Stitchery progress

It took two weeks but I finally finished this "Berry Picking Party" block. I am trying to get all of these blocks done so I can start piecing the rest of the quilt. I want to give this as a birthday gift in May. May seems far but in a quilters world it is just around the corner.I finished the last block for my "Calendar Redwork" quilt. I have to find a nice red w/ white fabric for the sashing so I can start putting these together. This may be a Christmas gift for someone next year.
I also finished the binging on the redwork basket table runner. My mom will be ready for spring.

I had no time on my sewing machine this weekend. :( I really look forward to a day I can spend in my PJ's and live in my sewing room.

Have a great week everyone!

Love all the stitchery. I also love using 1 color of floss. It makes the job go faster.

Wow, you're keeping as busy as ever. Your stitching is so gorgeous.

I can't believe you're saying that you need to find red fabric. ;) How did you manage two nearly insanes without a huge stash left over? Please tell me your secret.
