An Animal Day.

Posted on | November 21, 2018 | 11 Comments

All the photos of projects in this post have animals. Not planned that way and I didn’t realise until I was preparing the photos.

First up are the Little Penguins from a McKenna Ryan block. I am back to working on these blocks. I think there are 3 more to go.

I am being very sensible and hoping to have this one ready for next Christmas – 2019. I know my limits.

Then I have a finished stitchery. It fits in a 6 inch hoop. Not sure if to finish it that way or to frame it. No rush there, either.

It’s a Cinderberry pattern from Natalie Lymer.

And last of all are the Aussie animal blocks being made for a quilt. They are all prepped and ready to stitch. No eyes of course yet. The pattern is from The Red Boot Quilt Company.

So that is what I will be stitching  next. I think I will need to make a few extra but I will wait until I see how the layout goes, then decide.

I have been able to avoid the big stores for a while but today I had to be in the city and of course all the Christmas music was in full swing. It didn’t drown out the didgeridoo player in Bourke St Mall though.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Cheers, Karen
