Another Gardeners Journal block complete

At long last here is A Gardener's Journal Block H completed.  I really enjoyed stitching the tools and seed packets in this block, very cute and pretty quick to stitch too.  I'm still a month behind, but have been also getting a few stitches into the big house block which I didn't get done in June, so slow progress is at least still some progress.

Some closeups of the stitcheries.......
And the finished block.....

I've really loved reading the comments about our little corner of the world, we feel we are pretty lucky to be able to do what we do in such a beautiful and special place, so thanks for taking the time to say hello.

Hope your weekend has been enjoyable too, thanks for visiting here ....................till next time,  Nicky

Love the look of that cute stitchery as part of the piecing. This is such a cheerful piece.

Your stitching is beautiful - this is going to be a gorgeous quilt.

I love the close up pics of the stitching. The quilt is going to be a masterpiece!

I'm glad Blu asked about your farm, because I had no clue that you had such a huge operation! I know, clueless me, the title of your blog says it all, but I guess I am a suburbanite enough to think that farm means a few acres and a horse or two. How NEAT! I'm going to have to show my 16 yr old DD. She's decided that her goal is to have a ranch with horses and buffalo on it, with maybe some cattle. I'll have to show her all your sheep pics.

Not bad, for an eleven year old.

That is so pretty Nicky.

Looking great! Those little seed packets are so cute. I loved stitching that block! Actually, I won't forget that block for awhile, when I sent to put the quilt together it was missing - never to be found, so I had to stitch it again!

Suzanne said...

Oh, I love this block, especially the little seed packets, it's beautiful.

Mari said...

You do such neat stitches. Beautiful job! This is going to be a gorgeous quilt.
