WIP - Hellooooo

Hello everyone

As promised, I am back after our epic honeymoon in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.  A big thanks to everyone who left such lovely comments on my last post.  Even Mr C was touched!  Thank you all.

In all honesty we have actually been home for just over a week now and though I haven't been blogging I assure you I have been sewing.

First up were my May blocks for the do.good.stitches Care circle.  Merran had been kind enough to wait for me to return from my travels so I made it a priority to get these paper pieced fish finished and sent straight away.

QUILT BLOCK - Fish for do.good.stitches Care Circle, May 2013

Thankfully Merran's package of the template and some Kona Snow was patiently waiting for me... and... the tutorial she wrote was super simple to follow.  YAY!  It was a new method of paper piecing for me (using freezer paper) but they all came together quickly and easily.  Double YAY!  I can not wait to see this quilt finished.

Next up was... a secret project.  More to come on that one, but you may have to be patient.

Le Challenge

Thirdly... another secret.  I know, I know, I'm a total pain.  Never fear, though, this one is for this month's Le Challenge so all will be revealed this Saturday, 15th June.  Until then all I will say is this - Mr C helped me in narrowing down the focus of this one so you may need to think outside the square to guess where we took the 'maritime' theme.  Definitely no pretty dolphins for me.  ;)

See you on Saturday!  Hope you'll have some to link up too.

Ahh... it's nice to be home.  :)
