SOME MORE BLOCKS

Some more progress but slow at the moment as I have a sore hand. Hope its better soon as I am eager to get more blocks done.


 I forgot to iron and trim the tree block before taking the photo but promise I will. I also decided to use a print instead of doing all those little flowers, lazy I know but I do have a sore hand.




 I am not a gardener but I do like flowers so I changed the words to more suit me. I also added a little friend who is admiring the blooms, perhaps he thinks they are lunch.


I thought this was going to be a hard block to do, so I used bias binding to create the rainbow andadded some embroidered flowers and was quite pleased with the result.
Still working on the house block and with luck might finish it tonight.
Cheers for now Jude from judesstuff.

Great tree fabric - and again no "Gardening all day" - I mean - it just gets your hands dirty and takes up sewing time. Good words you chose.

Hi I am following along with you stitching gals and like you no way gardening all day so I have changed that block to a clothes line "sun sweet clean laundry" -love that smell.

I used a print on my tree too but no cat drew and added Florida sandhill cranes instead. Trying to keep my changes true to Anni Downs style.

Love seeing everyone's work
