Tis the Season

Chookyblue mentioned this delightful book on her blog recently. The Stitch a long girls are going to do the quilt in this little book next year after we have finished the Gardener's Journal quilt. I mentioned it to the ladies at Hobbysew and we have copies at the shop if anyone is in Canberra and "needs" one. It is a lovely little book by Natalie Bird.
Here is a picture of the other projects in the book.
The stitcheries make lovely cushions. Traced one this morning in case I had time to stitch it before Christmas.
I was also lucky enough to win a lovely pattern by Helen of Hugs and Kisses. She had a very generous giveaway last week and gave away a pattern every day and I won the first one. Here it is. Lucky me and thank you, Helen.
Here is another favourite decoration. It is a design by Vivien Robinson.
