A pillow

While looking around on some blogs the other day I came across one that I loved
here is the link to
I fell in love with her pillows so emailed to ask if I could copy and here is what I have done
it is our family initial and the year we were married I love it
so this is my first finish for June
don't know that I will get anything else done but I am still plugging along on my Gardeners journal so all is good

bolck 2

Well I have gotten around to sewing this block together
so now there are 2 done .I hope to get some more stitchery done this month to catch up to the other girls doing this quilt
it has been a quiet weekend for us just staying at home and sewing doing housework and listening to all the revelers at our Local [ worlds greatest pub crawl] event
some of the costumes were amazing and some were a little small for such cool weather

ok I will be back soon with some more sewing
