Stitching away.....


During our shutdown Cheryll has been hosting FNWF twice a month... it will go back to one a month from next month... but it's been fun to virtually join in....

For a lot of us the internet has been great during shutdown.  I have had no luck with zoom but others have been getting together, facebook has a group setting but limits to 8 people and of course one to one video calling has been around for some time and I have to admit the one I mostly use.

Slowly here we are able to meet in smaller groups as long as we be sensible and keep safe... I am all for limiting myself a bit longer.

Hand stitching continues every night and last night while joining in with FNWF I finished another little stitchery...  the new stitch for me was the one on the top of the flowers... like little triangles ... flystitch and the new thread colour is called Muscat which has quite bold contrasts.


Lavender was finished earlier in the week.... not a lot of stitching required for this one, but it's still pretty....

This was a BOM that I joined last year by Cottage Garden Threads...  I still have quite a few more to do to catch up.  


I did find time to get onto the sewing machine and put together my blocks that I had sewn earlier in the week...

Here is January to April of the Block of the Month I am doing....  



Wish You Well is by Gail Pan and details can be found on her website....

Meanwhile there is a bit of a mess on my table....


I am cutting blocks and tracing for the next two months of  Wish You Well...  every month there is a bonus pattern too and I trace those although so far I have not made any further progress.... guess I will pile up for next years UFO challenges???? (nothing like being well prepared!)

Righto, Gotto Go and work on making more mess... then clearing it up!  I do hope you have a lovely weekend... we are supposed to get some rain.... that would be wonderful...

Beautiful stitching Fiona. You've got a nice big section of your quilt finished already. I haven't seen this BOM so I'll go and pop over to Gails site now. Enjoy your weekend :)

Always good to get the blocks traced ready to work on.
Hope you get some rain, we've had a little but need more.

I agree, there's nothing like being well prepared. Pile on the UFOs. haha! I caught the Startitis again. I just want to start something new. Lovely stitchery. No one ever thought of drawing wisteria for embroidery? I think it would be a nice flower to design. Have a great day. ;^)
