Monthly blocks and Jack.

Hello my friends.
I have time for a short visit, please do join me.
These are this months blocks from `The Country Yard`.
Lynette Andersons `Chateau Hexagon` month 5 `Hollyhocks & Roses`.

This is the whole of block # 5

I stitched the centres of Hollyhocks with bullion knots using
 DMCs so to be finer stitches.
This was not in the pattern but I had space to do this.

Next: Mystery month eight `Care, Trust`.
I wonder what will be next!

And then:`A Christmas Noel` mystery month two.
Plum Pudding House.
So nice working with these threads and I love the peeper border.

This is the wool that hubby, using hand clippers took off Jack.
I will take it in to be carded.
 Then we will spin it ready for me to knit a lovely cardigan  for me
using Jacks first fleece of lambs wool.
Sheepos  one is wearing out.

Jack shows that he has long legs now his winter fleece is off.
Well must more on.
Thank you for visiting and hope you will come again.
Your comments are like we have been visiting together.
Happy Stitching,

A little peep

Well hello my friends.
This month has come on me so quickly and the weeks have gone by.
I have had hubby on holiday so my time table has changed a bit.
A quick visit today as I`m busy with some other finishing.
I was sewing this:

`Spooling around` 
From Terri Degenkolb book `Just Spooling Around`
I brought the book with a kit for that quilt  from `The Country Yard`
 plus a cushion kit as well sometime ago.
The cushions already to put together.
There is some clutter round my sewing machine!
So when I have a few minutes I sit at my machine and sew a few spools together.
I also need to take more photos so will come back in a few days.
Thank you for stopping by.
Happy Stitching,
