Stocktake and lollies!

This week has seen me standing behind my counter happily rolling and measuring fabric for my stocktake. No actually that's a great big fib - there's not an ounce of "happiness" involved in stocktake!!! It's just one of those things you have to grit your teeth and do. But... I have several bribes and other enticements lined up to lure my son into helping me this weekend - a lolly jar on the counter will be hard to resist for a start. I, of course, will not touch a single one of them!!! (truly!)

Anyway, I've not shown you Debbie's last Kitten's Tale block - not sure how I missed that - here it is - utterly adorable.

I've not been doing as much stitching this past week but last weekend I did manage to get the linen border on my Days in Provence quilt, and then I made these fabulous little Christmas decorations. They are from one of Marg Low's patterns called Christmas Charm - she uses Barb's gorgeous buttons and I just love them. Very quick and easy to make too, so even though that was a new project I started, I also finished it!

I also put together block two of the Gingham Girls - here's the little Japanese girl on the tea caddy - very sweet.

And these are a couple of bits I've done from the next block.


Now I must get back to rolling fabric! See you next week when it is all finished.
Happy Stitching,
Jenny

Good luck with the stocktake. Your Gingham Girls stitching is lovely ... your satin stitch looks so neat and even.
Love the kitty block too ... hope to make that quilt myself one day.
