Block 8 Progress at Last

This week I have been working on block 8 of Celtic Tree of Life.  I'm going to have to do some work on the final template but the block is looking pretty spectacular.

I am also waiting on the arrival of the fabric for block 9 which I will get on to as soon as Block 8 is all stitched.

There are quite a few photo's on Instagram of the block coming together a couple are here.  I got about ¼ of the way stitching yesterday and last night so will be powering on again tonight.  I'm hoping by end of next weekend I will have the block finished and ready to release.

Yesterday my sewing buddies and I had a sewing day we were trying to do this regularly but life just gets in the way sometimes.  I know I really needed it and so did they.  We picked fabrics for Delilah by Jen Kingwell.  I even managed to cut one block.  The other girls did way better but I was wanting to do a bit of everything.

I also started working on the MO BOM which I now have all the blocks for, most of the fabrics I loved for this BOM except their choice of background fabrics.

The day went way to quickly always the way when you are having fun.  It had done wonders for my sewing mojo which needed a big rocket.

I'm off to do some more stitching.  Fingers crossed I'll catch up again at the end of the week.

Glad you got in a sewing day. They do wonders for the sanity. I'm looking forward to one on Monday. Once we get past graduation, family visits and etc. I'm taking a day to do nothing but sew.
