Stitching A Long for Christmas ......

This months Stitch-A-Long is a very cute Christmas hanging

Thanks to Chookyblue for choosing lots of different and lovely projects to do this year...

I found a little rusty hanger for it and added little rusty bells onto the ends of the prairie points....


... it's only 8 months till Christmas..... 

I'm linking up with Narelles' 1 Christmas Item - I'm sure there will be a few other things I see there that will go on my list....

I have also made my 9 patch blocks for this months swap....


.. and here are the 3 sets I have done so far....


Thanks Trish.... 9 patches in Reproduction prints.. what's not to love about that???

Righto, Gotto Go..... this pumpkin plant just volunteered to grown in my garden... it needs a bit of water...
