I was trying to keep these post weekly but I have done so much on the past week that this is gonna be a long one again.
Last week Jenny came to visit me. She is into Quilting at the moment, and is dragging me to her new hobby. This is not a complaint and Im enjoying lots learning the new technique but hubby is already moaning about fabrics and pins everywhere. I reckon he will have to learn how to live with it : )
So the first project I've finished is a needle/scissors/bits case. The pattern is from The Stitch Witch and outer fabric used is from Kilbora Quil Shoppe. All bought last RDS show and I just couldn't wait to make it and put all my bits in it.

Second project was my Stocking for Christmas. I bought this pattern/fabric from the Limerick Quilting Centre. The lovely lady at the stall said it was an easy project, not that easy if you are a totally beginner. We did manage to make 4 of them (2 for me and 2 for Jenny) and it was fun trying to add embellishments. I have decided to leave mine without them, apart from the little square and pearl in one of them (left side one).

And then I started a new stitching project. It is a LHN pattern called ' Home of a Needleworker (too)' (you can see it here). I had to replace the threads from the pattern as I dont have any Crescent Colour in my stash so Im using Anchor/DMC and Week Dies Threads. This is what I got so far, and I reckon it wont take me too long to finish.

I guess that's all for now. As I said, busy busy week but got lots done. Ah! On top of all this, I got my Christmas cards nearly all ready to post when December comes. I have been making them all through the year and I'm very pleased I'm not in a rush now to sort them.
