Monday Makers! #9 and Cherish Bee blocks

Hi everyone! Hope you had a fantastic week and a good start to your Monday.

I had a quite busy week at work and at home.
We have been trying to finish preparing our backyard for the summer. Most of the job was done by my husband. My only part is giving him moral support. Last weekend, we had a bobcat digging up all the dirt, flattening the surface, fill it with top soil, etc. Hopefully, we will be able to build the veggie patches we have been looking for and lay the turf next weekend.
The wall you see in this picture, a 22 metre long wall, was built by my hubby. (Correction: The wall in the photo runs down the side of the house and is 22 metres in length. So, the bit you see here is of course not 22 metres LOL)  He is my hero. Love him..
And here are the after shots.
One of the apple trees is growing lots of apples!
Now the Monday Makers!
Here is what I managed to sew last week; do. Good stitches September blocks. We were asked to make two log cabin blocks for young children quilts; one in pink tones and one in blue tones. I have used my friend's scraps and made these. 
Now it is your turn to show me your finishes from last week and new projects you are starting today.
1. Your project can be anything you start on that Monday as long as it makes you move and be active and creative: a new quilt, a knitting project, scrap booking, cross-stitching, baking-we don't mind yummy recipes!, a gardening project, painting your house!, tidying up the pantry!...This is your Monday and you are the maker of the day!
2. Grab the button from the side bar- DONE!!- or put a link back to me in your Monday post.
3. Click on "add your link" and just fill in the required areas. 
4. Please link to your specific post, not to your homepage: We would like to find your post easily.
5. Please take time to visit other links and leave a sweet comment: We love comments!
6. Share the photos of your finished Monday projects in your next link up- I am hoping you will come back again!: Who doesn't love a sweet, finished project or a "before-after" photo?

  1. I like your blocks for do.Good stitches! I am going to be cutting into a bunch of pretty new fabric for a new project tomorrow, and I hope to get a post up in time to link up with you again. Yay! :)

  2. Wow I love the stone wall, it is absolutely fantastic

  3. You'll have nice backyard soon ;) I like that stone wall as well but I guess that is not the one you were refering to :)

  4. Pretty blocks - especially the monster print bordering the blue block :D I'm the Moral Support Officer as well, when it comes to anything yard/outside related! That's a lot of hard work put into your yard - that rock fence is gorgeous! We're putting our gardens to bed for winter, while yours are just starting for the season :D

  5. A clean slate! I'd love to do that to my garden! Love your bird fabric in the blocks!
