Block 4 stitched – tick.

Block 4 pressed – tick.

Block 4 pieced – tick.

Block 4 of Bronywn Hayes’ Catalicious BOM is called “Brutus with Sue and Cynthia”. This photo doesn’t show the colour very well, but the dark fabric is an aubergine colour, with the other print a buttercup-y sort of colour.

I thought this was going to pretty quick to stitch, but it seemed to take me a little longer than I estimated. But not to worry . . . I’m enjoying seeing all the blocks come together . And I think I’m enjoying satin stitch! If you’re like me and struggle a bit with this stitch and you haven’t seen this tutorial from Melly, check it out and give her technique a try – it worked for me!

So, that’s Block 1 – Brutus The Cat

Block 2 – Friends

and Block 3 – Sisters

I’m trying to use supplies on hand for this project, which is pretty satisfying. These Sawtooth Star blocks will be 18 1/2″ square (finished).  I don’t usually work with large blocks, so this is a bit of a change for me and I must say, I like seeing progress in the large sizes!

Well, I was slightly lagging behind, but have now finished Block 3 of Bronwyn Hayes’ Catalicious stitcheries  “Sisters (featuring Brutus the Cat)” . . .

This block had plenty of satin stitch, which usually leaves me feeling a little anxious . . . but then I came across this tutuorial  by Melly & Me which really helped me A LOT!!! So now I am boldly approaching satin stitch without hesitation!

The stitching on the next block is under way . . . more to come on that later. If you want to get in on this block of the month stitching, it’s not too late. Click on the Catalicious button on my sidebar  . . . and start stitching.

Well, I really enjoyed the stitchery I started on Friday night . . . and just kept right on stitching over the weekend!

And the first block is finished. I always like the look of the Saw Tooth Star . . . and it goes together pretty quickly, too.

My plan is to use fabrics from my fabric club stash  . . . and the wonderful variegated embroidery threads that I have have been the inspiration for the colours . . .

I’m looking forward to next month’s design from Bronywn Hayes . . . and who knows – maybe it will time nicely for next month’s Sew-In. Stayed tuned . . .
