I have had a child-free week this week and it is truly amazing how much stitching you can get done when there are few domestic activities to attend to! A nutritionist would probably take a very dim view of my menu this week, but you can still get vitamins and protein from a cheese and salad sandwich! (can't you?)

Before I show you what I have been stitching I need to show you Debbie's block two of a Kittens Tale. How gorgeous is this quilt going to be!

I have been stitching Natalie's Secret Garden, and here's the finished article. It was a such a lovely project to stitch.

These little things are that I have made for the Sewing Kit Club - a pincushion, needlecase, scissor keep and project basket. They are the same fabrics as Natalie's sewing tote. I loved working with them so much for that project that I needed to use them more!
These turned up unexpectedly yesterday morning - a few of Amy Butler's Midwest Modern fabrics - totally different to those fabrics that I have been working with this morning, but absolutely wonderful. Now what can I do with these...

And these arrived too - not such a good pic as they are the most glorious green colour, and the slightly heavier weight fabric, fantastic for bags or home decor.

Hopefully I will be finishing the last Redwork Christmas block this afternoon at stitching group. I'll show you that next week.

Happy stitching,
Jenny
