May in June Crazy Quilt Block

Now if you have read the last blog, I managed to mix up May with June and so completed the June crazy quilt block in May and then started the May block in June. I'll just blame this on advancing years and a multitude of events going on in my life that was causing a lot of stress.
Anyhow I managed to finish Mays block by mid June which was quite an achievement. Here it is.

Back to the traditional patchwork base and managed to get the month aimed for right. Have done this in purples and black to signify that we did have a horrible month with an ongoing illness and a death in our family.

Did a bit of bead work on this block using some vintage beads from my stash. Also used a few more buttons - which I do seem to collect!

I think I am getting better with the embroidery and edging, maybe that is why I finished so quick or it could be that its been raining so much this last month that I can not get into the garden so easily!!
