1 Step Forward, 2 Steps Back

At least that's what it feels like this month ... I just don't seem to be able to keep in a forward motion but I am making small steps in the right direction.

First I finished off another dish cloth to add to mum's gift for Mothers Day. 

My computer went to the Dr for a day trip and ended up staying there for a week before I could get back to town to pick it up. On the up side these 2 golden sheenas got a much needed pruning.

Another 2 blocks for LMF are in the completed pile.

A visit from a cruel stomach bug has wiped out the last week and food is still not high on my agenda. Hubby had a visit from the bug a couple of days after me so things have been very steady around seemed to sap every last ounce of energy. Poor Millie thinks we're both very boring and has taken to dragging her bed around the house for something to do.

Yesterday I pottered about with some fabric and prepared another 1 and a half LMF blocks (ran out of vliesofix). Then dug out a tea towel, a fat 1/4 and 2 buttons and made these hand towels for my Christmas Gift Box. I can see more getting made thanks to Cheryll's tutorial.

If you visit our 1 Xmas Item a Month blog you'll find lots of great gift and decoration ideas from the clever Elves.

My plan is to put my feet up and do some more blanket stitch applique today...what are your weekend plans?

FNWF and My Garden Now

These 1st Fridays of the month are coming around way too fast ... good thing they are a great night out/in! Thanks for hosting Cheryll.

Look what all the beautiful rain has done for my garden. A shame these roses were 1 week late to enter in the show but I still get to enjoy them.


An unwelcome visitor!

This little lady is now 10 1/2 weeks old and loves being out and about outdoors. As you can see the rain makes the weeks grow too.

Happy Friday night sewing.     >^..^<
