Can It Be... ?

Can it really be 6 months since I started blogging?!
OH YES it is!
(And anyone who goes back & reads my first post shall be frowned upon;))
Yes, six months since my first dipping my toes into the blogging world... and good for me I have loved it all... I had been reading blogs for months, but hadn't thought I was interesting enough or talented enough to blog what I made, but I have learned a lot since then & made a heap of bloggy friends along the way...

And my goodness, I just realised it's been a week since I posted here...
I have just started a new work regime which will be for the next 5 weeks, so sadly not as much stitching or blogging for me...

After the disappointment with the fabric I started stitching on for the Polka Dot Girls, I am pleased to show my first finished stitcheries on the new fabrics. The spots are not nearly as noticeable as these pics suggest


So these will go sit nicely in my container of Polka Dot Girls stuff... maybe I should make myself a Block Keeper... gosh then I would really be getting into the stitchery quilt mindset:)

Today I am packing & posting some lovely swap goodies so they will be arriving soon at their new home...
(And I'm so in love with what I made, I'm kinda sad to see it go♥)
