Monday Musings

What have I been upto, well firstly, on Friday night I got busy and made the second block from my BOM Sampler, thought I better have shown willing for the club members. They were quietly enthusiastic about this one and the Birdie stitches.

First block in my designed patchwork club sampler Block 1

2nd block in my patchwork club #bom #samplerBlock 2

I put a call out on flickr, Instagram, twitter and facebook to see if anyone had a charm pack of Frolic, (I'd sewn up the border on the block before checking that I had enough of a mix to frame all the blocks with it) luckily I've sourced one from a FQR buddy :)

Come on Perle cotton I want to start stitching #hurryuppostman
I'm really frustrated because I'm waiting on 50 balls of Perle Cotton and the postman is being really really slow delivering it to me, :(

On Saturday, mum and dad took the kids out for lunch and some shopping so I had a go on the frame, I practiced what trudi had taught us on retreat and read through some books, got busy with e's & l's, interlocking hearts and more dragon's.
Someone likes today's practice

Bonnie is happy now as she has a large area to lie on now, especially as the kitties have taken over her bed,

oh and my frame !!!! Can I just add, I'm loving the Aurifil poly, it hasn't broken on me once, fab tension with the bottom line bobbin thread....so worth begging Alex@aurifil to bring some over to London, just kicking myself now I didn't buy more... oh well,

Until tomorrow, :)

  1. love the blocks and the little picture for embroidery is so cute. Wonder where you get your perle from, I get mine from sewandso and they come return post, usually buy DMC but now they have deleated all but 2 of their variegated ones I have been getting finca which comes in an even finer on a 16 and all the colours are available in each thickness, sorry seem to have prattled on a bit!!

  2. What great blocks I have so much thread I tend to buy when I see some. I must stop but it is a family trait. I still have thread my grandmother brought and 2 of my great aunts and Mum's so there is no chance for me and that is my excuse and I am sticking to it.
