Tail Feathers Block 2

While on holidays, most nights I've done some handstitching on my Tail Feathers blocks. These are the mini-blocks which go together to make up block 2.

... and the completed block.

Most of the bits for block 3 and 4 are are also finished .... just need to find the time (and energy!)  to sew them together.

Today I've been trying to get the house clean and tidy before going back to school on Tuesday. As usual the holidays have flown by ... just as I start to relax, it's time to start preparing for the next term. 

I had a fun day out in Launceston and Exeter on Friday with my Friends in Stitching and fellow Tassie bloggers Vicki, Sarah, Roseanne, Cathy and Leanne. We visited some quilt shops, ate yummy food, shared some show and tell and talked a lot. FUN. 


  1. Natalie Lymer's patterns are always so fun. You've done a wonderful job on your blocks. I love your fabric choices.

  2. Love it ! You have done a fantastic job !

  3. Even though I do not do a lot of embroidery anymore I am so drawn to these little patterns that I fell I am going to be ordering some in the future!

  4. They are absolutely beautiful!! But no inspectors in the photos?? I guess housework does need to be done sometime.

  5. Your fabric choices have added so much to the stitchery blocks. Looks good.
