Bloggin Anniversary Stitches ......

Today its my blogs 7 year anniversary - can you believe that??  Seems appropriate then what I've been working on this weekend .......
It was stitching time again on Friday with FNWF, which usually manages to flow over into at least some part of the weekend. It's nice knowing there are others out in blogging land sewing along together, particularly when I don't have a local group of ladies to sit and stitch with.  I'm hoping that will change when we get to Maryborough, as there don't seem to be any ladies close by here who like to stitch or handcraft!  
  It's been so pleasant getting back into a "slower" pace around here, and the house is still looking rather spic from the frantic clean up last weekend allowing us to just do a few jobs that need attending to. 

I decided to get back to work on the middle section of my "blogging tablecloth" - I wanted to add a Beehive to it since the craft cabin here got named "the beehive", and I've decided that whichever room becomes the sewing area up in the new house, it will be called the Beehive as well!  I think that's much more fun than just "the sewing room", don't you?
  I may end up adding a bit more embroidery to the centre as I start to put it together a bit more - unsure yet., as I'm also toying with a couple of other ideas.  Anyhow, I decided a border was also needed which I'm hoping will assist in bringing in all the signature hexie flowers so they  flow together nicely. .........  And I may have found a scrap of fabric that I'll use for some of the "in between" hexies.  I've also heard from another blogging friend who has just put a signature hexie in the post for me to add - can't wait to see what it looks like.  I also worked on getting the latest signature hexies that have arrived in the past couple of weeks into flowers, not quite finished those yet so I'll share those another day.  I also decided to pull out the crochet and get another block made, the first of the Nocturn (Navy) blocks.  I'm relieved to find that the colour seems to work with the others......... Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
