February finishes.

I didn't think i'd have anything to show for February but have just scraped in by the skin of my teeth. :)
First finish is January & February Snow Happy Hearts by Bunny Hill designs. They are free & can be found here.
2nd finish is this cute little stitchery by Gail Pan. It was a freebie before Christmas & can be found here.
3rd & 5th finishes are for a swap i'm for lovers of cats.

Happy Stitching,

Trip Around The World

This year at Sunday Stitchers our challenge is to hand piece a trip around the world quilt. Several of us have taken up the challenge. I finally got around to cutting 2" squares Friday & finished the piece of the challenge last night. Oh yes a part of the challenge is to use red/white spot throughout the quilt.

A few things i've been working on

Did this little stitchery last weekend.
It's a lovely free stitchery Jenny is offering us. This is the 2nd in the beautiful quilt.
Somehow missed the post for this block in the 6" sampler. Discovered it when checking out photo's others doing the sampler had posted. All caught up now. :)
A friend is celebrating her 50th this year & has requested teacups for her special quilt. This i my block for her quilt.

Happy Stitching,

Natures Journey - January

January's blocks are done for the Stitch along. Not sure i'm happy with them. I decided against using Astor Manor & went with civil war/repro fabrics. The embroidery thread is vintage rose by cottage garden threads. I also made a change. I didn't want to embroider the date for the quilt so i made another square to applique instead.
