Hand Stitching Fever

I made another Klosjes. These things are going to be addicting! I have to prep a bunch more when I have the chance because these will be a great portable project. 2 down 1198 to go. LOL!I put together the last block of my "Gardeners Journal" top and added it to the others. I have to find something for a small border and then add the scrappy final border. This will have to be put away until I go shopping.
Here is a closeup of the last block. I cut a little too much on the left. OOPS! I guess the wind is blowing my tree.
I managed to get October's "Calendar Redwork" BOM Done. These are quick and easy!
I also finished 2 more Redwork Baskets.

That's it for this week. I did clean out my sewing room of patterns and books I knew I would never use. I gave some to a friend online and am waiting for another friend to go through them before I put them up here to see if there are any takers.

I pray you all have a safe, happy, healthy week.

I have seen those Klosjes on lots of blogs, they are lovely and seem to be quite addictive. I don't want to catch that bug, Hexies are bad enough.

The Klosjes are cute. Even if it isn't quilted, doesn't it feel good to have the Gardner's Journal finished. It is so pretty.

Wow! Are you ever fast at stitching! Your garden top is beautiful...I've always loved that pattern! I've been ignoring my Klosjes...you are inspiring me to get them out again.

In stitches,
