D-Day plus 1 :)

Hi everyone!
I had intended to post yesterday but time ran away with me so today will have to do 🙂
The Japanese x and + block swap is off to a flying start with some ladies ready to post out already! This is my progress so far

I’m having a blast making these and they are finally eating up my scraps! 
If your interested in joining in but haven’t signed up yet you still have time, you can sign up right until the last day for postage (18th fab) just here
In other news I’ve been embroidering like a mad thing. I’ve made 2 wall hangings –  one is child friendly, the other…not so much! If your adverse to swear words best skip over the next pics!  

and a close up of the birds

I decided I am going to use the embroidery books and patterns I have around the place rather than just looking at them keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll embroider them selves!
Also on the to do list this week has been Hollies Lone star block for our Sewn Together Bee
Progress so far – 
plus some Christmas socks 
I’m having a lot of fun with this, so expect a lone star quilt making its way onto these pages sometime this year!
Hope your all recovering well from the holiday season and fitting in some time to sew!

    I love your embroidery. Those birds are so pretty. But OMG I am gushing right now over your lone star progress. I AM SO EXCITED! (Sorry. Didn't mean to shout.) Seeing that really brightened my day. It looks amazing!

    I really love your x and + blocks. The embroideries are lovely, the first one is really pretty and I agree with the sentiments on the second.
    Love the Lone Star too, not sure whether I would have the patience to make one.
