thought I had slowed down this month--
but I see that I did not--
though several of the projects that I started back in Jan and Feb--
did get any work done on them--just collected the patterns--
I did get alot done on some others--
did get all caught up on the monthly cross stitching--
love this one--

and I got 7 more blocks done on the Bee blocks--wow--
and I did start adding some fabric applique to some of the blocks--
and the mail box is partly my design--that block just had the flower and the bee on it--
it really needed something else--

got some more basket blocks done--

My goal was to do one a week in the baskets- but with all the embroidery on the Bee blocks that has not happened--

and I did get another quilt hand quilted --

and one more sweater finished--
I also go down for Coloring club each Monday afternoon--

and I continue to stitch these blocks--
for the larger quilt to go on my bed!!


Started a new quilt top this month--
All about Bee's--

Now the original pattern is only embroidery work--
but I wanted a new project to do with colored pencils and this one is perfect!!
I was a bit behind, but got caught up quickly
designed 2 more dresses and got them appliqued--
have 8 finished now--and have 3-4 more designs ready in the pattern form--
and started embroidery work on these basket blocks--
these have been waiting for about 5 years!!!!

got Junes block done and finished off--this is how I will finish them all off--


Think I started to slow down a bit this month--
but here is what I did get finished--
A couple more baby sweaters got knitted--
And some monthly cross stitching got finished--
along with Mays--
And I still worked on the Splendid sampler blocks
and more blocks from the In my garden series--

And finallly I got the Bow Tie quilt totally finished and hand quilted--
this quilt was at least 10 years in the making and had redone the top at least 2-3 times--
