A Gardeners Journal May block .................

Just in the nick of time, I finished my May block for AGJ Stitch Along last night.  Nothing like leaving things till the last day is there?  I had to wait till today to get some photos though.
 
 
 
 
I'm undecided whether I will carry on with the plan to do Block C or head somewhere else on the quilt.  Not sure if I am in the right mental state for the huge stitchery(huge to me anyway!) that is scheduled for this month.  Either way I will endeavour to complete one for the month.  This has been such a great way to get motivated to get some stitching done.

It's been a busy time here on the farm, lots of putting up electric fences for the ewes, feeding out baleage to cattle, and weighing the last few hundred lambs.  Our last draft of lambs are leaving tomorrow, so we've been dagging them today.  It will be great to see them on the truck, as the colder weather has slowed down the grass growth considerably, and we need to  free up some of the lamb paddocks for the ewes to graze through the winter.   We have had a couple of hard frosts followed by gorgeous sunny days, not very warm, but at least not raining!

Here is a wee look at what Misses 7 and 9 were making for dinner last night - home made pizzas. They made their own personal ones, and then we did another big one as well - they always eat better if they had some part in making it I've noticed!  Sorry no after photos, they came out of the oven and were practically inhaled by the girls on the spot....... when I remembered about the camera it was all over!
As ever, thanks for stopping by, it is nice to know I'm not just talking to myself ................ though I do a bit of that too sometimes. lol

Your quilt is turning out so well. It`s so beautiful. I have sewn miss hat on a pocket on a bag for mom Christmas 2008. She loved it. You could start to put together block c, all the bits and drawings, then skip to another block. So you can stitch on the big one when you're in "the mood", an stitch the small ones on the go....

The pizzas looks delicious..... yum....

All well hk

your GJ block looks great.......if you can't cope with block C now move onto something else........I threw it in early to get it out of the way but maybe slip into a few more smaller stitcheries and you will be able to tackle it later.......
