A weekend of stitching

I had this weekend away, which is my idea of bliss for mothers day. Slept in, stitched, read, nice meals. Myself, my Mum and Nana went out for lunch on Sunday together .
I finished up my Tradewinds block, now I have to find some time with my mum to help me put it all together. I AM NOT a sane quilter, so sashing and borders, and things that matter, for a nicely finished project, are not my strong suit.

Here is the progress on the cross. Mum has given me some great ideas for finishing this as well.

And a closeup of the middle of the block. There is still ALOT more work to do on this area.

I love the yellow flowers with beads and things mixed in. Really pretty block. I so envy you having conversations with your mom about stitching. =)

Incredibly beautiful work -- as always. The floral spray on the first block is especially lovely.
