Bugger.........

With Helen and Shiree hot on my case and the end in sight I thought I would be right to piece block F..........I finished resting in the garden while away during the week and thought I was good to piece the rest of the block........well bugger me I haven't stitched the dove cote.............I really thought I had.........and I have but with different blue thread and it was made for another present.............I so thought it was done for this.............anyway now I have to find the cream and trace it off............
so onto plan B to keep these girls off my case.............
I only had the seed packets to trace and stitch for clock H so that is what I did in between swimming in the pool.......
Ta-da.............block H finished.............
Still stitching the annual flower show ladies.............
Lori I think it was you that Lee sent me some bits of fabric.........see a square next to the tools............
&&&
You girls have done a great job during the week..............2 finished quilts...........I need to update the sidebar...........maybe tomorrow............
&&&&
I got to have coffee with Dawnie this week and her quilt is coming along beautifully too............all her changes look great..............
Keep stitching........

well done Chooky, it looks great! Such fun but takes time... I can't wait to get borders on mine and start quilting it (however I have several customer quilts to get done first).
Enjoy your coffee with Dawnie
