W.I.P. from Portugal;)

Lately I only do the stitch of my "Gardener's Journal". I'm waiting for Santa Claus to bring me a Bernina, to do the patchwork!! Until then I will continue to embroider.

I 'm super excited when I see  all these beautiful works and it motivates me to continue. Congratulations  to all for the gorgeous, wonderful..... (I don't have words to describe!!!)  stitch and patch I saw here. 

I've  already  beginning with the preparation for Christmas  that it takes much of my time because my  lovely family is very big. But I 'm happy spending my time to do things that I like to those I love :)) 
Slowly......... but I will get there! Take a look...

Your stitcheries look terrific, nice colours... you will love a new Bernina, I got one last year and I love it... hope your Christmas wish comes true....

I was so thinking the same thing...doing the stitcheries then the piecing later. I'm really not a sewer but I am actually thinking of pulling out the old Singer and actually piece a quilt! I have only made one paper pieced quilt but many hand made blocks! I feel much better now! Thanks...
