Hello my friends.
I`m joining in online for Chookyblues `Party Time`.
We have a long weekend so my sewing machine`s
 been humming today and will till sometime Monday for this Party.


Preparing some blocks for my 
`Coming Home` quilt
by Sarah Fielke for 2019.
Pressing with my cute little iron which save`s putting up
 the ironing board. :)
These blocks are going four sides of the next border.


I`m a little behind on the quilt,
but that`s alright. It`s coming together.


I have been having fun going through my fabric stash.
This flower has been added to the corners.


I wonder what I will decide to sew tomorrow after
going to the first church service.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

A last block and a first block.

Hello my friends,
This is the last block of $25 with
`Delbrook`.
I have sorted with Christine my layout to finish.
So now the wait while everyone else making theirs chooses
their layout ,then fabric`s can be ordered.


I am looking forward to putting this quilt together 
and working out how to quilt.

of my friend Katrina`s birthday gift.

A little progress.

Hello my friends.
A little progress on
`I belong to a cross stitch nation`.
I am still fixing mistake but know where that can be sorted. 


Please visit these delightful blogs at what each of us are working on.

This is the latest `Circle of friends` kit.

the long way. After it arrived in Chicago USA, it travelled to
Switzerland,Thailand then onto Auckland New Zealand.
