Natures Journey March Blocks

I was running out of time & still had to do the blocks for March in the SAL. Saturday i dragged out the fabric & pattern but where did i put my freezer paper? Found enough scrap pieces for what i needed to do.
This was a far as i got Saturday night.  3 plus nearly all the 4th.  Whilst waiting to go to this,
i finished the rest of the applique. Monday saw me doing the embroidery & the blocks were done & dusted with a day to spare.
Yesterday saw the arrival of 2 parcels. The first parcel was from Fiona in the Kitten mini quilt swap
All my lovely goodies. I was surely spoilt thanks Fiona. Next parcel was from Rose.
The very lovely Rose kindly crocheted me a pair of wrist warmers & included a surprise bag of Easter eggs. Thankyou ever so much Rose.

Swap Sewing

I'm taking part in a mini swap & i couldn't decide between several patterns not to mention what fabrics to use. Yesterday i bit the bullet & went with a freebie pattern by Keera.
My fabrics are by Cotton & Steel. The white tone on tone isn't from Cotton & Steel.

No FNSI........

......again for me. I had plans, big plans. You'd think i'd learn not to make plans when i have 3 days of uninterrupted sewing because when i do something happens. Like bloody migraines. Grrrrr. Fortunately it went by yesterday morning so i could sew. I did manage some sewing yesterday however but the migraine came back.
Finished off this little Easter runner,
this cat pincushion,
& the final 2 blocks for the Bonnie & Camille Sampler swap i needed to make. Still waiting on my final one from February which i've been told i'll receive. I don't think i'll hold my breath over that one.
I finished the pink present several days ago & started the candy canes Saturday night. All i needed to add was the bow on one but it was my bedtime. Completed it yesterday & started on the next decoration which is a drum.

Pop over here to find the links to what the other ladies got up to Friday night.

Working with felt.

Recently some friends started making come cute little ornaments from felt. Curiosity got the better of me so i investigated & just had to have one.
This arrived several weeks ago & Tuesday night i finally got started.
Finished Santa yesterday then started on
Since he was finished thought i may as well continue on & got this one made
There is also a pink present which is half done but i called it quits & went to bed.

B & C Sampler blocks.

It is the last month for our online Bonnie & Camille Sampler blocks swap to run. Yesterday 1 of the March blocks arrived.
I decided to see how all the blocks i've been sent looked together.
Only 2 blocks left to received & then i'll decide on a layout & what i need to add. 1 February block is missing & quite frankly i'm not sure i'll ever get it.

Happy Stitching,
