This is the Garden I'm talking about.....
In My Garden block of the month. Bet you thought I'd banished this one to the UFO pile... no chance! I did prepare most of the applique pieces for the house and trees a while back. Made it the perfect 'grab n' go" project for a relaxing evening of stitching. That's the largest part of the block finished.
Just in case there wasn't enough applique in the above block able to keep me busy (!) earlier on Friday afternoon I prepped the fence posts and gate ready for stitching. Back stitched the wrought ironwork on the gate too.... ever the optimist eh!
Needless to say the fence is still a work in progress.....
Stitched in the lounge with Mum till 9 pm then took my stitching outside into the Bat Cave for TV time with Mac. The Bat Cave is not the best sewing venue in the world.... it's pitch dark in there. Still Mac must love me really because he let's me sit in his high work chair with one spotlight on to illuminate my work. I get a little patch of sawdust strewn bench to call mine for the evening too.... aren't I the lucky girl !
I did get him to take a photo but can't show you because it's too darned spooky... what with the bat showing up in the picture and the old witch.... hang on... that was me!! Mum is right... I must moisturise more.
That was it for Friday Night. I had a great time yet again Thanks Cheryll for another lovely sew in. Hope Brisbane was as much fun :o)
Thought I'd show you this before I go.....
Well.... I'd better get going. Chris... Sally and me are off on a little Quilt Shop Hop tomorrow so it's an early start for me.
Hope you have something lovely planned for tomorrow......
beautiful blocks !
Well done !
Have a nice day
Love your In My Garden block. I do hope you get you stars blocks sorted for Stonefields. Hugs,xx
Your In my Garden block is beautiful...love the look of the fence under way too! Hee Hee TV time in the bat cave sounds a bit spooky to me!! You will have to show us 'that'photo!! Good luck with that star block...this has to be 'the one'!!
Love your stitchery - that fence looks like quite a bit of work though.
Your Garden Block looks great.
pleased you finally got your star done...
Oh, I love your house block, it's so charming!
always love seeing your gorgeous applique...
you are going great guns with your projects.
hope this latest star block doesn't come under the curse!
what were you thinking drinking bourbon and coke while stitching??
I love that house block. The fence will drive you crazy......I saved the stitching on the gate as a reward for doing the fence posts. Lovely when finished though.
I love your little house but the fence looks a little tedious?! Hope star #5 works out. xx
In My Garden-block looks great!
Good luck stitching all the fence pieces Josie - they look like they'll be fiddly!
Oh Josie I love the house block!!! And the fence is so neat! Does this all go in the same quilt? Bats? No way I would be in the same area. Your kidding right?
It's a lovely garden to play in! With full trees no less! Surprised you haven't snuck a few logs into the block ;) Ooh and they say romance is dead? What a lovely man :) Well done on perservering through version 5, hope it's still safe and well :)
I love your garden block :-)
Beautiful blocks Josie, I LOVE the house and trees block! Just gorgeous!! Hugs Wendy
Hehehe drinking and stitching don't mix. You poor love. It's a wonder I didn't hear you scream from here! Love your house and garden appliques. Quite inspiring actually. I think you msy need to buy yourself an Ott Lite so you can see what you are stitching in the cave.
Hahaha! Such a funny post. We have all been there with blocks that have to be done over again - although - I haven't spilled bourbon on mine before. I better watch out now, I may have jinx it and I'll spill my vodka and orange juice. Oh - I love that 5th block!! Very pretty!!
