Quaker Garden progress

I think I'm a little over halfway through Quaker Garden. I'm really enjoying it! I changed the colour of the leaves and stems under 'V' to make them stand out more.


I've also been putting in stitching time on one of my exchanges, Earth (I'll post a piccie of her another day), and Leanne's House (patchwork). I'm not very pleased with my work on Leanne's House though. I spent so much time ripping apart seams and redoing them yesterday and mini-block 2 still isn't right. I need to be more careful!

It doesn't help that my rotary cutter is broken and my cutting mat has been commandeered by Martin. There's no way I'd put fabric near it now....

  2. hehe I have cutting mats in my house that look very sinilar from both me and the other half :)
    I find it great though as a wargaming addiction accounts for at least as much money as I spend on stash.

    Quaker garden looks fabulous as does air (didn't comment on her the other day)

  5. I think Martin needs to invest in another cutting mat for your exclusive use... ;)

    Lovely progress on Quaker Garden, you've almost caught me up! I spent yesterday stitching one side of the wreath and I'm hoping to finish the other side today. The end is in sight!

  6. Lovely progress on Quaker Garden. We got round the cutting board problem by buying us both one at the same time LOL!
