Keeping far!

I feel proud of myself this week! 

I've actually kept up with the first month of my latest starts :)

I've already shown you the block that begins the Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day BOM called Fun on the Farm....

I'm still not sure if the piggy block needs some embroidery or not....I'll probably just call it "done" as it is.

I've completed the first block for the Save the Bees sewalong...

I like the embellishing on the Bees block. I think the petals could use a little something, but I'm not quite sure yet what that something is.

I've also finished the first block of my Summertime Sampler, I just need to get some little beads for the eyes.

I also learned something new this week, thanks to a quilty friend of mine. Here I am with my first garlic braid that I've ever done...

Why does this give me such pleasure?,.....I don't know!!!, but it does.

Today I am linking up with Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Fridays and with Confessions of a Fabric Addict for Can I Get a Whoop Whoop?.


  1. neat garlic braid!! I have never done that as I have never grown garlic - I tried a couple times and it rotted in the ground :(

  2. Love the garlic braid! I’ve never made one. Looks like you will have enough garlic to last a while! Fun appliqué projects too. One block per month for each one?

    1. Hmm, that's funny, I didn't get notified of your comment. Yes, each one is one block per month.

  3. Love your Bee block and your hand work is so pretty and even!

  4. Your 'Save the Bees' block is awesome! Glad you are sewing along!
