Phew... a couple of months up my sleeve!

I've been working hard to make sure I avoid that whip cracking!! I have now finished another 6 blocks. That brings my total to 18 blocks (as I am sewing two quilts the same). Again, I am really enjoying these stitcheries. It only takes a bit over an hour to feel like I've achieved something!


These are the last two fabrics I'm using for my last 6 blocks. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they'll all look like together!


Hope that no one else has experienced the whip!! ;)

Your blocks look wonderful!! That fabric is just gorgeous - what is it? I love cream with red. I wish I had of done my stitcheries on cream however it wouldn't have gone with the fabric I chose anyway. Keep up the great work!

I'm loving the stitcheries too Maree. So relaxing and easy to pick up and take with you. I'll miss doing mine now I've finished them, but I'm looking forward to putting it all together and hanging it up :-)
