Progress August September

Last Sunday/Monday I managed to complete the machine applique on both blocks.



Now I can trace the stitchery parts ready for those mini moments when I can stitch.

I have a new block keeper.

I wish I had a block keeper like yours. I have two bunnies which shed fur on my work. By the way your blocks are lovely especially with the pop of blue.
