I don't know about you but I find stitching to be very therapeutic and find I get quite restless if I cannot just sit and sew. We have had quite a few hot summer days here which meant that I couldn't stitch as it was far too sticky  despite a fan blowing on me.  I did, however get quite a bit done between these very hot days and at my quilting groups.  I have now completed 3 stitchery blocks for Bronwyn Haye's "Cotton Country" and the above photo is the block I am currently doing. Instead of redwork I have chosen to work with Cottage Garden threads, a different colour for each sticthery.

I have also made an effort to get ahead with upcomming birthday pressies. Here is a sneak peek of 2 that I have made.

Sorry, can't show you any more, The birthday girls might see!!!

My "In Full Bloom" quilt is still in progress and I am now piecing the strips of blocks together. So, it should come together soon. That's the plan.

Meanwhile, the weather has become much cooler and I hope to keep stitching the days away. To all those who live in the flooded areas, I send you many angel blessings.
