I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Sad face... I didn't quite manage to get the "Spider" block finished last night on Boo Club so I will need to give that some more love on Friday.

The WIPs above have all received some more attention since their previous updates this month so I thought I would show them today... after all we need to have pretties in an update post!! 😃

And last but not least, here's my little bar graph for April....

So that's April done and dusted.... it was a good month for my WIPocalypse projects!

Til next time... happy stitching!


  1. Just had fun catching up on the last month and seeing progress on so many beautiful pieces. Congrats on your finishes too. Here's hoping May will be just as successful. :)

  2. Beautiful work on everything. Good luck with your May progress.

  3. I like your Ursula Michael stitching Noni.Her word designs are a favourite of mine.I have this in my stash...maybe a Christmas project?
    I love Boo Club too,Hallowe'en designs are some of my favourites too:)
    Lovely stitching .

  4. Nice May projects. That Just Nan is going to be a beauty when it's finished! Love your fabric choice for everything. Gotta have pretties!

  5. The Just Nan is the most perfect Spring stitching project.

  6. Tulip Time is so sweet! Someone posted a full list of JN designs on the FB group and there are so many I still need! LOL "need"
