June Finish

I'm calling this project my 'sanity saver'.  When at the end of 'one of those days' (and they seem to be quite regular) I can sit down and pick up where I left off the night before ... and knowing that a NJ friend, somewhere, is also stitching away... maybe even on the same block.

Can I have a 'J' please ... so happy to be ahead again this month.


I have also made a start on July and pieced the background together. Might just have some time this afternoon to gather applique pieces.

Hi Narelle, I did read your post some days ago but wanted to pop in and reply. Absolutely loved your words re stitching with our NJ Friends. I agree it is lovely to know others around the world are stitching with you!
So thankyou for your beautiful words and congratulations on your beautiful blocks. July backgrounds look great.
