June PH and could this be a new obsession?

Rosette 3 of the Millefiore quilt a long with Katje...

June perpetually hexie with Katje. First lot of triangles I cut at 2" only to read the instructions to find they should have been 2 1/2 " . Love this block. Will link with Anthea at Hibiscus stitching for her EPP party.

Some more of my Dear Jane blocks. Top right I think may need redoing as it's a wee bit dark. Will think about it and see how it looks in the whole quilt.Up to date so 68 blocks down and counting!

My Fancy Forest quilt. Got all 4 borders on, then unpicked them all as the quilt bubbled. I fixed a couple of blocks and then resewed the borders( properly) but it's still got a bit of a crease in the firefly but after quilting I think I can disguise that.

A couple of weeks ago I went to hear Michele Hill talk about her Beatrix Potter journey. Was NOT going to buy the book..... but it snuck into my bag and I have started 4 of the embroideries just to while away the time. Think I need to finish a few projects though. Wonderful day all round and I am so glad I got the book.

Yesterday, being Queen's birthday public holiday I, with 2 others, visited Marina who showed Rosalie, Karin and me the wonders of clamshells without the use of papers. All 3 of use were excited by the ease of this and the speed..... a new obsession I feel, and hopefully a way of getting rid of scraps. Mind you Rosalie has some purples that I may like so ...... Another great day M , company wonderful, sewing amazing( Caswell is amazing) and thanks for the great teach!
