Another month gone and here we were, first Friday in August.
Thank you Cheryll for hosting yet another FNwF, and even providing a delicious apricot cake!

What was I making? I just could not wait, I was already sewing in the afternoon; it was a good start to a wonderful weekend , 
very pleasant "stitching in the garden" weather.

I started working on 3rd block of Mrs Beasley's Mystery Sampler quilt, and by the evening I had the applique flowers in place on one part of the block.

And last night I was putting together dresden plate for another part of the block.

Today I carried on piecing together the block and then I spent another relaxing afternoon in the garden; I started working on the embroidery part, before it was time for BBQ.

Lets hope we have another nice day tomorrow, it really feels like summer at last!

  1. Lovely stitching and photos. Also here is wonderful summer and today we could celebrate by bathing in my pool. The grandchildren are very happy.

  2. Lovely fabrics and stitching !

  3. Gorgeous stitching and fabrics you're using :) Barb.

  4. I love this pattern and the fabrics Radka.
    The peony fabric in the centre of Dresden plate is very striking.
    Nice to think you're stitching in the garden - it's very much mid winter here with very cold and blustery days - keep enjoying your sunshine while it's there.
    We had cooler weather in Ireland but a heatwave when we were in France.
