Lots of Sewing Happening Here ...

but not a lot I can show you - spoilt sport arn't I, but lots of secret sewing happening here as lots of us are doing at the moment. But have quite a lot of new things on the go (as always) that I can show you -
This "Pudding House" is a project from my class recently, and is appliqued on lovely linen (love working on linen at the moment) and will be needleturned onto the background once I've finished stitching it.
And you know I can't resist a snowman project - there are six stitcheries, as well as applique in my new wallhanging project. Am stitching it in "Cobblestone" - a gorgeous cottage garden thread I hadn't used before in blues and fawns.
This is the second of the projects from my recent class stitched in my favorite CGT "Hugs and Kisses".

I have added a couple of "treasures" from a recent explore of some local garage sales -
The roses drew me on this one - to add to my growing collection of old Cadbury and chocolate tins.
And I love beautiful doilies, especially old ones, so of course I could not leave them there.

I can't resist rescuing unloved doilies either. I think the boys cringe at the thought of inheriting them lol
