Relics from Yesteryear

Hello my friends.
This month has been busy with appointments.
Hubby is allowed light duties but not at work.
He`s waiting on another eye operation,
which we will find out when this happens when we go next month to see surgeon.
I am in another `Mystery BOM` with 
The Country Yard.
`Relics from Yesteryear`
Main design -Cottage Garden Thread 507 Rusty Gate.
Inner solid border-Auriful 1285 (a dark brown).
Outer border-Cottage Garden Thread 310 Carrot Seed.

A Penny farthing bike for block one.
Worked in back stitch.

Block two is the older telephone.
I have used chain stitch for the heavy cord,
some satin stitch for dials and the rest is back stitch.
One of the farms we lived on in our early years of marriage
had this phone (used as party line for round the farm)
 beside a more modern one general calls. 

A pile of antique suitcases for block three.
Worked in back stitch and running stitch.
As you can see I have been slow showing these.
I look forward to next months block.

Who is hiding behind the drapes?
Our Tilly. 

You can see whats she`s up to with big brother.

I can see you :)

I will be catching up with you in a few days.
Thank you for your visit.
Happy Stitching,
