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,


  1. Your No 5 looks great. I am still on 1. Maybe I could get you to stitch mine if only I didn't live sew far away..
    You are keeping very busy working on sew many projects..
    I bet the jumper out of Jacks wool will be lovely and soft.

  2. Lovely projects Clare. Poor Jack...looks but I bet his wool will be soft! :)

  3. Sweet stitches...

  4. Gorgeous stitching. I can't wait to see the cardigan that will come from Jack's wool.

  5. The hollyhocks look so sweet. Please post a pic of the entire block next time-I love to see them! I just got block 4 last week.

  7. Neat to see your projects, Clare. It looks like you are keeping up well! Good on hubby using the hand clippers!!

  8. Beautiful comment, I knit too. I imagine it must be very nice to get a freshly shorn wool sweater.
