SAL Update 6.4

Hello June! I can’t believe we’re already half way through the year.

I have about 3 hours of stitching below as I’ve been working on bee embroidery blocks. Since my last update, I have continued Eeyore’s grey and will probably continue this today after a bit of blog hopping.

UFO Challenge #6

For the month of May, I was challenged to complete #6 on my UFO list. #6 is to complete 3 Beeutiful QAL blocks. Last year I completed blocks 1-7. For May, I completed Blocks 8-10. I finished block 10 today, 15 minutes before the shop closed! I technically have until Wednesday to have my completion checked off by my local quilt shop. Hopefully I can make it there during the work week…but if not, at least I was able to meet my goal!

I showed you block 8 and my work in progress block 9 during my SAL Update, but here’s all 3 final blocks for your viewing pleasure:

SAL Update 5.14

Sorry friends for the delay on today’s post! I’ve been recovering from oral surgery this week as I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. Ouch! Because of this, I was unable to schedule my SAL Update to post this morning, even though I did get some rest-in-bed-stitching done 🙂 Today is also Mother’s Day, so my husband and I spent the afternoon with our mom’s. We went on a historical home tour and had lunch. Luckily I survived the tour in my condition. I’m doing ok, but I’m not 100% recovered. I still have some soreness in my lower jaw, eating soft foods, and taking my meds. Luckily, Sunday is still here and I’m just getting around to writing my SAL Update.

Here’s where I’m at with Winnie the Pooh and his pals. I completed filling Pooh in and continued working on Eeyore. I’m so excited seeing this from afar. Eeyore’s head is turned toward Pooh and Piglet, so the black stitches are forming his other ear, if you can imagine.

SAL Update 5.14

For the month of May, my quilt shop drew the number 6 for our UFO Challenge. #6 on my list is to complete 3 Beeutiful QAL blocks. If you remember, I joined this group working on these embroidery blocks, but had stopped to focus on Winnie the Pooh. So far I’ve completed 1 embroidery block, #8 of the series. I’m currently working on #9 and have yet to start #10.

Finally, I would like to show off my new project bag that my mom sewed up for me. Even though it’s Mother’s Day, mom always has a gift for me. She is so giving, so supportive, and so loving. Thank you again mom for this beautiful bag!
