Birds and projects in the air.....

Quite some time ago, I showed you the first block of a new online SAL project that I had started. With having company, this project has fallen behind. I did finish my second block last week and wanted to show you my dove. It worked up very quickly and I am now working on block three which is the rainbow and cows. This one is not stitching up as quickly but I hope to share it next week. I want to catch up for the release of the fourth block which I expect will be out any day now.

I had not been feeling well after my company left and am behind on the medallion quilt project as a result. I had been thinking through a number of ideas but finally decided last week on what I wanted to do for the last border as a closure to the story. Here is a sneak preview and this too will be revealed next week along with the story of this border.

I showed you my latest hornbook in my last entry. I have designed a little sampler (enlarge any of the photos for more detail) for it now which I am anxious to start stitching. I will be kitting this up to take along with me when we go to Cranberry Cottage for the weekend. Now to decide on thread colors and linen.....

i love your design for the Medallion quilt project. Pretty colours too.
Take some time to rest a bit.

Your quilt squares are very nice. What a great idea.
Lots of good stash to I see.
Your sampler design is going to be lovely...how ambitious!

I like your dove very much. When I enlarged the picture it is even more pretty. We can shake hands this time as I didn't finish my last border for the Medaillonquilt. See you soon.

I love the dove!! It is hard to get back in the groove after having been out of it...but you will get back in line soon.

Good luck with your hornbook, Heidi! And I am eager to hear about the medallion quilt(s) next week!

Have a nice day & hugs, Carolien

Oh Heidi, you are such a busy girl. I love the stitched quilt blocks and am very curious to see the whole quilt once it's finished. The same for the Medallion quilt project.

I'm so looking forward to our Summertime swap. My project is done and I just wait to get it mailed out.

Sorry to hear that you've been feeling a bit under the weather. Hopefully a weekend of rest at the cottage will help. Love your stitcheries - very sweet. I'm slowly getting caught up on my favorite blogs.

Hugs - Karen
