Oh So Quiet

Sorry for the eerie silence here. I'm busy working on my translation. It is a romance novelette. The translation is done, but I'm editing a 132-page Word document as we speak. Deadline is 31st March...

On the stitching front nothing much has happened except that I managed a few stitches in one of the My Garden blocks. Pictures will come when I have more to show.

Thanks for your encouraging words.

A New Beginning

I wasn't happy with my first version of Henrietta Whiskers, the free BOM by Bunny Hill Designs, so I went shopping and bought some new fabrics and used some from my stash.
With a lot of help from my furry boy, I stitched two new blocks replacing the previous ones, and also stitched block 3 of this sweet BOM, which was published on March 5th.

This is the - still incomplete block 1 - which still needs the three pieced blocks on the right-hand side pieced.



This is the new version of block 2 -Sophie.



And block 3, this month's block, with a very cute Henrietta pulling a little cart with acorns.



And of course, our furry boy helped me!
With a big translation deadline looming, I will be a bit quiet for a little while, because there will not me buch time for stitching.
