Only 2 more blocks or is it 3??

Another update on 'my' Peg's challenge. I have now finished my 7th block YAY!! But, I just was NOT happy with one of the other blocks that I had already done. So, last night after work I un-picked it!! For that particular block I did not use a hoop - it was a little puckery and after it was done the border looked all 'wonky'. I thought if I left it I just would not have been happy with it at all....... so now I have 3 more to go!!! With exactly 2 weeks to go I had better get moving..........

A lovely surprise came to me on Sunday night. This LOVELY bag made by Roseanne. A belated B'day gift. It is a Cinderberry Stitches bag, she made one similar a while ago but with a different stitchery on the front. Usually we make something for each others b'days but this year time was a little streched...... we decided to make something for each other later on in the year, but for a little surprise I made her one of those Little Tidy Bins. She had told me that she was making a bag for a friend and had NO idea it was actually for ME!!


Thanx Roseanne SO much!! I LOVE it!!

x Sarah

PS: Notice the colour has come back in the camera...... weird!!

Your quilt is going to be lovely Sarah. I am glad you unpicked that block as it would have driven you nuts. I have done the same thing and appreciated it later even though at the time it is time consuming to re-do.

I am really enjoying seeing the photos of how you are quilting your Journey of a Quilter. I am stitching block 5 this week, after a rather lengthy break from the project. Seeing your photos is very inspiring and makes me want to pull out my stitching!
Thanks!
