Susan Oh2Sew June block

Ready and raring to go - June's block is done.

I opted out of the May small project but I have been secretly prepping since I signed up.

To be able to fit this into an already overloaded schedule (darn that I still work), I am "streamlining" my approach - machine applique and maybe no stitchery - still pondering that one...

Here is my Block #1 for now.


It's great to see a few early starters.

It looks lovely and so 'Christmassy" (if that's a word)!

Raewyn said...

Wise move to streamline it so you can still fit it into your schedule..... it looks great so far, lovely fabric choices ;-)
