*Please Note - FNSI Results will be posted on Sunday....I do hope you will come back and visit then*
The BOMs are coming in really fast at the moment....just when I thought I had caught up, I suddenly realise that I am a couple of months behind with all three of them. Blocks 4 & 5 of Flowerville are waiting for my attention as well as months 5 & 6 of Brookfield.
Right now I am concentrating on catching up with A Country Tea Party by Libby Richardson. Block 6 arrived in the mail earlier this week and I had only just started stitching block 4....Oh My!
When I last blogged about this stitchery, I had mixed up my thread boxes and so only had one thread that was compatible and didn't get very much done...just the little blue bird. When I got home, the stitching really got underway and a week later, I finished this block, when I joined a new sewing group at Timeless Designs.
I have to say, some nights, I just couldn't put it down and stayed up until 2am....stitching.
It really is the cutest little block....well they all are... and so now I am onto Block 5.
Block 5 is the central block of the quilt and is twice as big as the other blocks so far which means I am reaching the half way mark of the stitching.
I started stitching the teddies in this block just a couple of nights ago and they are really taking shape now.
I was so thrilled with how the satin stitch features turned out...although it is a bit easier when the fill in shapes are bigger. I am going to continue working on this for FNSI*
I say Friday NIGHT Stitch in...but...I have an overnight observation in hospital tonight so I am stitching this afternoon to take my mind off the event...and the fact that our air outside is full of smoke from the bushfires up north.
|I have posted about this today on Cath@Home|
*I hope you will be joining up with FNSI tonight. Head on over to join up or visit some of the blogs there...starting tomorrow. I will put up my FNSI Results on Sunday 24/1/16
