I'm keen....


I'm motivated and I'm all revved up ready to start on Julys blocks.  Problem is..... they haven't arrived yet and they won't for another 10 days or so.   I'll have to settle for twiddling my thumbs till they get here.

OK.... I'm a little bit late showing you all my June blocks but here they are....


The reason for my late post was those darned bugs..... just as I was about to photograph the 'finished' blocks I discovered my bugs were headless and legless!    I couldn't possibly pass off two 'blobs' for Ladybugs now could I.  I think you might have noticed.

Stitched them last night (as promised Chooky) so all is in order.  

 

It is going to be really tough waiting for Julys BOM to arrive.... I love the centre block!   Sally (my pal - no blog) ordered the pattern only and she's already working on the centre... darn it!   She tormented the living daylights out of me on Monday when she brought the applique over to prep.  How cruel was that!

I'm off to wait.... patiently (ha)

Hugs
See you soon

Definitely headless and legless ladybirds would be looking a bit strange - great blocks - I guess you might have another project ton work on while you wait???

Your blocks look great! And your lady bugs are so cute. Come to think of it mine may not have heads or legs yet either. Oh my! That was a total oversight. Ws so excited to get them posted and move onto July! Anyways, good luck with July's. Hopefully you will be able to speed forward with it. It's a biggie!
