Christmas stitching

It's been a while since i posted so i had to think hard as to what i've been working on. 1st was to catch up on my BOM from Fig 'n' Berry stitches before number 5 arrived.  Just in time too as 5 arrives this week. :)

Then i stitched up the blocks from Gail Pan's Christmas BOM.
Just need to trim them & add the borders.

The bonus project is also stitched

After that i completed these 5 little ornaments from Marg Low. I'd prepped them earlier this year so they quick & easy to stitch up over a couple of nights.

Next out of the prepped project box was this stocking. I finished the stitching part last night.
It's machine sewn together & a top added that matches the heel & toe.

June medallion

I figured i'd better get my June medallions done out of the way before June zooms by & all i see is a cloud of dust & wonder where did June go i such a hurry.
I hope my partner for this month likes her medallion. 

Happy Stitching,

Partying with Chookyblue

I'm a bit late with my post but i did join in with Chookyblue to celebrate the Chookshed's birthday.

Friday night i did some embroidery. The plain stitching was finished off on this block ready for the satin stitch.

Now that number 3 is nearly finished i hope i can get block 4 done before 5 arrives.

Saturday i started binding this quilt with a little help from my furry friend
Then that evening as i was handsewing the binding down she though it would make a good bed again
 I had only about 1/4 of the binding left before i had to go to bed. Sunday saw me out of action for the day but i finished the binding Sunday evening.
The finished quilt ready to be gifted to my daughter. Beautiful quilting done by the quilting fairy Fiona.

Happy Stitching,


 I started FNSI making bias strips. I had several pieces left from when i made the blocks that were long enough to use so i counted how many...
