My Favourite Things Quilt

In between the christmas shopping, cooking, wrapping gifts and working ... I am making time to do a little bit of stitching each day .... some Christmas and some current projects ..... here are a couple of completed blocks (in amongst the wrapped gifts) .... 


Mmmmm .... I am enjoying a cup of peppermint tea as I write this post!


As you can see I have opted for the blanket stitch method as I enjoy the texture of the applique!  I hope your Christmas stitching is going along nicely and you make time each day to relax and enjoy this festive season!
