no more houses on this quilt

Spring has arrived at last, night frosts are behind us, hopefully for good, and day time temperatures are climbing to double figures. After some rain this week the garden is slowly waking up.
This small ornamental cherry is the first tree to flower in our garden every spring, but other shrubs and trees are not going to be far behind.  

Today I spent some time joining together all the blocks for Yoko Saito's BOM quilt and positioning them on the background fabric. After attaching them I will start working on applique for the border. There is a lot more stitching to be done, but no more houses!

I have also made some progress on the 4th stitchery for the Scandinavian Rose quilt. This one is the largest one so far, but the stitching is quite easy and quick.

Have a good stitching week!

  15. milá Radko, nesmírně obdivuju vaši práci, to je nádherné, co děláte. ty domečky, ach! a skandinávská výšivka je dokonalá, přesně to, co mám ráda. jste pro mě nedostižná a proto si vážím vašeho komentáře u mé jednoduchoučké výšivky :)
    ale umí to vyšívání potěšit, že? ať už je jednoduché nebo složitější...
    moc zdravím, Hanka
