An Hour a Day at Least

I have made great progress this week on my Liberty Sampler, by following Meredith's challenge to stitch for at least an hour a day, I have turned this pile of blocks
into these...


 I love the parrot!



They all need pressing and squaring up, but it turns out I can sew and talk/listen at the same time!
We celebrated my mum's 70th birthday while she was visiting and I managed to get a rare photo of the two of us together, it's a complete coincidence that we are wearing matching colours!
I am off on holiday for a couple of weeks, I still have some blocks prepped
my little scarecrow project bag is packed and ready to go!
