A new BOM

It has been a long time when I last time spent 'quality time' with B.,
but today I sewed first block of the Designer Mystery 2012
With it I'm gonna take part in BOM Rehab in this week.

Here is 'Laundry Days' block designed by Anne Sutton
and twelve half square triangles as side product.
I'm so excited about the fabrics!
They are all from Vintage Modern by Bonnie & Camille ;o)

I think I MUST add one more gear...

 there is still wide number of backstitches undone on The Lily of the Valley Fairy!

Very action-packed week to YOU!

I'm Proceeding at a Snail's Pace

 The Lily of the Valley cross-stitching is proceeding veeeeeeeery slow.
I have spent several hours with it this week...
... but the progress is hard to notice.
Maybe I must add the one gear ;o)
At least the weather is perfect for being at the balcony, stitch...
... and enjoy the summer, the flowers and flies!!!

with summer greetings

PS. All the Anni Downs fans, have you heard she has published a new book called The Simple Life?

Pieces... Blocks... Patches... or whatever...

but, above all, the laziness is still keeping us in its grip.

 A Pet Cat block for My Favorite Thing -quilt is in pieces.

 All nine card trick blocks for the Doc has been sewn, the sashing stripes are cutted in slices.

 "Four O'clocks" block for Designer Mystery 2012 is in patches.

But sometimes it just purr-feel sooooooooo gooooood...

to be lazy ;o)

Lazy Sunday greetings to You!!!

A Tree to Sit Under and...

... perhaps only dream... 

I don't know why I didn't get any 'visible' done nowadays...
I'm still struggling with the April blocks for My favorite things -quilt, others in SAL -group are three blocks ahead of me. It doesn't sound much, but to me it's a marathon. Shall I ever reach the others? Maybe I have become old and slow... and I need to go my own pace.

What happened with May's AYOS?
Here? No remarkable...
Doc is still in pieces on my cutting board... so I didn't take part to the Schnibble parade in this... no... last month :o(. But SintaRenee and Sherri are displaying wonderful Doc parades. Please, remember to visit and watch them!

Because I know the HOT summer will come some day...
although it still seem to be far away...
... but when it's come, then it's awful to be inside, sew and use iron with the steam... so I dug up one of my regular 'summer' project - HEXAGONs.
BUT I DUG only SOME of them UP ;o)

The other regular 'summer' project is cross-stitching.

I think some of you have seen The Lily of the Valley cross-stitching here earlier.
I don't remember, when I started it... anyway years ago...
... joten kukkaiskeijun merkeissä osallistun kesäkuussa
... so this flower fairy will be my finished 'UFO' for the June!!!

I suddenly got the feeling that I'll join Fenix, sit under the blossoming tree and dream of...
... oh, I forgot... we don't have an apple tree on our balcony, then we'll just dream of it ;o)

Happy week to you,
let it be full of dreams!!!
