Hooray! FINISHED Friday! :D

the July block for Crazy Quilt Journal Project challenge 2013 is finished!
have a look at other - even more beautiful blocks! - here

here is a close up - I had fun doing this block...I like to follow lines, designs, and do longish bullions - as you see on the and around the lace heart.
Big thanks to TWO Pippas!  The first Pippa, over at Pippas Quilts , alerted us to a giveaway over at the second Pippa, Pippa's Patch , lovely blog!

Thank you my friend Pippa - you have lovely giveaways that you post on your blog...not to mention your beautiful quilt blocks, sewing and embroidery :)

and cheers to a new Pippa friend :)

the return...... blogging and embroidery and challenges!

it has been just a few months since the last post.......over 100 boxes (!) that had been in family storage for  13 years, were dropped off all at once, here at home in June.....OH MY!  this certainly interrupted my stream of blogging (slow stream though it was), embroidery, etsy listings, etc.!

The storage box unpacking, selling items on ebay, and general putting away continues!  but can I manage to continue blogging and embroidering too?  stay tuned :)
Here is the Crazy Quilt Journal Challenge block for June:
