Trip put on hold.....

At least until tommorrow.  We decided that we still had some things to do before we could go away.

So whilst hubby mowed the grass (can't call it lawn) I finished off blocks 3, 4 and 5 of Val Laird's Thoughts in Thread wall hanging.

Here's #3.

And #4 and # 5

Not sure if you can see it, but the swan is embroidered in off white thread.  So here's a close up of it.

And then all 5 blocks together.

I am really liking how this is coming together.  Seeing them all together like that on the floor actually made me go 'wow' - not something I do often with things I make.  I can't wait to get it all finished - but that won't be until October at the earliest.

The embroidery takes me like an hour to do, may be 2; and the piecing not even and hour.  So quick, so easy; lovely little bit sized chunks.

Thanks Val.
