One Day Late

I have finished June's only one day late and  it's my second post this month . Pretty good for me. 
Thanks Chooky for setting up the  SAL. It does make me stitch and I am amazed how much I am getting done. I am sure it would be still in the sewing cupboard if I was not doing the SAL.  
But you are right it is sometimes hard in the busy lives we all live and we do sometimes get behind.   Perhaps we all should realise how important  "me" time is.  I consider stitching as a little me time..especially when I am caught up.....  Good Luck with it every one ..happy stitching..

Jenny




This is when I am glad I have already cut a heap  of 1 1/2 inch squares and saved  them in a cute little tin.


No cutting required.Yeah!!!

All looking great - 'me' time is so important but sometimes so hard to find.

Very handy to have all those little squares and the blocks have come together so well. I figure "me" time is cheaper than the alternatives - psychiatrist, mental institution....

Wise words Jenny! It's nice to be prepared and also taking the time for "me" I love the heads of your sheep. Did you embroider them?
