Happening's on my patch




 I've been busy stitching these. The BOM"s from Shell & Paula. The Christmas stitchery is the first project to arrive in the Christmas club i joined.

 I bought this name tag a while back but had forgotten to take a photo.

 Admired these at Joy's & when she said about getting them off eBay of course i had to have a look & found a set to buy for myself. It make a great shelf to sit my little iron & now my rule steady as well.
The rule steady which i recently purchased & the cute little needlecase from Marg
Closed,
Opened.
Patterns i've recently bought,


fabrics for projects & these 2 great books i found.
I've read them both & enjoyed them immensely. The Goodbye Quilt is about a Mum creating a memory quilt as she journeys across America by car with her daughter to deliver the daughter to college. The Healing Quilt is about a group of women in a small American town that get together to make a quilt to raise funds for a new mammogram machine as theirs is outdated & it's reported that there is a high rate of breast cancer in the their region. As they piece & then hand quilt the quilt you learn of their stories & how getting together to talk as they quilt heals their wounds & why they name The Healing Quilt. I must admit i cried a lot. lol

Happy Stitching,

It's always nice to see what you're working on. I especially appreciate your book recommendations. I've just finished a series of three books by Beverly Lewis, and feel spirit-filled after doing so. I'll be watching for these two that you've mentioned. Thanks!
