On to trace the April blocks!
Sunday, March 27, 2011
These little stitcheries are such fun! As you can see I am still stitching my second. I will get these three stitched and start stitching April's, but turning them into blocks will not happen till April because I am going away. No sewing machine, but hopefully lots of stitching will be done! (I will update you by email Chookyblue at the end of the month as to my progress) Keep stitching girls!
I finished stitching them weeks ago & I’ve finished block 3, & nearly block 4, but I got stuck with the borders. It was all very well using a mix of colours but I just couldn’t get the fabrics I chose to work for the borders.
Dd Emma was here yesterday so I asked her opinion. She gave me a great idea for the layout which I would never have thought of, so I’m back in action. My blocks will only have 1 border, the reason will become obvious when the top is finished.
I was really pleased the little penguins were in the first month, they are my fave block. I left out the 3rd of this month’s blocks, it is the 13th I don’t need.
My blocks won’t all have aqua borders. :-)
I decided after doing my 3rd block as per the pattern that I just did not like my results with 4.5 inch stitchery blocks so those 3 blocks have gone aside for another project & here are my 3 new blocks using a 5 inch stitchery centre.
Sorry I haven't followed the list of what block everyone is doing in which month, I never read instructions properly, too enthused to get going...
So that is just 3 completed blocks for me Chooky.
Loving all the great pics, threads & fabric comblinations we are seeing for this project!

It is such a quick project that really there is no excuse for me not to have it finished on time,i love that there is a time limit on the blocks because i will have a wall hanging by the end of the year finished with out much effort, its a great idea doing it slowly through the year it will be finished before i know it.
