The Birthday block swap for which I had made the 'circles' blocks from my last post has been sitting on my shoulder like Jimminy Cricket - with good reason considering how behind I've allowed myself to become
I was acutely aware that I still owed a red, black and white block for March, a purple rose block for April and finally a NYB block for May to bring me right up to date to work on Kate's 3D block for June
Here are the completions so far to bring me right up to the present day
Only June to do which is current so I'm up to date - hurray! Now to think up something with a 3D element for Kate - ideas anyone?
I've also been stitching more sashings for the Batik Baskets - but as they're all much the same they're a bit boring
However I did find time to put all those hourglass squares together - a couple of borders should bring this up to Cot size
And finally I have a pot of Marguerite daisies outside both my front and back doors - I love these simple plants, they remind me of living in France, and if you deadhead them regularly they'll reward you with a wonderful succession of blooms all summer long - this little fellow was captured just minding his own business, ignoring me as I opened the front door after work the other day
