Friendship Medallions

Last night I decided to lay out my hexagon medallions just to see how they look together so far.
The 6 on the left are ones I've made & the ones on the right are the ones I've received so far. Now the problem is to choose a layout as there are so many ideas.

Happy Stitching,

Christmas candle mat

I bought this candle mat as a kit a while back & I got it out a few days ago to stitch together. The original had a fabric base that wrapped over the black felt but I wasn't keen on that so I cut out the red felt circle to go underneath instead.

FNSI August

Last night i joined our lovely hostess Wendy for FNSI.

I started out stitching on block 6 of my Christmas BOM. I finished the 's' in presents then stitched 6 & a, went to re-thread my needle only to discover i'd picked up the wrong cottage garden thread when stitching 6 & a. Darn had to unpick them  to restitch with the correct colour thread. I shouldn't have 2 stitchery projects near each other using cottage garden threads. :) Despite that little set back i did get all the letters finished, the stars done & started on the bird.

Pop over to Wendy's blog to discover who joined in last night & what projects they worked on.

Happy Stitching,

FNwF August.

How did it get to be August already? Anyway yesterday i joined in with our lovely hostess Cheryll & lots of other ladies for Friday Night with Friends

I needed to bind a quilt that i'd received back from Fiona last month so i started the day by making the binding & then attaching it by machine. As always Fiona has weaved her magic & the quilting is beautiful.

This is Ice Cream Soda. It was an EPP bom from Tales Of Cloth in 2017. All the flowers came from my scrap basket & the borders from my stash. The only thing i bought for it was the backing. The top was completed in January 2018 & it has been patiently waiting it's turn to be quilted.
The afternoon/evening was spent hand stitching the binding down whilst watching a series on Netflix.

After i machined the binding down i ironed on the transfer for block 6 of my Christmas BOM.
Now i'd better get busy stitching. :)

After i'd put the last stitch in the binding i added a few stitches to this little stitchery.
I managed to get the bird done on the bottom half before bed called me.

Pop over to visit Cheryll to find the links to the ladies who joined in & see what projects they all worked on.

Happy Stitching,
