My busy days

I've been busy with one thing or another the last few days. Decided Sunday afternoon i needed to do something different but what? I'd recently purchased the felt for the 2 candle mat patterns i bought & since Easter is coming up thought the chicken mat would be perfect. I prepared the bits & pieces for it Sunday afternoon & then spent Sunday night sewing it all together. I think i did an alright job considering i've never made anything with felt before.
 I also finished another Brutus stitchery. I think that is 4 done now.
I've also been working on my Tis The Season BOM. The stitcheries have been done quite a while but i've only just got the sashings on the blocks in the last week.
Blocks for March.
Blocks for April. I've also finished off a WIP & turned it into a UFO.:)  Dawn's Snowflake BOM from last year.
Finished embroidering the last 2 blocks on Friday, then Saturday i embroidered the 2" black squares & Sunday cut all the purple squares. Yesterday was spent putting it together along with the outer border on the applique basket quilt. I was going to start basting all the tops today but it seems i'm developing a migraine so i think it's off to lie down for me.

Happy Stitching,
