A week is a bit longer than normal for me to not post, so I just wanted you all to know, I am still here.

My life has been unceremoniously distracted by a boy man though, not that I get distra… “Oh look bright shiny lights!”.  Rachel from My Friend Charlie and Co has already remarked that she isn’t sure that this is going to be good for my stitching.  But I did do some, honest.

Look Shoofly Partytime:

I didn’t do exactly the same shoofly’s as Leanne’s example, as I wanted to use 2 different colours rather than light and dark of the same, but I did use the same fabrics. I have 2 blocks left to do of the 16 I started. 8 of them will be attached to Block 1.  The stitching only needs to have the butterflies completed, then I will have completed Block 1.

so.. you see, I’m still sort of close to my machine. I am going away for this long weekend and will not be doing any stitching, but I’m sure my work will pick up again soon after. Hope all is going well in your world, whether it’s stitching related or not 😀
