A couple of weeks ago, I finished Chapter 6 of Truly Scrumptious. Only 4 more to go. There is actually 9 in this BOM, but one is a bonus, and I thought I would do them all and then choose which 9 I would like in the top - the spare one I might make into a bag ....... maybe!! I wont be getting back into this for a little while as I have Bec's Xmas Tree Ornie to finish and my 'giveaway'!!
I have been going great with Peg's Challenge and have already quilted the main block - which doesn't not take much at all (unsure if to quilt around the writing as yet) and also finished the side block! I am very happy with my stitches, not TOO uneven and am really getting the hang of this Thimblelady technique!
I decided not to quilt in the ditch as I am using cream DMC Pearl thread and wanted the stitches to be shown: (the black thread is my basting thread lol)
What a LOVELY surprise from Lynda on Thursday!! She made me this beautiful cushion. Aren't I lucky??!! She has used a red variegated thread - I think and I have put this in my dining room on a cane chest I have in there!! Looks great!! Thankyou SO much Lynda xx
Ok, this is my 99th post!! YAY!! 99 post since 27/1/07!! So, to help me celebrate I am having a giveaway on my 100th post. So, keep checking here to see what the prize is (if you have not already guessed). Hopefully get around to it on Wed/Thurs........
PS: Did you know that Rosalie Quinlan's new book 'Gift' is out (well its on its way to the shops)?? I have pre-ordered mine from Kerry - cant wait to recieve it!!!
