This and That

I did manage a little time over Easter to do some sewing. I need to have the Gail Pan bom I have been working on "Sewing Angels" finished by June. I have finished stitching all the blocks, except for a couple of borders. This is my progress -
Five blocks still need their borders - hopefully I'll get there.
Now a group of friends have an online swap going - our first swap was for a Dresden plate. I decided I would make Helen, my lovely partner, a table runner.  Helen loves French General fabrics as I do, so color selection was easy.
Love the look of the pointed Dresden inside the rounded one.

And for 1 Xmas Item a Month over at Narelle's "Pins and Whiskes" blog I have been stitching away on Michelle's "Down Reindeer Lane".

Cute aren't they? One block to stitch and then I can put it together. Woo Hoo.
