JUST KEEP SEWING......

This morning I was up before the chickens, so I sewed a couple of bee blocks.  I got a bit behind last month, but I think I am nearly caught up--------with blocks anyway!

Mary asked for a basket block like the ones I got.  She loves 'kitchy' things so I dove into a scrap basket and found this cute strawberry print.


Then there are the do.good stitches blocks where I usually end up learning something new--like patience : /



we were asked to assemble these half rectangle triangles randomly.  These were fun


and these giant leaf blocks were a quick sew

someone needs to cut the grass.......
and when I just can't think about sewing, I knit.  The next grand baby is due the end of October, so I think he/she might need a little pumpkin hat


I have hung onto these little overalls for about 20 years.  It will be nice if someone can finally wear them again : )


Happy stitching!  Enjoy your week end

Awesomely productive morning! When I'm up with 'my chickens' I still need to chase them 😂 I might be able to talk them into a nap though! Have a great weekend 😉

I just love that pumpkin hat and those overalls are just gorgeous! Do you have a pattern for the hat as I have a step granddaughter expecting a baby in a month's time and I think she would love a pumpkin hat for the baby.

Such an adorable little hat!!!! There's nothing quite like creating sweet little things for an imminent grandbaby :*) And those overalls - they remind me of last year when I discovered a box filled with tiny pieces of clothing I had kept from my own babies. Isn't it amazing how these little garments can bring back such lovely memories?

It never would have occurred to me to make a pumpkin hat but this is SO adorable. Now I'm thinking every baby should have one :D
