stitching on

I think I might have gone a bit wild but it's nice to have some finished in reserve for busier months. 

I'm loving these. They are so easy to trace out and stitch. 
Definitely no fuss! 
That's the end of my second skein of thread. 


edit: I started cutting my fabrics after posting. It had to be done, I was getting emotional knowing they wouldn't be in my stash any more. 


These smaller blocks are so much fun....

First Block Done...

First block?... or is it the last block?!

Block #35 is finished... I'm going to work backwards through the blocks, doing the odd-number blocks, then forwards doing the even-number blocks... if that makes sense😉
 I have all the heart-eyes for the thread I've chosen😍😍.... the shades are gorgeous & it variegates beautifully every few inches. No sheen like the standard DMC threads, but that is intentional of that particular range with the DMC embroidery floss collection.
Bye For Now♥

8 Done

Loving these blocks they are so quick to do,i have finished 8 and that will be it for awhile as i go away next month for a few weeks.
Cheers Shez xx

Two done…


Two down….lots more to do….

I Finally Made Up My Mind

Thank you Helen & all of you other ladies for your inspiration & encouragement to join you!

Being that I already have so much on my sewing radar, it did take some genuine consideration about whether to join in or not.
I already had the book (big plus)... so my only stipulation was that I must be able to make the top entirely from my Overload, entirely! Well only a brief browse was needed the other day for me to realise that I can indeed pull enough print fabrics together... so I took out my chosen stitchery fabrics & got cutting...
I even had thread too; a very nice DMC variegated.

It's going to be my 'Fridays Project'... during the day at patchwork group & then later on back at home during the evenings. Easy to take with me & easy to work on.

Thank you for having me.
Happy Stitching!
