the great work!

Just found you on the Abyquilt blog. I am new to stitchery but would love to join in!! I cannot find that Christmas book on Amazon. Any suggestions? Also, I am off to look up the book you are doing now.
