Too many fingers in too many pies....


The block for Holly Cottage Stitch-a-long has been needleturn appliqued - I need to machine sew the block all together with the stars.  This is one of Michelle Ridgway's designs.


This months scrappy colour was Orange and I had to dig deep into a bunch of my 5" squares to find enough variation this month... I clearly don't use much orange at all and I have used artistic licence ranging from mustard to peachy pink..... close enough


Since I have a reasonable size of black and white scraps I decided I would do some extra houses in monotone.... so these are a bit extra this month.... I rather like them and they will be scattered amongst more colourful ones...  I have been aiming for 30 of each colour but I didn't do that many of these.



Last week we got these 6 blocks done for our 4 x 5 Anthology....   


... and this one was for homework as it needed to be done by hand


... the quilt is growing...... 



Keeping up with Dutch Treat - I try and at least get one done each week....


... and another completed block for the No Fuss Stitch-a-long....


... does this count as blocks too??? I cut all my fabric up for the quilt ... 



Righto, Gotto Go....  oh my gosh, my ironing pile is more out of hand than my stitching projects!!!

I am enjoying following the Stitchalong blog - the blocks are all so lovely. Because I had no real yellows (at the time, I have since found that they are in the box of swap hexies I am sewing together intermittently) I did goldy orange RSC earlier so I am skipping this month. In fact. I want to make a table runner and probably have enough already. Everything looking so lovely. xx
