How did everyone's weekend go? I spent 2 days cutting, preparing and stitching thanks to Joy!
She added a Part B to her Finishing Stitches for this month for those who like to quilt. Part B was to finish off as many unfinished blocks as you can. Hmmm I'm wondering if she was sent to test me?? I have so many unfinished blocks waiting to become quilts or waiting to be quilted that once they are all done I'll never go cold again!
I've joined along three free BOM's as seen in my side bar by some lovely generous bloggers and another pretty one is on its way AHHHHHHHH. So I've prepared the remaining blocks I'm behind on the few I have already started and have also planned and cut out fabrics for some gifts for christmas while I'm at it! I have a lot started and on its way to becoming a finish but only have 2 pics to share at the moment of finishes. I am SO SICK OF CUTTING FABRIC....my least favourite part of any project!
First one is the first Frosty Flakes block from Dawn Hay
I really enjoyed stitching this one. The little flakes are so delicate and pretty. I'm actually doubling up on this one and currently working on a second block the same. One for me and one for my good friend in America as a christmas gift. As they have cold frosty christmases I'm hoping she will love it. I'm not usually a big christmas decorator but I loved this design and had to make it. I do love decorating the tree but as I'm wiccan the whole religious part of christmas and more traditional decorations doesn't appeal to me. The family togetherness and giving gifts to the ones you love is our christmas celebrations...as well as eating way too much!
My second finish is the first Daisy Do block from Jenny that I had to do in purple of course!
Sorry its not the best shot but those buttons just wanted to sparkle! I love Jenny's design but I'm still undecided as to whether I like it not. I think its the background colour that I don't like. I might have to add a lighter border to it when the time comes? More cutting *yawn*
Well I'm heading back to more frosty stitching and then into my nice.. warm.. electric blanket heated... soft.....snuggly...... soothing b.......zzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
