Cy - CQJP and a bit extra

February - Yellow - CQJP

Lots of random 'BITS' have been added to the yellow block this week.
Stitching is dominant in this project, and (as I am a crochet-aholic) I am making an occasional piece of crochet to fit where ever I think I can 'get-away' with it, lol.

A Mandala that needs finishing in the middle, probably with French Knots.



A slice of lemon for my G & T.



A 'sort of' elongated Yin & Yang' design.



This is the centre of my block.




And, last but not least, a Paisley.


I'm still enjoying using yellow threads and creating designs for this block.

Almost finished with the February CQJP now, just a little more stitching to get it to my happy place.

I've been doing a bit of cross-stitching on Stitchmap lately too.
Here are a couple of my designs.




And 'just-for-fun' - here are Fred and Mojo catching the sun by our front door.



And Juliette is looking for her Romeo by the lounge door. Luckily she didn't hop over the sill and poop on my carpet. I kept a close eye on her.


I hope you have had a great week.

Happy Stitching.

Great work! Is the S shaped part of the yin/yang embroidery or crochet? Love it!

Cute pooches and Juliette is very sweet.

The yellow bits represent a lot of work! It looks happy. (My fingers just don't last that long without screaming!)

Love all your wonderful stitching, CY! How about a photo of the whole block for us? Cute pups, too! Is that bird a dove or a pigeon or?

Angela - the 's' bit is crochet braid. I love making it and it gives a lovely texture to a piece.

Judy - you will get to see the whole block next week when it is finished (hopefully). Juliette is a white dove. The last one left now so she is a bit lonely. We used to breed them.
