Starting and finishing

Hello my friends.
I`ve found time to sit and chat.
Come and join me.
On New Years Day night as the sun was setting this was the sky. 
My hubby took this photo.
Friends came visiting a few days later and said from their home it looked like angels wings.
I didn`t show this earlier as I hadn`t downloaded my photos.

My `Santa`s Village` is slow going as I`m waiting on thread and also in `Initial Heart Swap`.
My stitching for that is a secret at the moment. Tonight I hope to complete the stitching and then some shopping for chocolates.

I was so pleased to join again with Chookyblues SAL .
This month is `Thread Catcher` from `Red Home` book  plus if wanted to do, a shoe bag from `Some Kind of Wonderful` . I decided to make  a larger `Thread Catcher`and use as a storage bin.

`The Patchwork Cottage` block 1 is progressing nicely of `A Girls Day Out`.

This has been hidden in the back of a cupboard for awhile.
The bricks called out to be used and another piece of fabric I will quilt for the tiny quilt hanging in the window.
 Sharon started `Friends Making Quilts` blog for this QAL.

A close up of two cute cats among the bolts of fabric.
A friend gave me sometime ago this piece of fabric for my `Girls Day Out` quilt.

Little Jack the lamb has a friend to help get the lanky grass under control.
Happy Stitching,
