From the Month of May


Postage Stamp Quilt
So far, I have hand stitched together 256, 1-inch squares.


The summer block is just as cute as the spring block.


Two houses for June.

Yes, it was a very productive month for you. Your embroidery is lovely. You made two more houses than I did this month. And all I've done on my postage stamp quilt is cut out some 2 1/2 inch squares. I have about 150 squares. WTG on your productive month :)

You certainly had a lot to show. I like the quilt with the 1" squares, must be relaxing to make and you can make it as big as you want;)
The stitcheries are funny, they make me smile.

That's one very good reason for saving 1" scraps - well, 1-1/5" scraps. Very cute!

Hi Karen, productive, I'll say! The postage stamp quilt is amazing, what size are those squares? The stitching for the Anni Downs wall hanging blocks are beautifully stitched, can't wait to see the finished item... x

Wow! Lots of sweet projects. One day I hope to do a postage stamp quilt. I just love them. I took a hand piecing class from Froncie Quinn, and of course i now love hand piecing. So when I do start it, it will be hand pieced. Altho i won't begin the piecing yet as i have other take along hand projects, i can start a collection of 1.5 inch squares!

You do have a very nice showing for your work in May! Love the little embroideries! The house blocks are so pretty in batiks. Always pretty work!

Karen you sure have been productive last month, wow I'm impressed and I love every single piece, the stitchery is very pretty, so are your two new houses and the Postage Stamp Quilt is absolutely gorgeous.
I'm in Luxembourg and we only had 31 day in May, You must have had some extra in your part of the world. LOL

I love all the projects you have on the go...the Simple Pleasures stitcheries are lovely (I have done the quilt too and still love it) as are your seasonal cats. Your house building is also going well - they are going to make a beautiful quilt too. I;ve enjoyed reading back on your posts and catching up :-)
