Things & a finish

Not a lot has been happening here. Little bits of stitching. I managed to get my self organised & readied 5 tops to be quilted. 4 were UFO's & the other was Tis The Season which i'd just put together. A while back i finished working on some stitcheries i started about a year ago for a project only to discover that i'd not allowed enough seam allowance between 2 of the stitcheries. I still found a use for the one with not enough seam allowance. I had intended this as a gift but wasn't happy with the end result so i gave it to my daughter.
Bronwyn Hayes pattern from her Miss Milly's Flower Patch book.
I've been working on the block to add to a crazy patchwork round robin with overseas friends. I can only give you a sneak peek.
Received a parcel from Shell. My yummy chocolates were soft as it's warmed up a bit here. Just realised i didn't take a photo of what was inside. Oh well next blog post.
Latest installment of Wanda Brunstetter's serial about Kentucky Brothers arrived last week. Another good read.
I've only had this yellow rose a few months & this is it's 2nd bloom. The purple rose hasn't done much but grow. :(
Happy Stitching,

Wish we were closer so I could quilt one of those tops for you. And as always, I'm grateful for your book-reading tip. I've been thinking of you this week. Beverly Lewis will be at a nearby Christian bookstore on Saturday. Wish you were here in Des Moines, Iowa!

I can't imagine what it is like to have five quilt tops to finish. I haven't been very prolific this year. I love the Bronwyn Hayes stitchery. Can't wait to see what is in the parcel.
