Stitching, stitching....

Nothing unusual going on here.... stitching and stitching.... I am an addict I know...

A few more blocks for Sylvia's Sampler.....

New Mexico - 77 pieces

Ocean Waves - 49 pieces

Sarah's Choice - 24 Pieces

This is now up to 122 blocks and 3964 pieces if I have counted properly as I go along...

Over the weekend I took out a long forgotten UFO this week having seen Jeanette take hers out...

My stitcheries have all been done and fabrics chosen....

.. these are all the main stitcheries....

I made up half square and then quarter square triangles..... I always find the trimming rather satisfying and then getting nice squares to work with.....

these little oval stitcheries just need turning in to sew them down...

.. they will be attached to the outer border on this piece - with a bunch of teeny weeny 1/2" hexagon flowers which are yet to be made.... that is this weeks job!

... rather fun seeing a quilt take shape... 

This quilt is called In My Garden and is designed by Natalie Bird at Birdhouse Designs

So that is on my Design Board this week (hosted by dear Cath at Bits 'n Bobs)  

Righto, Gotto Go - those hexagon fabrics need cutting out.....

I hope you have a wonderful stitching week
