Stitching progress

Finally, time to do a post about stitching! I did take lots of stitching away with me on holidays and managed to do some.There was a bit of secret stitching for the coming retreat (less than 2 weeks away) and I also worked on this Christmas stitchery and the first two blocks of the Scandinavian Rose BOM by Rosalie Quinlan.

 This block is still a work in progress.
Since coming home I have started Chateau Hexagon, the mystery BOM with a painted button by Lynette Anderson.  I have done 2 of these before and they turned out very well and were fun to do. Hobbysew, where I work, has this at the shop so it was easy to order. I think they still have a few places if anyone is still wanting to do this BOM. Here is block 1. I have started block 2 which is the block for July.
I went to work last week after such a long break and it was lovely to catch up with the stitching girls on Tuesday and to catch up with the Wednesday ladies too. They have been very busy! Here are some quilts the ladies have been making. Shirley has made this lovely quilt for her granddaughter.
 Sandra has been very busy with this cnadlewicked and coloured quilt.
 Barb has made this great quilt for a man.
 Sheila has also almost bound her quilt too. Looks great.
 On Wednesday, Doreen was putting the finishing touches to this lovely little crocheted purse.
It is nice to share some sewing again. I have been busy this last week finishing notes and making kits for the retreat. This Thursday I am off to Melbourne to a day of stitching with Leanne Beasley on Saturday and the Melbourne craft show on Friday! How exciting!

You've been very productive since you got back home! What a pity you are going to the craft show on Friday - I'll be on duty at the
Embroiderers Guild stand all day on Thursday. It would have been great to meet you. Hope you enjoy the show!
