stitchin' Sunday

remember these fabric strips from yesterday's post - this is a challenge from my local quilt group

which needs to be finished by the end of February, ... I think???

so as today was really hot and sticky, I decided to stay indoors and stitch these together

and they all came together rather nicely even 'tho they are a pretty random assortment of fabric patterns and colours,

and voila!!!!

need some borders now, not sure if I have anything that is suitable, so I may need to wait for the next trip to town which is a few weeks away... oh well

let me leave you with these lovelies, I would love to take ownership, but these delightful heavily scented beauties are from my friends garden, she only planted them a few months ago - this land up here really produces wonderful stuff!!!

Enjoy your week,
