It can only be full steam ahead from now on :)
Oh no photo wouldn`t turn. The flower block has words `a garden to look out on`. Hubby does the garden as he enjoys being out there. I help by bringing the plants home. Some have been brought,others given to us.
As you can see I`ve added my patchwork sections and at the top of my house block shows my top border so up to date with March blocks, so amazing with the week we`ve had.
Happy Stitching and thankyou for your lovely comments of my work.

I'm moving slowly but at least I'm moving, right! ;) I finally got started on my way on my SKOW this past weekend.
I'm hoping to begin stitching these blocks tomorrow. This weekend I'm hoping to get the rest of the applique/stitching blocks ready and then I'll cut all the blocks and strips for the rest of the quilt. I wanted to wait and cut the rest until I see what fabric I'll use on the applique/stitching blocks to make sure the colors blend well and there's a cohesiveness to the quilt. Does that make sense? I hope so! :)
I love all the progress I've been seeing here! You guys are doing an awesome job! Hope I get caught up real quick. Keep your fingers crossed for me! :)
Until next time . . .

Here is my March section, finished....I have April done except for the strip......I changed "Gardening All Day" to "Growing Flowers" which is what I do because I enjoy the beauty....I do not enjoy gardening....I tried to make my house look like the one we live in with red brick and a red roof...We do not live in a 2 story but I didn't want to change that too much...
On the circle flowers, I learned that if I make a running stitch and kind of gather the ends, it helps to turn them under. I added a button for the center of the daisy.....In the next section, I plan to do a bear where the shoes are....

Well it sure has had me testy for want of better words…but I managed to get my second row of blocks completed, my arm is not playing nice and the smaller pieces are very hard..I may end up substituting buttons for them wee bits as I go along as I do not wish for frustration turning this beautiful project into a UFO..I am so enjoying seeing all the different colour variations we have amongst the group it is awesome.
