Tis The Season

So i have joined in the 2011 Tis The Season Stitch A Long.... in an effort not to fall behind today i traced March's Blocks.
The Fabric i am using is Lumiere De Noel by French General fabrics, so im already to go and cant wait to see everybody elses works in progress :)

A Gardeners Journal Blocks E and F

These 2 blocks have been a long time coming ... sort of lost my momentum there somewhere along the way.
I can safely say im sick of sewing 1.2 inch squares but besides that i really enjoy the piecing of these blocks :) I still have a little stitching on Block F but am going to get right on to that after this blog post .....
So that leaves me with Blocks B,D,H and I to go and 2 days left until the new Stitch-a-long starts , oh well i tried and am determined to get this finished soon .

Dear Jane Cross Stitch

I have seen this cross stitch on a few different blogs over the last few months and finally caved in and added it to my collection .
I found it HERE at The Village Patch.Check it out they have so many beautiful patterns .
I havent done any cross stitch for a long time and never one this big so it will be a challenge .

Rainbow Knitting :)

I have cast a new knitting project ..... the plan so far is for it to be a blanket . They may change depending on how bored i get with it or it may end up in the drawer and come out for a few more rows every month or so.
My inspiration came from a blanket that a friend brought over to show us and Sienna and I just fell in love with ..... it was so colourful and soft and made me want to lay on the lounge and watch movies under.
