Kath's April SKoW

Not to much done this month sadly, but there has been a lot of cutting and preparation let me tell you!! Chookyblue will be delighted! I do have to get stuck in and get them little bitty squares done though and I they will test me a tad, but that is called patience... right? I have been sitting at the dining room table, the sun has been streaming in and it has been so lovely to feel the warm autumn sun on my back.

Here are some blocks all ready to applique....




I love this block, it is going to take a good few sessions to applique all those wee flowers onto that tree, but so worth it.

I have also managed to finish 'Home'


I have also managed to finish 'Home'

and I am working on this block also....

And last night, I did manage to cut out a lot of the squares so I am able to join all the blocks together. I am so looking forward to that, maybe a next weekend job!

Till next time

Kath
