Winter Sunshine


We are having a perfect Winter weekend weather wise, so lovely and warm during the day and cold enough for a fire in the evening.....  

And with a lot of restrictions down it is lovely to be out and about a bit.... weeks are going fast ....

Last week I finished off sewing the Hollyhock block....


On Thursday during sit and sew with Michelle I sewed up the edges for all these crochet squares..... 


they are different sizes so I will sort them out with rounds of the navy blue


 Thanks Cheryll for hosting FNWF on Friday night.... this stitchery got finished ......


I still have a lot more but I am hoping to prep up some applique and do a bit of that next week

In between quilt jobs I quickly quilted my two little placemats.... nothing very exciting... just to hold them all together....


Righto, Gotto Go.....things to do, places to see, coffee to drink.... never enough time to do all what I want but giving it the best I can...

I hope you are having a lovely weekend....

Your embroidery is so pretty, Fiona! We have the fire burning as we speak; this side of the house is in shade from early afternoon so the fire helps stop it cooling down too much.

Both stitchery blocks are just gorgeous. What stitch did you do on the flowers on the second one Fiona???
Great to get the crochet blocks done as well as the quilting on the place mats.

Your embroidery looks beautiful! You must have so much patience. Your two placemats are nice and cheery. Making new placemats has been on my list all winter. Now it’s on my summer list!

Good luck with your crochet blocks. They are piling up, too.
And well done getting the placemats quilted.
Sounds like the fireplace is getting a good workout!
