I'm still here...so sorry I have been absent from bogland!

I owe you all an apology as I was gone for so long with no reasons...just excuses!  I had my quilt done in February but my daily life got in the way and I forgot to tell Susan and Chooky that I am allergic to binding.  I am also allergic to dust so I am in big trouble as my quilt has been sitting in one spot for almost 3 months.  I am feeling ashamed.  Thank you Chooky and Susan for not giving up on me and for encouraging me to come back to blog land.  I'll be back soon.

I am very behind in posting my SAL blocks for May, June and now July...yikes!

I am so bad at blogging but I am promise to catch up and stay in tune!

I have especially enjoyed making July's block as I took it with me to stitch on our trip to Australia!  What an amazing trip it was!  I am getting my pictures ready to post so stay tuned...


                                                         

June blocks...love making hexies!



May blocks...love each one of these blocks.  I do need to hurry up and put legs and heads on my ladybugs though!  Yikes!

Just for laughs...


Natures Journey SAL - April blocks

On time with days to spare...but I must remember to post on both my blog and Chooky/Sue's SAL blog!  I get so excited about just finishing my blocks that the posting tends to get delayed.  Well with no further delay I now present Aprils blocks.....

WAIT...something is wrong!  Oh no, I forgot there was an email from The Patchwork Angel regarding an error in the pattern.  Oh my...but I love this star!  As suggested by Chooky I will rework it into my label. 

That's better!  The smaller version is so cute!  I really enjoyed the English paper piecing method.
And now for the rest of my April blocks.

Natures Journey SAL - March blocks

Wow...where are the days going?  A very late post for my March blocks!
My stars where inadvertently sewn just a little wonky.  I really don't know how that happened.  But that's okay....life is wonky these days.  LOL

2015 SAL Natures Journey

It has been quite some time since I last posted. Life just seems to fly by. Although I did not post I have actually finished quite a few quilting projects since the last SAL.
I am so excited to be part of Chookyblue's Stich-Along this year. We are stitching Natures Journey by Annie Downs this time.  I absolutely love this pattern. This is my first attempt at appliqueing using the applique paper, Roxanne's glue and for now chop sticks! Lol. I hope to have my Lynette Anderson aplisticks for our next months assignment. In the past I have always used the raw edge applique method. I am confident now to move on to this more difficult method. It was a challenge but I think I did okay?!  I am pleased with the outcome on my February blocks.
Happy stitching girls!

Presenting........Hannah & Harrington

This is a free BOM pattern from Raspberry Rabbits.  I absolutely loved working on this project.  I will be adding black boarders to it soon, I just need to find the perfect fabric.  The sashing is primative gatherings so I would like to find more of that fabric for the sashing.
