I have really enjoyed this sew along, it was very manageable just concentrating on one task each week and I love how the angel turned out. I want to give a big thank you to Lisa for her tutorials and her encouragement along the way.
My second Sew Along is the Christmas banner and this week I stocked up on more thread and more quilter's muslin so was able to finish the Christmas tree stitchery from the previous week and I also completed the 6th stitchery ...
These are the two I finished this week. I really like the angel, isn't she cute. I have one more stitchery to do then next Saturday we get the finishing instructions. That is never my favourite part as I definitely prefer the hand stitching.
I have also made progress with my swap sewing, having completed the stitchery and today I cut out the border fabrics so just a bit more sewing to go. No photos though!
We had a late night last night for Guy Fawkes, it seems a rather strange tradition to commemorate the capture and killing of those behind the 'gunpowder plot' in 1605. These days it's really just an excuse to enjoy a bonfire and fireworks which is exactly what we did ...
Almost as impressive as the Rugby World Cup opening ... yeah right!
Yesterday and today, it feels like an icy blast is here, not exactly spring weather. In fact, I lighted the fire today when we came home from church. All set for a relaxing afternoon after the late night. I'm hoping it will start feeling like spring again this week.
Well, that was a long blog post! I'm going to catch up on some blog visiting now.
Happy stitching, Wendy.
