Finally an update!

After an absence of a few months, finally a little more progress! I know I've been missing in writing updates, but i have been reading and enjoying watching other peoples progress. Life has taken several different turns this year - unexpected ones. And not even awful ones, just unexpected! Anyway, despite not keeping everyone updated, I have been inspired by others and I have been making slow progress.

This is my latest - Home Block. Had great expectations of getting lots done while I'm on school holidays, but appear to have brought my sewing box but no book. I've just completed the current block and can probably put together one or two others without the book, but not too many.


Here is home block.

Without the pattern, these are the blocks I think I have left to complete - Tree, flower, Best Friends, Daisy, Rainbow, Sewing and Chair block. I've cut some strips for the joining.

I'm going to get this quilt finished - and that is mostly because I've joined this SAL and made the commitment. With how life has been this year, I would not have got this far without that in the back of my mind. Chooky's whip helping, too, of course!

Hopefully there'll be another block to show you tomorrow!
