Tipsy Tree

Hello my friends it`s time for:

For September I have stitched 
`Tipsy Tree` by Charland Designs,Inc.
This pattern is in 2007
`Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments` magazine.
I had this ear marked to do so thought this was the time.

A close up of stitching.
The star from my button jar with `Mill Hill` beads.

Some of my fabric from my Christmas stash
for the back.

Look what `Miss Tilly` is doing!


Max checking on what`s happening.

That didn`t stop her, dog tail must be taste good.

While Max is away the girls have taken over for the day.
If they laid an egg I do not know but Max could have had a snack
when returning.
Hope you enjoyed your visit.
Happy Stitching,

Waiting for Sunshine

Hello my friends.
I am well over due for you to come  visiting,
I have been waiting for sunshine to take photos.
Now the weekend is looming the forecast is for rain again!
Our beautiful Tui`s are visiting us again.
There is a family of five.
This one is in the peach tree with the spring blossoms coming into flower.

I think this one is in the apricot tree.
They where singing their lovely song.

Last month I didn`t show my completed `Clock`
block  5 from `Relics from Yesteryear`.
The mystery quilt from `The Country Yard`.
My photo will not turn the right way! :(
I am happy with the finished block though.


This months block 6 is `Mannequin`. 
I used to use one of these when I did dress making.
This went on the back burner once I started patchwork.
Four hexagon pieced flowers was an extra this time.

Then I was able to get the last place in this 
`Quilters Theme` mystery Stitchery from 
`The Country Yard`

A lovely little needle book open on the box.
Below showing the threads:
Cottage Garden Thread # 1206 Lyrebird,
Aurifil # 2372.
Background fabric, front of needle book and month 1 pattern.
A lovely box to store everything in.

First triangle block stitched.

Second  triangle block.

I wonder what will come next month.
Hubby is seeing again in his left eye.
A little more recovery time,
then back for a final checkup
and then can return to work. 
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Till next time.
Happy Stitching,
