    This week has been a SPLENDID week: I made 10 blocks for my Selvage Splendid Sampler:

    Once I get my selvages out, these blocks are so easy and fast! I am still quite behind, but I prefer to make these blocks in big batches instead of one every three days!!

    I completed the block for my second partner for June for the Hello Block Swap.
    A little house in a block, white and black fabric. Busy but cute I think!

    And this is the one that she made for me (she mailed it earlier, so nice of her!!)
    Block that I received from Cathryn

    Finally I went back to my Stephen King project. I have been designing embroidery blocks to have them with me for a upcoming working related trip: being away from my sewing machine will be hard, but having hand sewing projects will be great!

    I also completed one of the book covers. I decided to use reverse applique, and on a such a small piece it didn't turn out so wonderful. The effect is fine, but I don't think I will ever use this approach on a tiny piece like this.
