Not Long To Go Now!

I'm so glad I decided to join in with this SAL... I love working on the embroideries & seeing my pile of 'to be stitched' getting smaller by the week!
These have been stitched in recent weeks... & the last one shown was stitched on Friday.

I've been using the suggested Instagram hashtag of #nofussstitch, when I remember to post some SAL progress to my account... A week ago, I got a lovely reaction from none other than Leanne Beasley herself... she was chuffed to know her book is the focus of our SAL & seemed keen to see the blog, as I'd advised her the name of it. The fun of social media & its ###'s!

I have 4 designs remaining to be stitched, then the job of sewing the quilt top can begin.

Bye For Now ♥

the last of the stitcheries.....

I only had a few to go so this week I stitched away...

I traced last year and couldn't see how to change the date without it getting messy.... so a little bit of artistic licence has been allowed in my case.....

I laid out the last 5 rows and have them pinned ready to sew on my next sewing binge day....

I felt quite sad the stitcheries are done.... but that didn't last long when I looked into my drawer with all the projects waiting for attention!

Gorgeous, gorgeous quilt - I'm so glad for the nudge to join in....

Plus 3 Makes 18

Finally put the last stitches into February's 3 tags.

March's are traced and the stitching has begun ... perfect stitcheries for some evening relaxation ... loving this project.

Oh gosh these tags are addictive.... I can't stop doing them but I don't want them to run out either!!!

I had a weekend at the Beach - and this was just the most perfect stitchery to take with me.....

This really is such a happy, pretty  quilt to do - and I never knew it existed before you started this as a SAL.... thanks xx

3 More!

My collection is slowly growing and there are now 13 in total! 
Well 13 and a half if you want to get technical, hoping to finish it this weekend.

I have 3 more traced and ready to stitch and then I will look at how many more I want to include. 
I am only making a lap-sized quilt. 
Perhaps a few personalised ones for my MIL.

I am enjoying watching everyone else's block collection grow at their own pace.

Tally you ask???

I have been "quietly" stitching away - I had planned to show these when due - but Mrs "Not the Quilt Police" asked for a tally...LOL

All done - with fabrics cut...

Oops - just realised there were more cut fabrics

Now I just need some time & space to lay it out...and sew...

I enjoyed stitching these so much - it was hard to stop - I think I did most of them over Christmas and January.

Thanks Helen for suggesting this project.
