Gingie Stitching

Good stitching weather down here. So while I was going through my sewing room looking for a little project to stitch recently in front of the fire, I found one of Michelle's lovely projects I had earmarked in a magazine.


I made a start and a few nights of stitching later, the five cute little stitcheries are finished -

Very cute little gingerbread men if I may say so.

Now to raid the Christmas fabric stash and cut some 2-1/2 inch squares and put it together.  The mag was from 4 or 5 years ago, but Michelle will have the pattern available if you check with her over at www.michelleridgwaydesigns1.blogspot.com.au

I recently participated in a fun swap with the No Fuss Swappers - kitchen themed.  I have shown you my lovely goodies from Illene, but my partner was Kaye from Kitten Stitching blog and this was what I sent to her.

I found this little teapot design on Kathy Schmitz blog. 

 
Couldn't believe my luck in finding a teapot cookie cutter to match.  A favourite recipe, spatula and cookie completed this fun swap.  Cheryl
