A Little Sewing

I have managed to get a little stitching done these holidays. These are the start of cushions for the lounge in our bedroom. I stitched them together just before Christmas and have finished the quilting on one (see the photo below this one) so just two more to go.





One of the projects for the online stitching group that I am part of, Friends in Stitching, for last year was a BOM. Each month one member of the group picks a block to make. I started off last year really well and got the first four done and then failed miserably after that. I decided to make just another five and turn it into a table topper for our kitchen table. Unfortunately this photo has not turned out very well (taken with my IPOD). The spot around the border and in two of the blocks is actually red with a tiny white spot - it looks really pink in this photo. I used Holly Holderman fabrics - oh so pretty. Hopefully I will have time this afternoon to baste and quilt it and get the binding on.



I have also done a little secret stitching but will not be able to show it to you until it reaches its destination.


I am also planning to go through my stash of fabrics and kits and do a little decluttering - way too many projects and too little time - so keep an eye on my blog as I will have some things up for sale if anyone is interested.


Chat soon
