Projects coming together.

All the lettering blocks of the alphabet quilt are now done with only the borders to do. I have 
downloaded the instructions ( all "36"pages) "help" and I am not even going to look at them until I return from our vacation.

I do like the red and cream colour way I chose, and it has used up loads of my stash, but the borders have loads of appliqué sheep and trees. Red trees and sheep? I hear you say. Oh! Well, we shall see. 

There is one pink sheep in letter J, and I think he looks OK .
This was a BOM from The Quilt Show  Designed by Janet Stone.

Our sew a row Charity quilt is coming along nicely. Each participant sews a row and adds it on to the last one. Jenny is the next one to have it and then I think Liz. It will be sandwiched up with batting/wadding and backing and then each person will quilt their row.

It has been a good group project, fun to see what every one will add, Alison's cats are great :0))

 The hall we hold our  Sewing Bee in, belongs to Wickham Market Church and is aptly named 
"The Bee Hive"
Where it got that name no one seems to know, but it's a great name for us.

 Yesterday Ann was making a bed runner for her daughters bed. This is a flat shot as the 10" squares are not yet put together. This looks like another good stash buster, It's done onto a thin paper, centre strip first, then sew and flip both ways and then the paper is removed.
Got to give this a go..

Now to write up a tutorial for my ST2 block for next month as I am the Mama for Nov and I can go with a clear conscience.    

Keep safe and keep stitching...................Doti...
