Only two more ladies to stitch
and a little finishing on border.

Kim is has a Quilt Along going on Instagram using this book.
These are my blocks for week one.


I am trying to do Stitch Maynia so these are 
a few of my starts.

A last block and a first block.

Hello my friends,
This is the last block of $25 with
`Delbrook`.
I have sorted with Christine my layout to finish.
So now the wait while everyone else making theirs chooses
their layout ,then fabric`s can be ordered.


I am looking forward to putting this quilt together 
and working out how to quilt.
I stitched this kit and made the inner pillow for part
of my friend Katrina`s birthday gift.

A little progress.

Hello my friends.
A little progress on
`I belong to a cross stitch nation`.
I am still fixing mistake but know where that can be sorted. 


Please visit these delightful blogs at what each of us are working on.

This is the latest `Circle of friends` kit.
I`ve only recently had mine come as this has come to me
the long way. After it arrived in Chicago USA, it travelled to
Switzerland,Thailand then onto Auckland New Zealand.
 Then through normal post lines to me.
I am enjoying stitching this and will show once complete. :)

I have the next part but sorting my fabric`s and where
these will go. Some more applique and piecing.
 Thank you for visiting and hello to any one new.

Stitching in February

Hello my friends.
I have a finish and some progress
on a few projects not shown earlier.
This first one is from `Circle of Friends`
sent from The Silver Needle.
Forever Friends by summer House Stitche Workes.


I enjoyed stitching this though I did run out of thread,
so replaced with DMC 3750 and closed the velvet 
cushion opening with DMC 3809.
Then this is the centre of 
`Coming Home` BOM by Sarah Fielke.
To complete this I have 4 more houses to go round
with some triangles.
They are nearly ready to add on. 


Well thanks for visiting but time to go as Grandies coming
here after school.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
