Little Steps.

It still seems to be very busy here, but progress on some projects is being made in little steps

I have finished the little stitcheries from a FigNBerry pattern. They will have to wait for a little while to be made into a quilt, but I have enjoyed having a portable project to work on.

The Country Garden thread in this one is named Cobblestone.

I am delighted to be back working on my Jacobean embroidery and making good progress there, too.

Only two sections to go!

And I have also completed the main blocks for the Christmas Quilt from a pattern by Viv Robinson.

Here are the blocks together.

In the completed quilt there will be sashing and borders. It may be ready for Christmas ………. maybe.

I am thoroughly enjoying our warmer days and have spent this morning picking a tub of strawberries. Great way to start the day.

Cheers, Karen
