Little by Little…

The past 4 months have been filled with all things baby.
Hannah One Day In May 2013
Hannah is a joy, blossoming in a new way each day… and she couldn't be sweeter.
In between "all things baby" I have been positively itching to get back into work.

And little by little… there's been designing, dreaming, planning and best of all STITCHING!
Some pretty fabrics and lovely felted wool.
Lots of applique preparation and oodles of blanket stitch.

Blue on white and white on blue… a little green for fun and I'm loving it!

Today has been filled with satin stitch spots!
Forty spots, and all of them green…

The applique and embroidery of the first 2 blocks is almost complete. The white petals will be blanket stitched tomorrow… "all things baby" permitting.

I love how the blocks have come up and I just can't decide which one is my favourite. I change my mind every day.

But, something I was not expecting… a little discovery while hanging them out to dry today!

This quilt will match my backyard perfectly! How did that happen?
Not entirely sure that's a good thing!!

2 more blocks to stitch after these… little by little.
