.....but hopefully I am now back on track and will be posting regularly! April has been a busy month with two visits to UK to see family but the suitcases have now been put away until the autumn and we are busy getting the garden tidied and planted up for the summer. I have also some decorating to do before our first visitors of the year at the beginning of June.
There has been sewing time and I have a couple of things to show you. First up, quilting on my pink BOM has continued - only five more blocks to do now.
I am really loving this QAYG - each block is so quick to quilt and it does not seem so daunting as quilting a whole quilt.
I have also finally finished the Winterberry embroidery that was in my winter Craftpod - you can read my post about the Craftpod here
I usually avoid satin stitch like the plague so am really pleased that these little berries do actually look like berries!
The patchwork girls met this afternoon and here are our EPP blocks for the Mystery Quilt.
As you can see they have all done really well. Don't they look effective!
This month their new technique is curved piecing and I am interested to see what they will come up with for this. Here is my block all quilted up so I am ready to start on the next block.
Just noticed that a fly flew into my picture! How annoying.
We had a frost last night - hopefully it will be the last one now until the autumn. Just hoping that it was not hard enough to damage the blossom and our walnuts. A late frost last year did a lot of damage.
It's Friday Night with Friends this week - sign ups are here and I hope to see you there.
