One block left now ....

 After some *gentle encouragement*  from Chookyblue, I have now pieced my second to last A Gardeners Journal block and here it is.................Block F............. but that very last block is still quite a way off finished.
 Over the weekend I also finished up Virtues Sampler by Little House Needleworks.  This is now in my rather large pile of finished cross stitch to be framed.



 And while I was busy on the machine I pieced the first block of my Butterfly Garden, I'm pretty pleased with how it's looking, and I've finished a couple more miniblocks during the last few days.

So now I need to catch up on this months Tis the Season and Birdie Stitches blocks...................I don't want to fall behind ............. again!

I hope you're having a great week, thanks for visiting me today, it's lovely to *see* you ................ till next time ................Nicky

Each and every finished project is lovely, Nicky! The LHN Virtues sampler is so pretty--I'm glad I'm not the only one with a pile of finishes that needs to be framed!! I guess for me, the joy is in the stitching. I'm going to make a serious attempt to get some of these finishes framed by the end of the year, though. They are too pretty to remain buried for too long :)

Hope you are having a lovely autumn--almost winter!!--there in New Zealand :)

The Gardener's Journal quilt is really one of my favorites. Yours is looking so good!

The LHN Sampler looks great with those pretty hand-dyed threads.

You've really been a busy beaver, finishing that Butterfly block too!

I guess the cooler days must be keeping you inside more.

Valerie said...

Gorgeous stuff I'm loving the butterflies.I've taken on board your very kind comment about my knitting needle obsession and of course you are right. If that day comes you know I got the knitting needles and crochet hooks so you know where to come for your supplies.
