June Blocks



It has been a hard to get these blocks completed as for the past four weeks I have been helping my son pack up his house. Scott and my grandson have moved in with us for a while so today I was finally able to get back into my quilting room and stitch on the borders of the above blocks for June. It was so lovely to have some 'me' time at last.


We leave for 3 weeks holiday in the US on Wednesday so I have traced the last three blocks to stitch while I'm away. I'm hoping to visit lots of quilt shops whilst I'm there and pick up loads of bargains. With only one day to go and all our hard work behind us, I am finally getting excited.



Bye for now
