Stitching Mojo Back

The stitching mojo is back but at the moment it is finding time to stitch.

My beautiful daughter is back from overseas and planning a wedding in just under a years time.  At the moment she is only working casual and is hoping to pick up a teaching contract for next year.  So when she get the chance she is down here and we are having a wonderful time making plans. 

When she is working full time we will not have as much time together so I am just treasuring the moments together - the stitching can happen later.

I have finished a few things.
Joy of Christmas - Gail Pan - A Christmas Club design

The Joy of Christmas - I am so pleased with how this turned even though I didn't use Christmas fabric.

Rites of Spring - Blackbird Designs
 The colours are so beautiful and so antique looking. The threads are a mixture of Weeks Dyed and Sampler.

Love... Block 1
One down and only 9 to go.  I loved stitching this block and can't wait to start on No. 2.

I have also been working on Od Couple as my monthly focus piece.   I have pulled all the fabric for a SAL 
of Some King of Wonderful by Annie Downes.  I have everything I need to start now.  I also ordered some fabice from the Fat Quarter Shop to do The Circle of Friends by Jenny Elefantz, I have been waiting it seems forever for all the fabric to come in.

I did finish the Love Never fails Quilt but just realised that I didn't take a photo of it, so it can wait till next time - which hopefully will not be as long as last time.

You seem to be like most of us - so many projects on the go - Can I ask where the Love.. block comes from -a bought pattern or a free download. I came here from the SKoW SAl - enjoyed your cupcakes! And I am reallly enjoying the SAL - its my first so having a great time!
