Give Thanks: Week 6

Well, how is everyone going on the Homespun Stitch a Long?? It's been so wonderful to recieve emails from so many of you participating in the program. I'm really looking forward to seeing your end results!

Well, the 6th stitchery has been released today, titled, Threads of Friendship. The finished size of the block for this one is 2x3".

Have fun stitching!

I'm back!

Yup, I'm back safe and sound from Indonesia! And I had an absolutely AWESOME time. I loved it all, and I actually didn't want to leave. I really love West Papua especially, and the people are just wonderful and kind. I wish I could have stayed a couple of extra weeks!

If you would like to read about my time in Indonesia, please check out my Sew Blessed blog for all the info and photos. It's a worthwhile read, I promise!

So, now that I'm back I'm hoping to get into some sewing for myself! I feel like I haven't done any sewing for me for quite some time now. However, this whole 'sewing for me' thing won't last long, I know. I'm going to get back into sewing clothes for a second trip to Indonesia soon.
But I have two Moda layer cakes I'm itching to cut in to, and some charm packs begging to be used.

I've had some wonderful emails from ladies who are doing the Homespun "Give Thanks" Stitch a long! How exciting!

For those who have asked, below is the list of the finished sizes of the blocks so far:
Week 1.
Butterfly. Finished block size is 3" square.
Week 2.
Love Heart. Finished block size is 1.5" square.
Week 3.
5 Hearts. Finished block size is 1.5 x 3."
Week 4.
Family. Finished block size is 2x6"
Week 5.
Angel. Finished block size is 3" square.

I'll be putting up the finished block size each week as a new one comes out, so check back often.
Hopefully I'll be back soon to share what sort of sewing I've been up to lately!
