Welcome to 2013


Welcome to 2013! I've done a bit of redecorating to spark some creative blogging on my little piece of blogland.... 
been having thoughts of not continuing my blog for a few reasons, mainly the time it takes to keep up with it, when I really want to sew... but after reading lots of different blogs over the past few weeks I have realised that I really do enjoy being a part of the blogging world, reading what everyone is doing sewing, traveling, gardening, cooking and about all your families and those lovely pets you all have so I'm back with lots of enthusiasm....

Here is 2012 FQS mystery BOM block 4....
I really really love the fabrics.....
and here's the next block ready to go....
in fact I am loving it so much I may have to add my name to the 2013 list....

 Finished another block on this golden oldie....
more gorgeous fabrics and stitcheries... this one makes me feel happy when I stitch it....:)

  The embroidery group that I belong to always have a Christmas challenge .... 
to make a Christmas gift starting with a letter of the alphabet, this year it was "A" so I made an "Armchair caddy" to sit on the arm of your chair while you sew, with a pincushion and pockets to hold your threads and bits and pieces
with scissors attached of course so they don't disappear down between the cushions as they like to do....


This year the letter is "E"and believe it or not I have my project all organised and ready to sew.... good start to the new year so far...

Hi there,
I love your mystery block, what store/group are you doing it through? It looks like a lot of fun - although I'd be slightly concerned about the fabrics they choose for you, but those are beautiful!
I finished my version of Truly Scrumptious a couple of years ago, and loved every minute of stitching it! The stitcheries are so beautiful, I still love it and have it hanging on my wall so I can admire it daily.
