a productive day

my first 5 blocks ready for stitching
It has been raining here for the last couple of day, so after finally choosing my fabrics and choosing the quick blanket stitch applique I have all my first 5 block ready to stitch. A quick trip to Spotlight in Campbelltown to pick up the DMC cottons I don't have and an evening of sewing looks in order. Like Suzitee I have written Sue S on my luggage tag, because there is always more than one Sue. Some will notice that the handles are around the wrong way - not for me they aren't I'm left handed.

Dont they all look fantastic together! And you are right about "more than one Sue / Susan etc etc" - I think the personal touches make it special.
