As we have now moved into August, the latest 'Snow Happy Heart' pattern from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs has been released. I have downloaded my copy of the pattern which depicts a snowman on his summer holiday at the beach!! If I don't get it done before, that will be on my list to finish up during my 'sewing retreat week' as well as the Farm House Vintage blocks!
I haven't been completely idle this week sewing-wise. I have managed to finish the last task on my Kathy Shaw ICQC 107 Class Garden Trellis block, which was to add some long stemmed roses.
They were fun to stitch and I really like how the finished block looks. I now move onto the other background block with the fence and tree for the next tasks in the class.
I also managed to finish the first part of the next task in my Kathy Shaw ICQC 103 Class which was to design and stitch an embroidered monogram.
I decided to embroider two monograms as I am going to make them into a gift for someone later in the year. I have shown you the monograms here but, I won't share the finished project for the moment. I'll show you that later on after the gift has been received.
Talking of 'secret' projects, I did also finish up what I was making to send in my birthday swap with Leanne of Lizzie the Quilter and they are now on their way to Leanne in Tasmania! I will show you them later too.
In other news.....
Poppy is doing very well and is starting to use her leg quite well. She is having physiotherapy sessions to help her. They include daily exercises that we have to do at home!!
The contractor has been to make safe my garden wall and clear up the rubble until it can be repaired properly. Hopefully that won't be too long!!

Finally, I received another beautiful birthday swap block to add to the others I have received. It is another lovely block and I am looking forward to being able to piece this rather special 'Around the World' quilt top together.
Have a lovely weekend!
