Lots of house guests....

Hello! I hope you all enjoyed the weekend.  It was very busy here but a lot of fun! I have a number of house guests at the moment, friends of my children and, it is great of fun to have young energy in the house!


July base block

It is going to be a busy week but, in between, I am hoping to get my CQJP Challenge 2015 block for July finished.  I am running behind but, as I have the base block ready to embellish, I am hoping that it will be an easy project to pick up when I have some time here and there.

Embellished blocks January-June



If I get the July block finished this week, I am hoping that I will also be able to get the August block finished before the end of the month too and get back on schedule!

    1. Thank you Linda! No, luckily I have my sewing room in a conservatory at the back of the house.... so I can retreat in there when I need to! Christine x

  2. Christine, I feel so much better, having read your blog. My block is half done and I was feeling so guilty, now I shall pick it up and continue with it, knowing I am not the only one that time runs away from. Enjoy your guests.

  11. What fun to have house guests - enjoy them while you can, and then enjoy the peace and quiet once they leave too. That's a win/win!
