June Blocks & Other Pretty Things...

After 2 weeks without my usual laptop & then getting it back from the repairers completely wiped & with a new, hopefully non-faulty hard drive I am back and slowly trying to reinstall software, find email addresses, recreate favourites & now catch up on some blogging. They are such wonderful machines - when they work.

So here are my blocks I did finish in June;



And I have finally done something with my 4.5 inch reject blocks. I'm not totally happy with it & will replace the little sprig of holly when I find something just right to go in those spaces. I also did the little Christmas cover for my cat hanger but think he needs a bow on his tail too to be truly festive.



I also made one of the small pillow which turned out gorgous, great little gift;


The last 3 stitcheries have been done in the last few nights & are awaiting their borders. At last a project that I am confident will be completed, not just the stitcheries done & then in the box with the other orphans to await a much later finish. Already looking forward to the next SAL!

Happy stitching
Tracee xx
