August Progress....

Haven't finished but here is my progress......
Lots of work on the centre block. Only a small amount of applique to finish and then work on the satin stitch stems which may take a while. Didn't help that I ran out of the thread I am stitching them with. Off to Spotlight tomorrow.


Lots of cutting of 2" squares for the check borders, also started to put some of these together. I also cut the blocks for the final pink border. In all I was really happy with the prep I managed to get done.

Be back soon when I finish my centre block. Congratulations to all the ladies who have finished their blocks for this month.
