Rearranging!

Hello my friends.
I`ve been rearranging my sewing and stitching.
This is still in progress hence I have 
miss placed my pattern and threads for 
`I Belong to a Cross Stitch Nation`.


Hence no stitching to finish this. :(
It will turn up but not in time for today.
Please visit the other Stitcher`s here for
SAL with a difference.


So I stitched some more on my 
`Strawberry Fields Forever`
by Blackbird Deigns. 


This is a cushion cover in the making.


Peanut the cat thinks this way he will catch the 
Tui birds that come visiting.
Happy stitching,
Clare.

A stitching lady

Hello my friends,
I have had our youngest daughter and children staying with their pets
while they where between homes.
Yesterday was moving day.
There is still a few things left by my sewing area,
so no sewing for a few days.
 By Tuesday I should be able to get to my machines. 
Another lady finished on
`I belong to a cross Stitch Nation`.


I am so close to finishing and I will frame this one.
Please visit with the rest of the group
`SAL With a Difference`. 
Happy stitching,
Clare.

sewing and stitching.

Hello my friends,
I`ve been sewing and stitching.
The last lady nearly finished.


Time to see what the other`s have been stitching for
SAL with a difference.
       
                           

I made this project bag by following Kimberly of
The Fat 1/4 Shop`s tutorial.
Mine is a little smaller but fits my project
and so I`m happy using it.
The back showing off the cat shelves.


My little quilt from Kim Diehl`s mystery on Instagram.
I have this ready to quilt.


This was a surprise in the mail from a friend in USA. 
When we were over there we went to a State Fair 
in Ohio,so this will be fun to stitch and remembering 
the memories.


So I hope you find time to stitch this coming week.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

We have a long weekend so my sewing machine`s
 been humming today and will till sometime Monday for this Party.


Preparing some blocks for my 
`Coming Home` quilt
by Sarah Fielke for 2019.
Pressing with my cute little iron which save`s putting up
 the ironing board. :)
These blocks are going four sides of the next border.


I`m a little behind on the quilt,
but that`s alright. It`s coming together.


I have been having fun going through my fabric stash.
This flower has been added to the corners.


I wonder what I will decide to sew tomorrow after
going to the first church service.
Happy Stitching,
