A New Book

Now you probably don't know this about me, but I love Christmas. No, I hear you say. So today I just had to purchase this new book that came into the shop -
"Handmade Christmas Cheer" by Pat Wys.  The stockings on the front cover were a drawcard, but there were several other lovely projects.
This was a favourite in beautiful wool felt.
And this lovely stitched table centre
The little hexie wreath quilt is stunning.
And I know Shez loves mug rugs. Thought I could make her one of these lovely ones for xmas lol.
Such a beautiful book - it will get lots of use I'm sure.

And I've done a little more on my Nature's Journey - had hoped to have all the borders finished this month, but made some progress -
