A little progress.

Hello my friends.
I left my stitching chair to do few other things.
Tillie is sleeping on my foot stool.
I am pleased I took photos before.
Stitching for Friday last night on 
`Joy to the World`
one of my Christmas gifts.
Nearly complete!


This lovely lady was a gift from one of my sisters for 
last years birthday .
My sister sent left over fabric from her skirt.
So a project bag has been made.


The front with checker board like Sherri McConnell`s
shown on Kimberly Jolly`s  Fat 1/4 Shop blog. 


For the flower but adding extra on stem area I used 
Lori`s flower pattern out of my copy of her book.


As Sherri says I quilted cross hatching
on the back fabric using tape to quilt the lines.
I used cotton batting for the inner and will use this again. 


February`s`The Little Stitcher` SAL for Step 2 is 
this cute train.


A close up of the train.
Next part in March. :)


This is looking down our drive.
This branch has been hanging over,
but Hubby thought it would be ok till peaches 
where ready.


Today with the rain we have had this tree has dropped  the branch lower.
Hubby had to thin out more fruit off before the branch broke.


Well rain seems quite steady now.
We have been quite dry and only been allowed to use hand held hoses,
which is on even days for us for our house number.
So pleased that I have a break from that chore.
 More stitching time.
Tillie has gone outside so can work on stitching again. :)
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
