A Lovely Week - FHFSwap and 1 Xmas Item a Month

What a lovely week I've had, and lots to show you over the next few days. But first I am a member of an online swap group - Friends Having Fun - and what a wonderful bunch they are. Our first swap is a Dresden plate swap, and my wonderful gift arrived from Peg on Friday, and I was just blown away -
How gorgeous is my sewing folder - such yummy fabrics - and perfect for my stitching days. I just love it, and if that wasn't enough, Peg also included some other gorgeous bits and pieces -
A lovely Marg Low pattern and kit, which I can't wait to make, choccies (yum) and a beautiful lavender soap. Thankyou Peg for my most amazing gift - I just love it, and feel very spoilt.

On the sewing front I have finished two more blocks of "Down Reindeer Lane", one of Michelle's lovely patterns (Rag-Tag Stitchin') as part of 1 Xmas Item a Month with Narelle over at Pins and Whiskers blog.  Aren't these two the cutest?
And this little guy.

Have a great week. Cheryl

What I've Been Stitching This Week

Is it just me or are the weeks flying by more quickly than ever. I have lots of lovely things on the go. some days, its "mmm what will I pick up today", but with the thought in the back of mind of getting a few projects finished I am trying to stick to just 3 or 4 (notice I said "trying").

Another block finished in my "Reindeers and Snowmen" quilt from Crabapple Hill.

This is the first block of Rosalie Quinlan's new bom "Simply Blessed" which I just love, but am finding the white printing hard to cover (it's quite thick). Thankfully the other blocks are printed in brown. Will stitch some m ore of this over the weekend.
A little sneaky peak from a secret squirrel project. Have a great weekend. Cheryl

Sewing Angels

I am really hoping to finish some bigger projects this year, and one of them I've had on the go for a few months is a BOM from Gail Pan "Sewing Angels". These are the first two blocks completed, and while I have stitched a couple more, there borders are cut but not sewn on as yet -

Block 1 - Fabric
and Block 2 - A Stitch in time.

Otherwise, it's been a bit of this and a bit of that. You can never get bored doing that lol.  Cheryl
