Some progress...and a quilt finally hung!

I finally found time to hang my lovely "Your home or mine" quilt, a design by Lynette Anderson, (I have added that for Deb as I was unable to access your profile to send you an email) on the wall. I had my Leanne Beasley's Journey of a Quilter here and it was hard to take that one down. It is in the sewing room so I can still see it! This quilt does deserve to hang in pride of place in the entry and I am pleased with how it looks.
I am enjoying working on this "My Garden" block. I had to take my time with the satin stitch but am very pleased with the result.
My scarf is growing slowly too and is now 38" long! I thought it looked much longer than that. The pattern says to knit it 80" long! Luckily, I am short so mine won't need to be that long.
I did finish the weeding the garden block. I stitched her dress in pink instead of blue accidentally. I should take more care reading the instructions. I had finished the dress when I discovered my mistake so have decided to leave it pink.

The quilt looks wonderful and I love the scarf. Am hoping to get the pix on the Gardener's Journal quilt finished by the time you get here, but not doing too well atm. Am VERY impressed you have done the 1st month of the new quilt, haven't even started and I have the fabrics from the shop in Wales and so not that excuse, but thanks for putting up the unfinsihed photo -I'm not good at reading instructions - as you know!

The quilt looks great on the wall. Isn't it a problem when you don't have enough wall space to hang everything you want to? Between my husband's movie posters, our mutual choice of oil paintings by local artists, and my framed embroideries and patchwork wall hangings...we need something the size of the Taj Mahal!
Love the stitchery of the lady weeding the garden - how cute!
