I am ready to stitch .......

and I am also doing a little happy dance in celebration!!! lol

Why you may ask...... because I have done what I originally set out to do and that is get blocks 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 9 ready to stitch before the next issue of the Vignette in Stitches magazine hits the shops this week.

Ahh, I feel like I can take a deep breath now :o)

I have it all up on my design wall, want to see?

Vignette in Stitches Mystery Quilt
Blocks 1 - 5 and 9

I am loving these bright colors, not something I would normally work with and am loving it.

I have no idea how long this is going to take me now to stitch but I will guess that it will be a long time and the fact that the weather here is beautiful as we head into Spring I will not be setting myself any more deadlines on this one.  It will be slow and steady with the aim of enjoying the process.

The only deadline I am setting myself over the warmer months will be in relation to my Farmer's Wife Quilt ........... two blocks a week and try to keep up to date with Miss L's Once Upon a Time BOM.

Everything else will all be in it's own time :o)

If you are thinking about starting this quilt but are a little hesitant, don't be, give it a go.

Enjoy your stitching,


  1. Sharon, it looks lovely so far. I hear that the stitchery takes ages though! Good luck.

  2. Sharon, you are amazing, you have done such a great job in getting all the blocks ready. I am starting to piece and trace blocks 5 and 9.

  3. Hi Sharon,
    found your page from the link for small blogs on Lily's Quilts. Love all your quilts and blocks. Wish I was as good.
