Having a change.

The last couple of days i've been doing some cross stitch. I bought this little kit quite a while back, made a start & then abandoned it.
I've managed quite a bit in just a few days considering the Aida is a very small weave. Not sure if the count. 

Happy Stitching,

Round We Go bom

Earlier this week i finally got to prepping the last 4 blocks of my bom
Last night i finished sewing them together
All that is left is to applique these 4 to the backgrounds, trim them back & then sew all the blocks into a top.

Yesterday i joined in FNSI hosted by the lovely Wendy.  In the morning i trimmed the stitcheries from Send My Love bom by Gail Pan ready to sew onto their backgrounds.

 After that i spent several hours with my son trying to get an issue with the desktop sorted. And wouldn't you know it despite spending money buying a new Windows program it still isn't fixed. Grrr. Hopefully today it will get sorted.

Then last night i appliqued the stitcheries to the backgrounds
and July blocks are done.

Pop over to Wendy's blog to see the links to find what projects everyone who joined in worked on

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.

 I started FNSI making bias strips. I had several pieces left from when i made the blocks that were long enough to use so i counted how many...
