SKOW - 5 completed Blocks...


I have spent a bit of time on my lounge
 stitching during the school holidays and it has
 been nice to get back into my SKOW quilt......
I wish all those blocks were finished.....
After completing the applique for the first row I ironed
 on some vilene so I could stitch the words and detail..... 
 I now have a completed Tea Cup Block....
Patty Cakes Block....
Umbrella Block that I added a bit of extra detail to.....
Yay! Go me! That's 5 completed blocks ready to be joined together.....
Suitcase Block......
This one got out of order.....
Blogger doesn't like me at the moment and
 is taking a long time to load photos.....
Maybe because I have neglected him for so long.....
I am now busy working on the second row and 
will hopefully join them all together soon....
So there is a bit of progress Chooky.....
I know dismal but getting there....*Grin*
I have other blocks fused and bits stitched but not complete.....
I am all over the place really!
Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate
