Breast Of friends Block 4

Block 4 of Breast Of Friends was all ready for blanket stitching, when Pat was taken to hospital. While I was spending all those hours at the hospital visiting him, I took this block with me and completed the embroidery side of it.

I finally got the block boarders sown on this afternoon and the fabric was still hot from pressing, when this photo was taken.

My most favourite colour is green and so I wanted this to show with block 4. Very pleased on how the colour has been show.

Last night I was resting and while watching a DVD, I finished the hand binding on the 3rd placemat in the swap I am involved in.

Plus I finished off a present for the "12 Days Of Christmas" swap the Tuesday sewing group are doing. Yeah I know we're getting in early. Nothing like being organized.

I have found the last couple of months, if I use the first 2 weeks to get any swaps completed. I then have the last 2 weeks for my own projects. So far this has been working rather well.

You're only limited by your imagination

You must be in a lot of swaps but then it fun waiting for your swap to arrive.
Your block turned out nice and I like green too.

Nice job Leanne, I do like the greens that you use. I did a couple swaps last year but I found them quite stressful so I have decided just to do my own things this year (and maybe a giveaway or two).

The placemat swap is over 7 months Debbie. 6 placemats and 1 table runner:)

I haven't gone and joined every swap Pip...just the ones I want and I see as a learning tool:)

Lovely colour Leanne. It is going to look great in these colours. Love to follow your work. I like your idea about doing your swaps early in the month leaving free time to work on other projects.
