Some progress is better than none. My main stitching focus has been on my pandemic project, the B.O.M, despite still having a few UFOs. I am now awaiting October's pattern to do some more stitcheries so fabric auditioning has been my focus and finishing off those little needle turned stitcheries on some blocks. I have done 2 of those and have this one ready to do. I am finding the oval shape a bit challenging.

Another week of stage 4 lockdown . Tourists have arrived en masse from uptown ignoring the 5km radius limit and curfew . Here am I going out one day a week for supplies not even being able to travel 15 minutes to my daughter's yet those special entitled people can travel around 80km plus??? This pandemic is very different from the ones 100 and 200 years ago. People never had the comforts and technology that we do, well, most of us. They really did it hard. It is my youngest daughter's birthday today and I haven't seen her since February but we have had the luxury of texting, phoning and video chats. I just enjoyed a lovely video chat with her to say happy birthday and see what gifts she has received. We are so blessed .
Anyhoo, I digress. July's block has been pieced . I haven't yet needle turned that added piece and I need to do the same with other blocks.

Here we go again. I am having so much trouble navigating this new blogger. My BP is already up and now blogging is stressful. Ah well, let's see what happens.
It has been a slow week stitching as hubby has been unwell again and I have had some health issues . Don't we all? Anyhoo, an ECG and Echocardiogram are booked for me this week and the next...as usual, one place can't do both and I have to go to 2 different places.
So, the only stitching that has been done are the final 2 stitcheries for September, no more to do until October and I finally pieced the June block. Now I am struggling auditioning fabrics for July's. At least I dug out a couple of more fabrics hidden away.

As you can see from my last few posts I have only been focused on one project, the B.O.M . I am proud to say that despite joining several months into the project I have caught up with all the stitcheries. Here is the last of August's.
