And I see that it is now two weeks since my last post - how did that happen?
Anyway, I am here again now and after a couple of weeks of dodgy weather we are back into a canicule (heatwave). Temperatures are set to be 30+ all this week!
So back to business as I have a few things to show you.
First of all thank you to Anthea for hosting our link up - you can go to Anthea's blog here to see what everyone is working on.
First up is my DMTV Stitchalong bookwrap which has now reached this stage.
I have added lots of green seeding to the green areas.
The last stage before I make it up is to add some beads.
I have finished making all the blocks for the border of my Hexathon quilt.
I now need to lay everything out and work out their positions.
In the post today I received some lovely swap hexies.
These are from Wendy of Sugarlane Designs - even her card matches in well with the hexies! Thank you Wendy.
So that is all I have for EPP Tuesday, now on to other things.
I have started crocheting squares. Wot me, crocheting Granny squares! Whatever next! Well, I had a lovely bag of wool and cotton left over from my Hygge shawl and I was wondering what to do with them when along came Sharm from Country Fragrance with a CAL for a Flower Garden blanket and I couldn't resist having a go. At the moment I am just aiming to make the flower blocks as I don't know how far my supplies will go. Here are my first blocks.
They grey border is my wool yarn, the colours are all cottons. It does not show up too well in my photo but the centre petals are raised. It's a nice simple pattern.
Finally, in case you have not heard, the Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade is returning next month.
For more information see here.
So that is all my news for now. We have a small person here with her parents taking up a lot of my time at the moment so I am mostly catching up with small hand stitching projects. Plus we have a plumbing crisis today! - it never rains but it pours. Hope you are having a great week.
