Another Gardeners Journal Block. you remember how last week I sewed one of the stitcheries back to front???
Well just to keep up my record, look what I did this week...

I guess there was a bit too much talking going on!! 
No problem though, didn't take too long to fix!!

So...another block completed for me!
Just need to trace some more stitcheries. An old xray viewer has turned up in my office so I am going to use it as a light box to trace some tomorrow at work LOL

Well after my bragging in the last post - I discovered a mistake!!
I was sitting having my breakfast on Monday and the blocks were draped over one of the dining chairs and I was admiring them (as you do LOL) and I realised I had sewn one of the stitchery blocks on back to front!! It's the little snail block - if it was any of the larger blocks I think I would have noticed it as the back of my work is not too tidy! I just can't believe I had sewn it all together and even ironed it without noticing LOL

So I got to use my new unpicker from Dawn Hay in our swap and I had to do a bit of repair work!!

all fixed now!!

And for those family that read my blog, we went out for dinner on Monday night to our favourite Thai restaurant as my brother and family were passing through Sydney on their way back to Canberra from holidaying on the wet Gold Coast!

I hope everyone has had a great New Year!!!
I have had a week off and go back to work on Tuesday - unfortunately!!
I got a bit of time on New Years Eve to do some sewing as Craig was working.
I managed to finish another Gardeners Journal block and add all the missing bits to the block I thought I had finished before!

I also got another block finished for my Little Patchwork Village quilt:
