Siggies, x stitch, paint

Here I am again. Many pictures to be shown.
I received lovely siggies lately, a nice addition to the ones already in my box.
Then there was the birthday of Patricia, she wanted a Margaret Sherry design. I loved this sketch of two little beetles under an umbrella.
I did another piece for the rainbowcushions. Wim's cushion has a theme of hearts. The designs were made by a co-stitcher. It was nice to stitch once again for charity.
Then there is the quilting project. Finally the reds didn't bleed anymore. Our second lesson was very nice, we were tought to stitch the pieces together properly. Our homework is to stich four blocks, they are all the same. A pic of the layout of them and of my first work of labour, the top half of the block. It's far from perfect, but I think for a first attempt, it isn't too bad.
I also had a second painting workshop.This time I painted a poppie, one of my favourite flowers. In July I have a 3rd workshop, I would like to paint a scene with a lighthouse then.
Today was another competition in our crossbow guild. I was good, had 93 points and was fourth. The first had 95, the 2nd and 3th had 94. A very nice day, although the weather was very wet after some beautiful warm and sunny days in the past week.
