Hi and Merry Christmas to you all! It's been a while since I've been here but you know how it is I am sure - each year I promise to get organised and start those Christmas gift projects earlier and then it just doesn't happen. I am pretty confident, though, that they will all be finished by tonight and that there will be no last minute Christmas Eve stitching this year. I wanted to show you a picture of some of the girls at the last class for the year - the Cushion Club. Here they are ....
Sorry about the pose, Pat, but you were such good fun and this is the best I had! I have to say that I have never laughed so much in all my life. The antlers played tunes as well! Which was fine until all three of them were playing a different tune at the same time. In between all the frivolity we tried to make these little round cushions!
I also wanted to show you what Debbie is doing - she has started the gorgeous new block of the month quilt from Lynette Anderson, A Kitten's Tale, and this is her first block. Debbie has used quite a lot of fabrics from the new Moda range I have, called ''Heritage'', and it is absolutely stunning. I'll show you her progress each month.
I have finished block number 7 of the Redwork Christmas. Delicious Christmas pudding, just in time for Christmas day.
Most of the other bits and pieces I have been working on I can't show you, cos then it might spoil the surprise. But, this is a lovely little Christmas tree stitchery I finished a couple of years back - it is an Angels in Disguise pre-printed stitchery pattern and is one of my favourites.
I wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas, and here's looking forward to a brilliant 2009.
Happy Christmas Stitching.
