Hello my friends,

Caught the Sleigh in time for SSCS with Chookyblue.
My parcel to my swap parcel went Wednesday.
Safe travels.

This is my parcel just before I addressed it and took it to the counter
for mailing.

Third block of  Delbrook quilt.
Well best get on as little family coming this weekend.
A few of my patchwork boxes to put away and a bed
to make.
Plus a cord to make for a ornament finish.
Then that parcel can be sent.

Happy Stitching,

Belated gifts

Hello my friends,
with Ezekiel`s birth and that little family staying with us for over 5 weeks,
not much stitching was done.
Hence YD didn`t get her birthday gifts on time.
When she came a few days ago we gave them to her .
She was so excited they where hers. :)

I stitched this cute design from 
Stoney Creek Cross Stitching Spring 2015 magazine,
page 52.

I used suggested threads on 28 count Antique White linen.
Then framed it myself with foam acid free board.

With this owl fabric I made this toilet roll holder .
This is lined with black homespun.

A peg bag,shown on my trolly.
I sew the straps this way as the don`t seem to slip off.

Our little family.

Our daughter-in-law breast feeds with bottle top ups.
This our first born with his first born. 

Play time.
Ezekiel`s now 12 lbs 3ozs,
62 cms (24 1/4")
@ 2 1/2 months.

Tilly looks like she`s slid down the turned over play mat,
but only sleeping against it.:)

Well must get back to my secret stitching/sewing.
Happy Stitching,

Silver needles and some nice mail

Hello my friends,
I have joined Chookyblue`s SSCS again this year.
Some secret stitching going on but 
I will show other stitching today. :)

DMC E168 Silver I used for needles instead of 
DMC E436 Antique metallic thread. 

A little more stitching on this LHN  project.

I joined again with The Silver Needles 
`A Little Help from Our Friends`
Stitching Circle.
Plum Street Samplers is the first with:
Fraktur Friends pretty cushion.

The kit came with everything to make and finish,
plus these lovely pins.

Today's mail brought this lovely kit. 

Included in the kit with fabric and threads is this
amazing needle holder custom made by Jennifer West.

A close up of the flowers.
The top with a pink centre,the bottom a lovely lavender shade. 

On the back is this tiny but cute ladybird.

Once my Christmas projects complete I know a few stitching
projects that I will carry on with and these two will join them.
Happy Stitching,
