Hurray!

I'm saying Hurray because I've been without my computer for 10days. Today it came home with quite a bit of work done to it. Everything is now working again so I can let you see what I've been stitching. First up, is Month 1 of Di Ford's BOM, the centre. I made so many hexagons for the corners but each time I made them into a rosette the colour or the design of the fabric just didn't look - right  but with the paler fabric, finally I'm happy with how it looks.

 
 
Second, is a photo of my Chintz hexagons. I'm waiting on some more white, cotton chintz to arrive before I can do any more. It's turning out to be a bright coloured quilt.
 
 
 
and Thirdly, I made another block for Lori's  Big Top quilt, another bright item on the craft wall.

 
 
We have a long spell of extremely hot weather and some days have been over 40C so even with the A/C on it's been just too hot to sew. Today we had a cool change and a temperature of 26C - tomorrow, it's back up into the 30C's for a few days.
