Variousness......

My block from Sheila in Nova Scotia, Canada arrived last week...... it was fun to be paired up with an existing blog friend.....

This will go into my  I Spy block collection which you can see HERE...


Sheila also sent this lovely landscape postcard..... I had seen postcards on blogs but never close up and now I have one of my own..... such a lot in a little space.... I love it... thanks

If you haven't met Sheila visit HERE... she does a lot of interesting projects... and it is always a fun visit

I have completed my June blocks for the 'Tis The Season Stitch-A-Long - thanks to Chookyblue for the reminders.......


Christmas Joy and Elfin Sleigh

Last week I finished a UFO.... my animal junction quilt..... I bought the kit from Bec last year..... and started it...... and then of course it sat in the cupboard for a while....

I must say I do love it

the picture doesn't show the colours so well but it is a really happy and bright quilt


I had fun with the backing too....


simple straight line quilting and stripey binding


this was to be a quilt for me to have at my house..... it's quite boyish...

I may need it later this year for maybe a boy .... but there also maybe a girl

.... mmm... I have to do something about that!

I am a learner stitcher.... so I was so happy to see there are going to be some on-line blog lessons

Lovely work - all of it. The quilt is perfect for a boy - but maybe its a girl needing one. Oh well something to work on isnt it.

You sure are keeping busy.

Great gifts and darling blocks, and what a wonderful quilt! Such cute little blocks and happy colors. LOVE what you did on the back.

The block you received from Sheila is soooo cute! And of course her fabric landscapes are amazing. I, too, have one and just love it!

Your quilt is also quite awesome....and your stitcheries are just fabulous, as always! Might have to check out that link for the stitching lessons....of course, I might have my hands full with the crocheting I'm going to be learning! LOL!

XOXO,

Cyndi
