Summer Days

Yesterday was the day for sorting and packing up swaps ready for posting.  The needle case is finished and packed, photos once it reaches it's new home.

Next were the blocks for the Barn Door Swaps.  Unfortunately. the other blocks got packed before I remembered the photos.

This was all done in time for the start of the grand prix.  Then it was time to sit and finish the back stitching and french knots on the cross stitch.
That's both the stitched pieces done, now is the time to choose the fabric to make them into a wall hanging.  I have some ideas, but it may be a little time before it gets finished.  I am determined to shrink the pile next to my sewing table first.

The pile next to my sewing machine keeps growing not shrinking, so I wish you luck with that :)

How can there be a pile? You are always finishing something new.
Like the sunny days. Enjoy your week!!

Great job getting things finished.

Pretty block! And good for you finishing off the cross stitch piece. :0)

Love the delicate colours of the block and the cross stitch is just delightful. You have been busy.
