December FNWF.....

... and that's the last FNWF of the year..... thanks so much to Cheryll for hosting us all year long... most months there are about 50 of us sewing ....

We have the widget staying with us at the moment .... so the days are filled with bits and pieces ...

Widget helped to build the tree
(see ladies... I am trying to get some decorating done.....)


... and up it goes....


.... so Friday night after the widget was tuckered out and tucked into bed I collected up some sewing...


I gently stitched some pink into mouse ears....


... and finished off the needleturn scallops on this block....


... and did the stitching on the Holly Jolly bird - sewed the leaves and berries on the ric rac and added the borders in the morning
(design by Michelle Ridgeway)  



This is a gift I sent off to someone special a week or so ago....

... a little wallhanging ...


....it's a design by Kaaren from The Painted Quilt..... it is called Summer Sampler and can be find if you look down the right side bar of her blog along with lots of lovely freebies she has generously shared

Righto, Gotto Go.. there still seems lots of little fiddly things to get done around here.... hohoho
