Keeping Busy.

Posted on | September 10, 2020 | 13 Comments

Welcome Spring. It has been lovely to get outside in the sunshine over the last week. But there has still been plenty of time to fit in some stitching, too.

Three of these little friends have been put together. I tuck these away for gifts. They are an easy project to have on hand.

I have managed to finish blocks 6 and 7 from Dancing Chickens and Flying Pigs. Past the half way mark now! I am starting to think about how to put these blocks together. I can follow the pattern but I am also thinking of other alternatives using sashing and corner stones.

In the middle of the project piles were these little guys as well.

They are now complete and have been delivered to their new home.

I have also managed to get all the border applique ironed on to the McKenna Ryan quilt. It is ready for the final stitching.

Still staying home here. Hopefully only a few more weeks. In the meantime I will enjoy the sunny days.

Cheers, Karen

    Look at those sweet little yellow teddy bears!

  • Wow, you are making good use of the quarantine time! I love everything especially the monkeys. I have a thing for sock monkeys. :) They are just always so cute.
    Before you know it your current BOM will be over. I find the first half goes rather slowly, but the second half is a breeze.

    The monkeys and bears are so cute. Nice to have an easy to pick up and put down project for when it’s needed. Love how your DCFP is looking too – I’ll be interested to see how you put it together.

    Love those monkeys–too cute and a good idea to have them made and ready to gift. I collect sock monkeys and have a little stash of socks that are calling to become monkeys–lol! I can’t wait to see the Dancing Chickens blocks come all together–they are just adorable, so far. Have fun with your stitching!
