Stitch by Stitch

I have not been here for a few days partly because I have been so busy stitching and partly because I had a call back to the Breastscreen clinic to investigate an abnormality. Although I tried to stay positive, I was not up to blogging until I got the results. And the results were good.....just a cyst which didn't even need draining.

I had so many lovely comments about my "minute by minute" post and I achieved such a personal success by finishing almost all the stitching that I had prepared last Saturday that I have tried it again today.

block 11 of Teddy Bear Tea Party

block 4 of Edwardian House (yet to do block 3)
I finished the stitching on blocks 8 and 9 of "My Garden" (sorry, no pictures)


Hubby has been watching the AFL all day today so I didn't feel at all guilty in setting my timer for 4 by 1 hour sessions. Have a look at what I got done.

Block 12 for "Teddy Bear Tea Party" is ready for stitching and the applique shapes for the remaining "My Garden" stitchery are cut out.

Transferred the design of Block three four (it's confusing!) of "Edwardian House" - sorry, no picture.

Gathered some pretty pink fabrics together to make something out of the latest copy of "Homespun" for a gift swap and have all the pieces ready to sew.

Tidied up my project box for "Farmyard Frolics and finished preparing the replacement block for sewing.
I am so happy with how this block has turned out and hope Sally doesn't feel offended that I didn't use her original block. (This is one of her patterns as well)

And believe it or not, there is more! I sewed 3 rows of "Rusty's Quilt".....only two rows left before the next step of sewing rows together.

Wth plans to start another two stitchery BOM's this month, I am happy with my time management so far.  So please excuse me now as I am itching to do some stitching!

ps - I am heading to the Samford Village quilt show tomorrow so if you happen to be going too, it would be nice to have a cuppa and say hi.

Till next time!

 I am llinking this post into WIP Wednesday, head on over and see what other crafters have been up to.
