What's been happening?

Hello! It has been another long while since I last posted and I can't believe we are still living in this rather strange World!  Hopefully you are all coping and are keeping safe and well.  

I have found that stitching has certainly taken my mind off of what has been happening and would like to share with you the progress that I have been making with some of the stitch-a-long projects I have joined in with and which I mentioned in my last post.

I have filled in a lot more squares on my 'Sew a little happiness every day' project which has been hosted by the lovely Sarah Edgar of Pretty Fabrics and Trims.

I have completed all except one of the daily circles on my 'Toned Down Sampler' project which was a stitch-a-long designed and offered by Sue Spargo.  This project has now finished but, I think the pattern and kits are available from Sue's website. I am hoping to get the last circle embroidered and the project quilted (which will smooth out the background.... I used a piece of felt which really hasn't been strong enough to support the embroidery) later this week.

I have also completed a further stitch-a-long project offered by the very talented Laura Wasilowksi called 'Frieda's Nut House' which I thoroughly enjoyed.  Laura is currently offering another stitch-a-long which I am also joining in with.  It is called 'Queen Poppy' and is a lot of fun!

I am still working on some other projects including my 2020 Challenge piece hosted by Anne Brooke of H-anne-Made.  I am currently deciding what to make this piece of embroidery into.  I am thinking of perhaps a book cover.

Well, that's most of my news so I'll finish my post here and wish you all a very happy rest of the week!
