fabric journal covers

I made a couple of journals the weekend before last. I first saw them at Peg's Happy in Quilting blog from a pattern by Roslyn Mirrington of Bloom available at Moda's Bakeshop.
The pink and chocolate one was a little bit too short so I unpicked and added another strip on the bottom so now it fits well.

stitchery quilts

I'm doing Leanne's House block of the month although very slowly - this is one block finished just after Mum and Dad left last year in October !

Since then I've sewn all the mini blocks together- I started cutting out the weekend before Easter then finished them off over Easter.  Quite happy with them all although after laying them all out on my bed I've actually redone one of the blocks - I must try and organise a design wall - would be way better than my bed !

Also over Easter chose the fabrics and cut out the blocks for the Polka Dot Girls stitchery quilt by Brownyn Hayes.

Notice the pink polka me some polka dots and double love if they're pink.
