OPAM and a park, and some progress


My finishes for September include....

… this zippy pouch....


this embroidered thread holder....


.. and two little penguin vests....


Here are some pictures from a walk in one of the parks recently....















It was so windy yesterday I'm sure a lot of the blossoms have been blown away!!

I am trying to spend a bit of time in the sewing room each day playing with my projects

This week I have been preparing some blocks for my Bloom quilt thanks to Maria for twisting my arm with this one!  I love it and am using a layer cake for the flowers




… and evening sewing has focussed on needleturn this week and another block added to my Wings quilt designed by Michelle..... 


Lots of photo's today..... 

I hope you are all having a lovely week.... and managing to spend some time doing what you love and being with people you love....

Your flower blocks are just as pretty as those growing in the gardens. Sweet little birdie.

The gardens looks gorgous and so does your stitching!

Beautiful garden photos...That flower you are holding is an unusual one 😁😁. Well done on the finishes, your bloom blocks are beautiful and your needle turn block is stunning.

Louise said...

I'm halfway there! Have been doing lots of stitching, which I love, but am surrounded by some annoying folks. Win some, lose some!

You've been good in September and finished a few things. Lovely flowers in your neck of the woods. Never seen flowers like that one before. The one that looks like an ice cream cone. Very peculiar! I see that you grabbed one to bring to your place no doubt. (lol) Enjoy! ;^)

Looks like you had a lovely week Fiona, and of course whilst walking around the beautiful gardens, you had to have an ice-cream - I would have too.
