I'm Still Here!

I have read with excitement posts of finished TTS quilts. You guys are awesome! I have also been inspired by tablecloth posts and the wonderful colours and fabrics you are all using. In case you have no clue who I am (Let's face it, there are a lot of us here!) I have finished my blocks (I'm the blue redworker with the bright green and blue fabrics) but had so much fun stitching them I traced a second set. And since I much prefer stitching to basting quilts, this month I have started stitching that second set. In my defence I must point out that it is winter here in Melbourne now and there is nothing quite so cosy as stitching by the heater while it hails outside. (I am describing today. Such bliss!) So, a photo of my second set! Four stitcheries done and another in progress. I have gone all conventional with this set and even have red and white fabrics for the borders. The weather bureau tells me there is more chilly weather ahead this week and I see more stitching happening.

Happy stitching wherever you are and whatever the weather!
