Friday catch-up

Isn't winter the perfect season for sewing?  I like nothing better than knowing I will be home in the evening in front of the fire and getting a little bit more done on my stitching.  I am working away on block 4 of the Vignette quilt and also the Joy of Christmas ...
Today, while I was out and about completing chores, I popped into a new quilt shop, The Shabby Rose, and purchased a little bundle of fat quarters and ribbon ...
Quite different from what I usually buy but it is very pretty.  Two friends have birthdays in August so I am thinking of making them hanging cushions from the Sweet Sentiments book by Natalie Bird.  Hopefully I will achieve that!!
School holidays have started today but poor Charlie and DH are both full of flu so I hope they will get better quickly.  Josh has been a real treasure, fetching and carrying for them while I was out.
Hope you all have a great weekend, happy stitching, Wendy

  2. Hi Wendy. Your new fabrics are lovely- so fresh and pretty. Your Christmas Club and Vignette stitcheries looks really nice too. I am working on my Christmas Club tonight too to give my poor fingers a rest from hand quilting. Hope Charlie and DH feel better soon.
