Sinta has been hosting this for a while now (Pretty sure we are talking at least 6 months). I have been reading and achieving nothing.
This week is different! (slightly)

I ordered and received the last 2 copies of Vignette in Stitches (the magazine is continuing but these are the last two that have instructions for the blocks for the Vignette Mystery Quilt).  I also ordered the extra thread pack and a half a metre of pink gingham that looked cute and was on sale.  If you are interested in Vignette in Stitches (the magazine) and don’t have a supplier yet, my source, Perri at Stitches in the Bush in QLD is highly recommended.  She packages beautifully, has great prices and fantastic deals on postage and buying from her store makes me smile.  I also got a few cute charms in the last order as a gift which I loved.

Anyway… shopping isn’t working on your BOM quilt Q…. Okay… OK

But I am hoping that cutting counts.  First up I had to reunite myself with my older blocks and check where I was up to (yes, it really has been a while!)

Issue 1 – Block 1 – Done
Issue 2 – Blocks 2 and 3 – Done
Issue 3 – Blocks 4, 5 and 9 – Stitching Done, Partially Pieced – I have completed the Shoofly Blocks but not added them to the Blocks
Issue 4- Blocks 8 and 12
Issue 5- Blocks 6 and 7
Issue 6- Blocks 10 and 11
Issue 7- Blocks 13 and 16
Issue 8- Blocks 14 and 15

So… not even halfway sheesh 🙁

here is a refresher of what some of the blocks look like, so you can see the amount of work

I started with all the cutting initially to get into the swing of things, so my cut pieces have gone from this

So I am still counting this as a win for my Block of the Month Re-hab. And am looking forward to getting back into things!

Goodnight Stitchers, Wherever you are!
