I actually finished a block off, finally.



I was feeling a little despondent today about my progress this week (in life generally, not just TTS) and decided to get moving and actually finish a block or three. So here they are. My stitching has happened in seemingly no particular order and I have a bunch of other blocks already stitched waiting for similar block treatment. I also visited a patchwork shop this week and bought some more thread and fabric to make another of these quilts. I seem to be powering through the stitcheries and enjoying it enormously and felt I would miss it if I had finished (stop laughing all those of you who know me in real life!!!) and you guys were still going. Look out for more finishes!

I started out like you with a bunch o stitcheries traced on one piece of cloth like that and then realized I had them to close together..I like what you've done so far...they are fun to do.

I love the idea of you putting all the stitchery on one piece and then cutting them out like that! I am wishing why I did not think of this.... I have purchased a little heavier fabric for stitching but I need the sun to come to trace as my light box is not working that well.
