It’s nearly the end of the month and I’ve been challenging myself to finish the Christmas Blessings quilt by Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse.
I’ve been stuck for a few weeks as I can’t get my hands on any DMC 498 to finish the stitching….I’ve tried a few different places..it must be a very popular colour. So now I’ve ordered some online and I’m waiting for it to arrive.
In the meantime, I’ve been working on the sashing blocks…
Each of these finish at 3in square…they are soooooo cute! And I must say, working in the Tilda fabrics makes it all the more enjoyable…..aren’t they delectable?
Over the weekend I’ll work on getting the top together for when my threads arrive before I can sandwich it next week. (or maybe I’ll just use a similar red thread and finish it all over the weekend? What do you think?)
This morning I had to sell raffle tickets and instead of sitting there twiddling my thumbs, I took along some of my favourite stitchery designs to do when times were slow.
This is one of the stitcheries from my good friend Jenny’s Stitchery Club. They are so sweet, and really quick to stitch up. I stitched the wording in a couple of hours…..took me so long because I was chatting and getting coffee and writing tickets and…..well……you know, getting distracted every now and then just a little! (not like me AT ALL?!)
You can join the club too and receive 6 sweet stitcheries a month. Just subscribe on her blog HERE or grab a copy of individual stitcheries from the Stitchery Club at her Craftsy shop. Each of the designs in the Club set is available as single purchase patterns from the 17th of each month. They are priced between $3.95 and $5.95 each, but as a Stitchery Club subscriber you receive the whole lot for just $9.95! Jenny blesses us so, don’t you think?
Anyways, back to stitching….lots to finish before the weekend’s end.
