A big 'J' for July please!

Here I am.... just a smidge late again!    

I tried really hard to make the month end deadline.   Tiggy worked a double shift chivvying me along.....

Focus mum..... follow my paw!
Seems I can't do anything without forgetting something.  This month it was the ladybug on the flower stem I'd totally missed.   Considered calling it finished without the bug but... I really couldn't do that. So I missed the deadline.... 'bugg'..ering about again. 

Never mind.  Here is my July.....

Take the shot mum.... it's not going to get any better
I need to spend a bit of time catching up with some other projects before the August block arrives but.... I can't wait to see what comes next.  

Am I the only one starting to wonder how to quilt it?     I fancy hand quilting,,,,, what about you?   How are you planning to quilt yours?  

Have fun with your August block..... or whichever block you are working on at the moment.

Hugs
Josie   (and Tiggy)   xxx

sometimes I leave something out just so it isn't like everyone else's and makes it 'mine.'

I think the legs and head of the lady bird, the legs for the bird and the border have caught a few people out - loving the block - and your helper..

So many pieces in this one, I agree. I had forgotten to prep a few end leaves. I love your photo shoot! Beautiful block!

Love seeing your finished block - I also have thought about hand quilting - once I get that far. Great little helper there (love the captions!) I have 2 "gingers" the younger of which is always trying to help out!!
