Three more blocks for me.

These three. I got a comfortable sewing table and chair this week and it turned out I could sew after all! So I now have finished six blocks and I have also cut out the borders for the other six blocks needed for the quilt.

I must admit to being pretty excited about this quilt and I'm hoping to get it together tomorrow. We'll see! When I was halfway finished with the blue stitching I traced another 13 blocks, but when I finished stitching the blue blocks I thought I couldn't stitch another of these blocks ever. Just tonight I had the urge to stitch another, so you never know! Hmm... Now I have to think about borders, and backing, and batting! I need to go shopping!!!

I know the feeling...sometimes I think I'm a stitching addict...I crave it...and then sometimes I just can't be bothered...
You've been busy..

You're going great guns Kris, I have my borders cut (most of them anyway) but only one stitchery done for this month, I had better get a move on I think.
