15 Minute Challenge and Block 5 nearly finished

Another 7 out of 7 this week.

I have been stitching up a storm on this block and it has taken all week to have it nearly finished.  One more small flower to go and flower centres and the blocks all done.  I keep saying this is Block 5 but I looked at the image today and it isn't block 5 it's block 7.  Oh well.

My goal was to get 3 blocks finished in May and I think I will do it and make a good start on another block.  I'm behind on writing the patterns but I will get there, I think it is better that the actual blocks get sewn than the patterns get written.  I have all the templates printed off so that they can get scanned and edited.

My goal for June will be to have another 3 blocks finished, that will only leave me 2 for July.

12 months ago, we had our sewing retreat.  We planned to do it again this year, but we hadn't got around to planning it, we now have a date.  It won't be quite as long as last time but I'm sure we will pack a lot of sewing into it, just waiting on confirmation from 1 of the girls and we will book in to sewing down the coast.  Can't wait.

Mo's passport arrived last week so her Japan trip is getting more real..... don't know how I feel about that.

How'd you go this week see how everyone did on the challenge at Kate's.

Congrats on fitting in all the stitching time. I missed the news about Mo's Japan trip. Sounds like fun. One of Megan's high school friends was just there on a engineering sight seeing trip (disguised as a summer class). Love your block, the colors just shine against that black. Have a great stitchy week.
