On Saturday I had a super sewing day with my friend Denise. I took my set of patterns of JOAQ (designed by Leanne Beasley, and bought online back in July from Cross Patch in Wales) along with the fabrics and made a start on cutting out all the pieces ready make the block. There was lots of chatting, so the progress was rather slow in the morning!...
...however after lunch I manged to speed up, and traced the stitchery designs onto the fabric, and stitched the 4 mini blocks together. I made a start on the stitchery, and I've spent the past few evenings embroidering these pretty designs...
...and here it is completed. This project is beginning to look very pretty, and so far I've resisted the urge to sew the first 3 blocks together into row 1, but I'm not sure if I can resist for much longer!
