Tis the Season blocks

Here are the last four of my Tis the Season blocks finished up.  Now I need to join them all together and get it finished up before the end of September so as not to be the last to finish this quilt over at the Stitch-A-Long blog where we've been stitching this since March.  I am one of the few slackers slower stitchers who still haven't finished their A Gardener's Journal quilts from last year, so I don't want to be in the same boat this time around!  In the final photo I'm showing some rather wrinkly progress of the stitchery for my final AGJ block.  I've been trying to put a few stitches in here and there so I can get it finally finished.


It's been a fairly awful week of rain, hail and cold winds, not the ideal weather for lambing, but not quite as bad as last year ....... yet.  The sun is out today though, so it would be great if it hangs around for the next few weeks at least.  

Till next time ................................. happy stitching........... Nicky

Gorgeous Tis the Season blocks. Love the fabrics you chose too. Very classy! You just reminded me of my pact to finish up BG and start AGJ..... oh dear!

Raewyn said...

Your blocks and fabric are gorgeous. Nothing like a challenge and self-imposed punishment (oh no I'm the last one finished!) to motivate us! Fingers crossed for more sunshine for you today.

Carol said...

Oh, they're all so pretty and beautifully stitched, Nicky!! Can't wait to see them all joined together in a quilt...

I do hope your weather improves both for your sake and the little lambs :)

Such lovely blocks Nicky - your TIS is going to be so pretty, and you will finish AGJ sooner rather than later.
