Potpourri quilt row 6

Yes ... I finished row 6. This was the last row and all 30 blocks are done !!
I liked working on these blocks, they where so much fun to do.

In this row there was only one stitching piece;
a sewing machine

On one block came some lace

Here is the last row

A picture of all the 30 blocks together

Currently I'm working on the border. Thats alot of work because the border are many, many little strips sew together. The next few days I'm also going to work on the July ornament of LHN because June is almost over and I want my calendar to be finished at that time.

My summer jasmine is blooming in the garden and it has so many little pink flowers.
And the smell ..... Ohhhh ..... pure jasmine scent is hanging in the air.

Look at all those little pink flowers

And here a photo of Bowy who is enjoying the sun

Potpourri quilt row 5

Well ... I still have the flu but in between being sick, I also have been working on the potpourri quilt. So row 5 is finished now.

In this row where 2 stitching pieces;
this one had bobbins (do you call them so?) and buttons

On the second one there is a border. In this border I'm going to sew some antique buttons, after the quilt is completed, because otherwise the buttons get in the way when I'm quilting this quilt.

And here is row 5

Here a pic how the quilt looks with 5 rows

Now I'm working on the last row (row 6) and there is only 1 stitching piece in it.

Hearts

The last few days we had very sunny days so I didn't do much stitching.
I did stitch a heart for my potpourri quilt so I made a photo with other hearts that are hanging in my house

This weekend we go to a spring fair and there I bought 3 hearts;
the red one, the one with the roses and the tin one with two birds in it.



The pansy's are blooming in the garden

Bowy is enjoying the sun

My campanula punctata (cherry bells) is also blooming and I have made some close-up photo's

June calendar

And then its suddenly June, so time  for a new calendar

June is full of bees flying around the fruit and flowers

I love the dyed threads of crescent colors, esp. the blue, red and green one

I hope to start the next ornament red house in winter (from LHN) by the end of this week.
