Time to do a little more.

Holidays allows me a little more time to do my favourite thing. A little more stitching and catching up with some of my UFOs.

I had a little problem with getting all the issues of Homespun to keep up to date with Monica Poole's Happiness Quilt. The news-agency kept saying the shipment was late, but what they didn't tell us was they were closing down! Eventually I got my hands on a copy (digital that is) and was able to continue from there.

Block 3


Block 4


Block 5


And the beginnings of Block 6


Still have to do the quilt as you go stuff but that is the easy part and at least by the time I go back to work I'll be up to date with them all.

Friday Night Sew In.

Thanks to Wendy for hosting Friday Night Sew In again and I had a lovely Friday and night stitching with my buddies.

I did some stitching on my little framed "Sparrow" stitchery from Jenny. Only have a couple of green leaves to do and to get a nice frame, then it's all done.



Not many photos of the day, just the passion-fruit slice for morning tea. Too much laughing, stitching and having fun to get the camera out!


Pop on over the Wendy's blog and check out what everyone else was up to last night.
Thanks for stitching with me.

Crushed Walnut Shell Pin Cushion

Just made this today. Fun little project using left over quilt scraps...............only I used something from the stash and not out of the scrap bucket!



My lovely friend Jennifer gave me some crushed walnut shells to try and I used it on a tutorial she provided here.

The Dragon & the Hobbit

Hubby loves the Lord of the Rings movies and in particular he loves Bilbo's speech at his birthday party, so with this in mind I decided to make him a new cushion.



I  added a couple of dragons as well. I am pleased with the result for the dragons eye using a varigated thread.



Don't know what to make of this saying but hubby loves it. Now he can read it whenever he wants.
