your very welcome Shez I am sure things will get into a groove for you with your needleturn.........

I think your blocks look lovely and Madie has done a great job picking the fabrics! I love the colours!

Linda said...

Oh your granddaughter is going to love this. I'm sure your needleturn will get better. Mine has I think!

My needleturn is getting better as I go. Although, if I have not done any for a week or so, it does take a bit to get back into the groove. I am already looking back at my cherries on the patty cakes going 'if only I had....'
I love the spotty 'rain' on the umbrella.

Great fabric choices Madie, love the umbrella especially. Isn't it sad to find something in stitching that doesn't quite come so easily. I'm still rocked by it & quietly avoiding the daisy at the moment because I know it's going to be a wonky daisy once I finish. By the end we will be brilliant at it! xx
