I've joined!

While playing around with my Gardeners' Journal fabrics this afternoon, I made a very exciting discovery....

...I can join two completed blocks together! My little quilt is starting to grow...now that is what I call progress! Another exciting discovery I made today... (are you managing to contain your excitement?LOL)


...is that with the completion of these two stitcheries, I am officially half finished my blocks! WOOOOOOOHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Here's a close up...
This one's called...interestingly enough..."basket of flowers", and the birdfeeder is called "dovecote"...

Where am I finding the time for all this stitching, you may ask? Well, we are counting down till the beginning of the Australian National Gymnastics Championships in Adelaide next week, and that means I am sitting in on lots of additional trampoline training sessions with my son. I sit and I stitch...and I stitch and I sit...and am often surprised how much I can achieve in a single session ! Find time where you can :)

What great progress you are making Susan! Can't wait to see the blocks in the second half.

Bet Riley is starting to get excited about his trip next week. Glad you are putting the practice sessions to good use.
