A great stitching day.........


We have had a public holiday here today for our local agricultural show.  What a great day I have had. 

Do you ever scan your stitcheries?  I have a few times and decided to scan my favourite block from the quilt.  One idea is that you can use the scan to print out and make little gift cards with them.  Very cute and very original too.

Wouldn't it be fun to go to a garden party in pretty dresses and hats like these ladies!!


Soooooo, with a very lovely public holiday to stitch and garden, my top is together.

Two borders to go.......

Looks like I will be snuggling under this yumminess for winter.

In Stitching Fun......

Hey Leisa! Wow! Your quilt is looking FANTASTIC! Well done! Wish I had as much to show for MY show holiday, though to be fair to myself, I DID work this morning as per normal ... Highfields usually takes the Crows Nest show hol and since that's where I work ... Still ... got some applique sorted and traced the Potting shed, so not a complete loss. Can't wait to see your quilt with borders - have fun! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Your quilt looks so beautiful. Wonder how many hours you have had fun stitching and sewing together. You are far ahead of me. Too much travelling will stop me from speeding up.
