For most of the year I have been teasing you with photos of my progress through my leaders and enders project. It all started with this tiny bit:
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you. A special shoutout to Sherrie at Food for Thought who is back blogging again. Sherrie is the designer of my cute little mouse button.
My leader and ender project continues, though I am now at the most exciting part. The blocks are completed.
When Life Falls to Pieces Make a Quilt (Em's Scrapbag).
For quite a while now I have been working on Dutch Nine Patch blocks for future wedding quilt for my nephew. He's just started dating a woman, so there is no rush for this quilt, but I want to be ready. Ten more blocks this week should give me plenty to play with. He's a military man which meant I had to include some camo fabrics.
Here are the 35 blocks that I pieced. They should all be different fabrics. They'll be put away for now while I complete projects with more pressing needs.
I had hoped to show you my finished shawl, but I still have to cast off and it's a picot bind off which I know will take a while as there are 272 stitches on the needle.
Did you get some stitching done this week? Doesn't matter what type or whether it's complete or still in progress or you are still thinking about it, if you wrote a post join up with Mr. Linky and I'll come visit with you.
