BBD progress

A progress pic of the latest BBD Loose Feathers to share this time round. I was thinking that I really hadn’t made much progress as I’ve only been able to snatch a little bit of time every day to pick this one up. Then I looked at what I’d shared last time and realised that I had done more than I thought I had. Do you ever find that? You may think that you haven’t done much but then you look back and realise that, in fact, even though you didn’t feel like you stitched much you’ve done more than you thought!



At the weekend I did finally work on the next block of PS 12 Days of Christmas and now have the 6th block completed. That still means I’m behind on my self-imposed schedule of a block a month but, at least I’m not heading into August and getting further behind! Here it is in all its glory with its companions!

Thanks for all the lovely comments last time around. I know many of you are sweltering in heat that would be unheard of here and which, if we did have, would likely make us all just melt!! We’ve had a few nicer days lately so that is making a lovely change from all the cloud and rain. DH and I have upcoming plans to head over to England to visit our daughter and youngest son. We're both looking forward to spending a few days with each of them and hoping that the weather will be nice!


Until next time …..

You really have made good progress. I just started a BBD piece myself. It's the first one I've ever stitched and I'm really enjoying it.

Love that PS block with the little egg in the corner!

Enjoy your trip!

Beautiful progress on your BBD! I just love that berry. You can't go wrong with a BBD! Love the PS, too. I am so impressed with your stick-with-it-ness, but I think I tell you that everytime you post one of your monthly accomplishments. ;)

Enjoy your trip and the time with the kids!

Your BBD is looking wonderful. I kept thinking I didn;t really need it but may have to give in and get it, especially as our exchange is so good at present.

I hope you have a great time visiting your children. (I thought you lived in England.).

Absolutely lovely, Lois--I know I'm going to have to break down and get this one for myself, too. I love everything about it :)

Glad you're keeping up with your PS 12 Days, as well. They'll look so cute all finished up and displayed together.

I know you're looking forward to your trip to England--enjoy the time with the "kids" and travel safely...

Berit said...

I too am piling up a stack of PS ornies (half autumn, half Christmas) over here, and boy is it fun! Now, if only I could get some finishing mojo! Your 12 days is looking great, and I think it is wonderful to have 6 done even if it makes you two behind. Umn, hello! You have done SIX this year! I think it's definitely awesome!
