stitching and beeing



I've finally started my S is for Stitch blocks and trying to catch up with the ABC BOW, they are on 'O' now. Although I will probably try to overtake them since it's going to be for a baby due late this month.

I've had issues with my bee blocks from December. I actually finished these Scrap Jar Stars last month and thought I'd posted them but found them today. So sorry Janet, the good news is I'd forgotten the siggy so I did that today and they'll be in the post tomorrow!


I also had endless problems with my Simply Solids bee block, cut some bad snowflakes, then ironed the fusible web to the wrong fabric, then ran out of fusible web. All my silly mistakes, anyway it's done now Jo, I hope you like it!

  2. Hi Lucy! I passed through London last week and thought of you, though I know you're not right there it was nice to think about! :) Your bee blocks look great and I have a feeling that those snowflakes would have given me the fits.

  3. I've done that with bee blocks. Gone looking for something else, lifted up a pile of fabric and thought - oh no! Nice blocks though.

  6. We have been doing parallel sewing, I love you S is for Stitch blocks, mine are all done, I just need to do the central embroidery (from a family picture drawn by my little one) and then I can put it together for the nursery wall :o) Good Luck with yours. And I have been struggling to face the snowflakes, I will do them this week, then on to your lovely chevron blocks I go. x
