Sampler Catch-up & Crochet Block

I've been busy on my genealogy work over the last couple of weeks, hence not much happening on the stitching side here. I have made a great headway on one particular small branch of my tree, and I always get a lump in my throat when certain discoveries pop up in my research. It is so interesting to discover new people in my tree.

But now I've actually got some stitching things done again I can show you what I've been up to.

The Embroidery Sampler has two small simple stitch bands added.
(sorry the photo seems blurred)

....and here is the full sampler so far.



The12" Block Seven for my Blues Blanket is That One Sister
Again, I have adapted the pattern to suit my personal preference (the freeformer in me always wants to take over, lol).


And....... tada!!!!
This is a sneak preview of a pattern that will be released soon.


So the only 'finish' that I can add to my YOP (Year Of Projects) is the 12" crochet square.


Tony & I have been out for a couple of coastal walks, all close to our home.
The first photo is Opunake beach from the cliff top (looking north across to Middleton Bay), and the second photo is the walk past Opunake lake and heading south to the next bay.

Two very different coast views and an enjoyable couple of days adventures.

See you next week when I hope to have more of the sampler done, and another 12" square, 
plus whatever else takes my fancy.

And the beginnings of a catghan nonogon.

It's late, I'm tired & I'm going to bed now. 
Sorry there will be no 'gossip' here today.

Enjoy your week.

Happy Stitching
