Stitching the week away and what next?

This week has been a little stitching on a lot of projects.
Here is a round up.

I have finished the hand quilting on three blocks .... only 6 to go!

Vignette Mystery Quilt

Still plodding away at blocks 8 and 12
I want these finished so I can get back to the centre blocks
This section truly does feel like it is taking forever to do.

As part of the Little Bit French Swap Cheryl over at Willowberry Designs is sharing
a pattern a month and this week I have finished the first two designs and made a start on the next one.
Here are the first two.

And the mail man was super kind to me this week :o)

I am now ready to start my next project in the

with the arrival of my pink solid fabric.

Just need to get out and buy a new blade before
 I attempt to cut all this fabric up.


Also arriving this week was my first button and fabric pack for
Lynette Anderson's new Mystery Button Club, Fernhill.
I am loving the colours in this one and as much as I would love to start it now
I really think I need to finish something off ... lol

I would like to thank everyone who sent an email on our loss of our beautiful Pug Molly.
Your words and thoughts mean so much, thank you.
16 years with this beautiful girl and I miss her so much.
I have so many memories of her that I will cherish forever. xx

and just to top off the week that was..

I spent 5 hours at the hospital last night with son no 2.
He injured his knee yesterday at school and is now in a brace and on crutches.
The tendon has become detached from his knee cap and he has a couple of small bone chips floating around.  I am awaiting a phone call from the Orthopaedic surgeon this morning.
Possible MRI and surgery.

Don't think he will be playing much football this season :o(

Arggh    ...... this is a week I don't want repeated.
Thank you for stopping by,
I think I might just go and grab another strong coffee
and start that Hopscotch quilt :o)
hugs, Sharon
