CATCHING UP.... AND PACKING.

Time flies...
Yet, some progress have been done on my current projects.
;>)

A Gardener's Journal Quilt
(Anni Downs)
6 blocks (out of 9) are now ready for adding the embroideries.

Crochet - "Gispy Blanket"
10 rows completed (7 more to go + borders)

"On the Bench"
I couldn't resist appliqueing those little cuties for a wallhanging...
Now I'm pondering : border, or not ?
What do you think ?

LORI started this fantastic adventure, and created a blog for the purpose.
The idea is to make a very special quilt, just for yourself.
I decided to be part of the fun with my "Little Baskets"
(loooong-term / handpiecing  project in CW repro fabrics)
13 new baskets have been added to the 60 I had made so far,
 and I'm planning many, many more.
Some generous friends even sent to me some repro fabric squares,
so that I make no two alike, and I'm so grateful, because
CW repro fabs are still so seldom in my little corner...

Some crosstitch
Is also tempting me.
Shhhhh..... Surprise !

********
PACKING !


As you might know, we're now living 6 months a year in Spain
(from April to November)
and we're leaving in about 3 weeks (just after Easter).
 I'm now busy sorting out my "things",
writing lists (and lists of lists) filling boxes with my projects,
so that I take everything I need... "but not too much!" says DH.  LOL

I guess my next post will be written from there...
In the meantime, take care, dear friends, and...
Enjoy your sewing !
