A few things I've been working on

Hi everyone,
In spite of my good intentions to be a better blogger I haven't had time to post for a while.
It's just that time of year where there is so much to do in the garden but I'm here now with a few pictures of what I've been working on recently.
I'm happy to have a small finish. This is a design by Plum Street Samplers Serial Bowl Collection which I intend to finish as a pillow once I can get to my sewing machine.
I stitched this piece on a piece of 40 ct unknown linen using Classic Colorworks overdyed threads. The small section of over one stitching was a nightmare to do on the 40ct - never again!

Next up some small progress on my Just Nan Needle in a Garden. This is a UFO from way back when and I haven't done as much as I would have liked but any progress is better than nothing right?

I have another finish. This is Spring from a set of four seasonal design kits by Elizabeth's Designs. Everything was included in the kit - linen, charms and overdyed threads. I've been stitching these with Brigitte who also has these kits in her stash and we are now making some progress on the summer one which I will show when it is finished.

Another SAL I'm doing with Brigitte is Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. I started this when the design first came out so it's another ancient WIP.
Here is the progress I've made on the block I'm currently working on.

This is stitched on Pearled Barley linen using the Vikki Clayton silk conversion.

I've been doing some crochet on a little blanket for the next grandbaby which is due early August.

and finally a gorgeous little wall hanging that was made for me by my friend Sheila in Spain

So I think that is all I have for today. I'm way behind in reading and commenting on blogs but hope to catch up in the next day or two.
I hope you are all enjoying your stitching and other crafts. Thanks as always for visiting.
