Higgeldy, Piggledy?

Ok, my title doesn't relate to the night garden (for those of you with children and/or grandchildren you will probably know what I am talking about) but to where I am with my blocks! I didn't need the hurry on from Chooky blue as I was going to do this post tonight anyway - but its great to get that whip going Chooky!

I've also decided to do all my stitcheries first and the reason for that was, my wonderful 22 yr old sewing machine has just come back from its first service!! Yes!! 22 yrs without one....so now I can drag it out to do the borders. I also had some problems uploading photos but all sorted now.

Here is where I am at - all done, bit higgeldy piggeldy but I'm happy..........


I didn't realise there were 13 stitcheries........silly......so only traced 12 and put all my homespun and interfacing away so I don't have the 'spare' one like some of you intelligent crafters....

I think this one is my favourite.....


However I'm also partial to these....


What are everyone's favourites?

Happy Stitching everyone
Susie

I would have to say the "Bon Noel" and the Partridge in a Pear Tree are my favorites. However, I think they are all nice.

22 years without a service!!! ... sounds like our old Janome. I love having a old loyal machine like ours. Great to see that you got all your stitcheries done, and I can't wait to see them with your choice of fabrics.
