I’ve been a busy beaver – I won’t bore you with the details as most of it is mundane day to day sort of stuff, but there was a fair bit of stitching involved too :o). Wanna see?????
Some Chrissy stuff ……..
The tree stitchery became this … Some Maverick stars (and I’ve got quite a lot more of these to do too)… Some gifties which I can’t show you yet as (hopefully) they are still sitting under various trees around the place ;o). But I can show you the progress on this one, it’s for my gawjus DIL’s Mum Rae for Christmas. Rae doesn’t read my blog so I think I’m safe to show you :o) … I still have some hand sewing to do as it’s quilt-as-you-go and I’m still stitching down the back sashings, then it’s the binding … then I’m done :o).
I’m chuffed to bits with this quilt, it’s from a book called Pieced Applique’ by Penny Haren.
I’ve got another of her books with a different quilt in it and I think I’ll be doing that one too, perhaps for myself. It’s really fun to make these blocks :o).
Oh, and more show and tell – my SSCS parcel arrived from Laura all the way from US!! I’m utterly delighted with my adorable little owl… and I’m telling you right now she won’t be packed away with the Christmas deccies, she’s gonna hang around in my cave and keep me company :o). I haven’t opened the other pressie yet …
Speaking of wrapping … I’d better be off and wrap some of those Chrissie pressies hiding under my bed!! Oh, and do some Christmas baking too – YUMMM …
