This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

Number Two!

 I am pleased to say that I have completed the next one of these pieces.

I am not going to lie to you, I had a few issues as there were too many shadows and I have spent a lot of time removing most of the grey voile I put on AFTER I had stitched it.

There is some left, the top piece showing up more than the rest in this photo.
There are some detailed stitching shots here
The next one is planned (in my mind!) Hoping to find some time today to get started on it.

Linking up with Off the Wall Friday Friday

One down...

The stitching on this piece is done.
It's not that easy to see on the screen but believe me it is covered in lots of rows of stitching in a clear mono filament.

I will admit to taking a quick, easy option with the stitching because time is of the essence.
The binding is on but not stitched down yet hence the cropped images:)

Still haven't decided on a name yet. I did like Susan's suggestion 'Soar' and also thinking of 'Soaring'?
Here is a peek of the next one in progress.

My world is blue today.

That's "Engerland" in the distance.

In my garden.

More blue pics over on Instagram.

And I WILL do some stitching on this blue piece today even if it  is only one row!!
