Name banner.

I was playing thread chicken & sadly i lost. On the last letter from Miss "C's" name banner & all i needed was a little bit more thread to finish. Oh well a trip to the local patchwork shop is in order then. :)

Snow Happy Heart July.

I finished my snow happy heart on Sunday night after spending all weekend in bed with a migraine.   :(.
I changed mine a little as the designer made hers to celebrate the 4th of July & i didn't want mine to reflect that. Pop over & visit Shez to see her July heart.

Then i've been stitching up Baby "C's" name banner.
The next letter was almost finished last night. :) Just 5 left after i finish it off.

Happy Stitching,

 Time for FNwF hosted by the very lovely Cheryll.  Thankyou for being our hostess again this month.

Seems everytime i plan an early start for one of the sew in days my daughter has her orthodontist appointment. :) oh well them's the breaks. lol

When i got back i traced out the letters for baby C's banner
I'm using the baby alphabet by Michelle.

Next up i traced the remaining stitcheries from Ruth's Dream quilt
Once these are stitched the quilt can be sewn together.

After that i prepped out this months heart block
 Whilst watching the late afternoon news i started on these
I finished the 4 flowers ready to send off to the lady who is making 2 quilts to give to the 2 ladies  who started us on our Libby Morgan journey. They are to be a thankyou gift from us all. I've still to write my name in the centres.
after that i started stitching my heart until bedtime.
 Pop over here to find link to the blog of who joined in & what projects were worked on.

Round We Go bom update.

A couple of days ago i figured since the final part of Round We Go was due in i'd better get down to the applique part. :). I'm hoping to get quite a few more done over the weekend before part 12 arrives. I had 44 to applique & have managed 15. This isn't my final layout but it is how they are laid out - black, white, black, white ect. I'm guessing the quilt will fit a single bed. The blocks have been cut at 9" to be cut back to 8-1/2" but i'm thinking i'll just leave it to make the quilt a little bigger & longer. Something to think on as i make the last 4 blocks & finish the applique.
