Design Board Monday #33 - Stitchin' Progress

I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. If it wasn't Mother's Day in your part of the world (UK) then I hope you got to spend the day doing something enjoyable....maybe stitching!

I was so lucky to have one of my children down in Tassie for a weekend visit and we spent the afternoon walking through a beautiful Tasmanian Forest environment taking photo's of some amazing sights...I will be sharing those pics on Cath@Home this week.


Here at Bits 'n Bobs... I managed to do some stitching since the boy and my farmer went hiking on Mt Wellington on Saturday.  I put a huge dint into Block 6 of A Country Tea Party while they were off. This morning, all I have left to complete this block is two daisies that need stitching, near the wagon.
Some of my favourite bits to stitch were the bees....the little flowers in the grass and miss Teddy



I also remembered to get a couple of thread skeins that I was short on so I can complete Block 8 of Flowerville.

That reminds me.....I forgot to show the finished block 7 last week, so here it is....
