Kits and kits and a little stitching

There hasn't been much time to stitch lately as I have been very busy making kits for the Stitching on the Lake day and the Queanbeyan day happening in a few weeks. Such a relief to get most of them done.
I did manage to finish the fourth block of this little Christmas quilt by Cinderberry Stitches. I had to wash this block as some of the iron on transfer was still visible and the DMC thread bled a little. I have never had that happen before! I think it will be OK but it was a little disappointing. I did stitch on patchwork fabric instead of homespun this time and perhaps that made a difference.
I also managed to stitch together my last project for the stitching day and here is a little glimpse. I just had to use the lovely sampler fabric by Blackbird designs.
