Third time lucky!

I was beginning to think I'd never see the day I'd be able to show you this.....
 


My Vignette in Stitches.. Block 1... Version 3 is finally out of the hoop.    At last I can move on...... to blocks 2 & 3.

Speaking of the next two blocks......


Click on the photo and you can see that all of the tracing is done and I'm ready for the next marathon stitch in .... a whole yard of it!   I'm really looking forward to it.  After all... nothing can go wrong with this one... right?

I'm planning a real 'stitch fest' on Friday.  The Royal Wedding is the perfect excuse to spend the day in front of the TV stitching flowers and butterflies.    Looks like it's shaping up to be a dawn till dusk affair so I should get lots done.... fingers crossed. 

A few hexies have been turned into flowers too......


Not exactly a huge bouquet but I have to say paper piecing is hard to do when your nose won't stop running... didn't want to risk over watering the flowers!  I just realised my nose is the only part of me that's been exercising lately.   Note to self..... get off your bum and go dig in the garden!  Now!!

Here's a photo of Licky Lou.... Space Cadet!


She had a steroid shot a couple of weeks ago for her pollen allergies and has been spaced out ever since.   I certainly won't be taking her for any more of those jags.  Poor little thing.... she's really off the planet.  Can't tell up from down and just sits staring into space.    Come to think of it.... we've got a lot in common Licky and me

Till next time.....
