|May blocks, favourite is bottom rhs bee/bug ;)|
Thanks Chooky for setting up the SAL. It does make me stitch and I am amazed how much I am getting done. I am sure it would be still in the sewing cupboard if I was not doing the SAL.
But you are right it is sometimes hard in the busy lives we all live and we do sometimes get behind. Perhaps we all should realise how important "me" time is. I consider stitching as a little me time..especially when I am caught up..... Good Luck with it every one ..happy stitching..
No cutting required.Yeah!!!
Tomorrow the first summer guests will arrive, and I know the sewing machine will have a rest for a few weeks. But hopefully I will make progress in August.
Greetings from Oddbjørg

I am really enjoying seeing everyone's finishes and it is always very inspiring to see the pictures filter through.
I am also enjoying doing this SAL, but I have to say that the pressure is on, trying to get them done in time each month as there has been so many blocks to do along with the pre planning of colurs etc etc.
As you say we are all so busy, but I have to say for me, i spend any free time with needle and thread. In fact I spend many of my lunch breaks escaping the office to go and stitch get my blocks done, so I can assure you, i havent given up, just trying to keep up. !!
July however may take a little longer so I think I will struggle to get that one done in time, so feel I might be running a little behind on that one.
Re blogging and comments, when I do get some free time, I do try and leave comments here and there.(that is when im not stitching) heheh!
Looking forward to seeing so many different quilts at the end. They all look so good thus far!
I've still been using tiny scraps for the applique. The lady birds and floral heart were removed from Chooky's fabric scrap bin when we visited a few weeks ago - too small for her tub under the table. They weren't even big enough for the tiny squares in the patchwork panel.
You can't have ladybirds without spots. One fabric was ideal with a small print and I added some colonial knots on the other while I was stitching the head and legs.
The blue heart is another tiny triangular scrap from Nundle.
Thanks for keeping me on my toes Chooky. You know how much I appreciate the incentive to keep going.
I check in here often and have read all posts, love seeing all the quilts coming together!
My glue pen didn't survive though!!….she munched the lid to bits!! :(
June finished…I know, one small square has a circle… but I seem to have a heap of hearts!!

Here are my parts 3, 4 and 5. I am still playing with the stems. For part 5 I am happy with them because I went back and mad the stems ON THE BIAS ;).
I like that the project is so portable! I can't wait to put all these blocks together! Such fun! Happy Sewing everyone!
