Rested and ready for Winter

Just back from 10 days being lazy around the pool in Fiji rested and relaxed ready for Winter.... missing that sun though, it was 30  32 most days and 1 hour of rain in total for us, I now feel like I have had a summer...

I achieved a small amount of stitching on my life is beautiful blocks.  Since being home I have achieved the housework and enjoyed the last week of the school holidays with the girls....

I am currently working on the Foxley Village block of the month Natalie Bird's BOM,

Work is also continuing on the Flower blocks I have 7 complete now.

A group of ladies are heading to a sewing retreat next weekend, so I am preparing for that as I am organising.

As its now May I keep thinking I have blogged lately but alas as I see its been April since my last blog.

I have been stitching away quietly with lots of ideas and creativity to get on with new projects.... But I am trying to finish what I have half done or ready to send to quilters..

My quilt flower garden by Kim McLean is slowly coming along and I have some of the blocks with there pieced borders attached.  There are now 8 blocks done and one row together..

Foxley Village is being worked on and it is a slow progress at the moment as I have not got around to the applique for blocks two and three but progress so far ....

I am also working on the Baltimore block that has been hanging around for a long... time
I have started putting a border around this ..

As winter is approaching the cold has encroached us quicker than we all would have liked, but it does give us more stitching time inside without feeling guilty...
