Merry Christmas

Can you believe that it is Christmas Eve?  It has come around very quickly.  The last two weeks have just flown by.  Last weekend I went with the girls from work to see New Year's Eve.  I really enjoyed it.  New York for New Year's Eve is now on the to do list to see the ball drop.

I have found some time to do a bit of stitching and have completed two Cinderberry Stitches quilts that you will have seen as works in progress.

 Snowballs for Christmas I just need to attach the buttons but haven't decided how I will do it just yet.

Quilt Market quilt which is entirely complete just needs a hanger oh and a spot to hang I need to do some rearranging.

These are some close ups of my Dream Big Quilt.  It finally arrived back from the quilters and I have begun putting on the binding but it has become too hot to continue so it has come to a stand still.  I wanted to show the quilting but it hasn't come out too well in the photos.

Until next time wishing you all a very Merry Christmas enjoy the day with loved ones and I hope you all get lots of crafty presents.

2 Weeks to Go

Can you believe there is only 2 weeks until Christmas.  Are you ready?  I have written all my cards and posted them this morning.  I have one more present to get and two I have just given up on and am just going to do the money thing.  I just have to do some wrapping.  I have one present to just finish off but that won't take long and I whipped these two bags up last night and this morning they have been on the must do list for the last few weeks but I got side tracked with other things that were taking my fancy.

These bags are so easy and quick to make and are a nice size.

Until next time merry stitching.

Time flies

I have been meaning to blog for about a week now but just haven't got around to it.  So now I have a few things to show.

 Spot On another quilt from my Simplify Book by Camille using the Ruby range of fabric.  I was going use it as a present but have changed my mind as I like it too much to give away.  I have another Ruby quilt top that I have decided I can part with.

This is my Dear Santa which I made recently in class I have used Lynette Anderson's Scandinavian Christmas fabric range and the pattern is a Country Keepsakes design.

 This is another class project.  A block roll.   I got the fabric whilst I was in New York.

 This is my Snowballs for Christmas from QFD's Christmas in July 2010.  There was a bit of work in this with the stitcheries, handmade buttons and flying geese.  It just now needs to be quilted.
 This is the first block from Quilt Aid 2011.  11 more to go.

Lastly two more blocks for my Swoon Quilt.  Six more blocks to go.

I will try not to be so long between posts.

Until next time happy stitching.
