June Blocks (updated) .........

I got to spend quite a few hours in the sewing room yesterday ......... there was a bit of a movie marathon of X-Men movies on Foxtel, so Mr Fixit was suitably entertained for the afternoon and quite happy to be ignored  :)
blocks received for the CraftMad Family Quilt
from Mandy

from Merry
Clay's Choice

Star Cluster (Sawtooth Star)

here is what I have sent 





CHRISTMAS BLOCK SWAP
Tease photo for JenD, USA - June
hopefully, it will arrive shortly :)

Updated:  Jen's Block has arrived
Log Cabin

QUILT BLOCK SWAP AUSTRALIA
these lovely rainbow starflower blocks

from Donna, for June

since Donna was generous enough to send two blocks, I have returned the favour




making progress on my Christmas in July Swap
Bad News:  The kit I purchased was missing a few things - like threads and batting :(
Good News: I was able to use up some of the threads I have received as part of the Fat Quarter Swap :)

I am not a good embroiderer, but I think I am improving.  I am certainly enjoying the nice quiet time sitting and stitching :)

All that is left now, is to:
  • finish my CHERISH Do Good Stitches Charity blocks - 2 x improv blocks/log cabin in the red/orange /yellow spectrum surrounded by lights/neutrals
  • catch up on my RSC14 blocks - purple, green & yellow
  • catch up on my Globetrotter QAL/BOM blocks - March, April, May, June
  • make a start on my 12" mini quilt for September - Summer Theme





Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
