a few bits and pieces.....


I have had my blocks for Road Trip cut out and packed together for a while now.... (I take photographs for reference when I plan them) so my metimesewing at the machine has been working on these blocks this last week or so....


The fabrics are all flannels...


It's a great theme with all the postcards...


I do like a mixture of handwork and machine piecing....


The blocks don't take too long once all the pieces are cut ….


.. and now all the blocks are done....


Helen has hosted this No Fuss Stitchalong …..  it's always fun to see how others do theirs and the different fabrics chosen...


Being a passenger in a car has resulted in another penguin jumper... now there are 4.  I will keep going as I have a healthy stash of wool for them....


… and evening stitching has resulted in another block for Wings....  bird on a branch....


Righto, Gotto Go..... the day is started and there is heaps to get done....

Embroidery blocks in a quilt always make it more interesting. The postcard quilt is no exception. Looking forward to see the flimsy. It will be adorable I'm sure. The Wings block is awesome. You have such a lovely stitch. Enjoy your day! ;^)
