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.


  1. Lucky birthday girls. Your stitcheries are lovely.

  2. Lovely work Ondrea. I especially love the multi coloured sneak peek piece and your quilt in progress looks great too.

  3. Gorgeous work, Ondrea. Those " In Full Bloom" stitcheries look so pretty. Who is the designer?

  4. You have been very busy despite all the heat. Those secret stitcheries are just gorgeous. Lucky recipients.

  5. You are sooooo busy just love it. Your work is so pretty and I just love Bronwyn Hayes work.

  6. You've had lots of progress with your stitching. I to find it very relaxing and need to have some ready when I sit and watch a movie.
