Progress on Natures Journey, OPAM

Below are some photos of my progress for August.

I've cut out all the 2" squares for the check border and started to join those together. Also cut out the blocks for the final pink border.   

Only a few bits left to applique' on the centre block. A bird, a flower, some leaves and then finish satin stitching the stems. 

Hopefully by the end of next month I will have most of this done.

I have one finish for August. Below is my place mat made for the Flirty 30's Retreat I attended last weekend. I had lots of fun as usual. I also contributed a block for a quilt for a special friend who is having a big birthday soon.

Well must go as school pick-up is calling.
Happy Stitching till next time.......
