Sashiko, a finish and some gorgeous decorations

I made it to stitching last week and Angela was choosing fabrics to complete this amazing sashiko quilt. It started as a panel and she has hand stitched all the sashiko and it is looking fantastic.

I can show a little finish. This is the lovely pouch by Leanne Beasley that I started at the Immerse stitching day. It is looking a little pink as the lining was quite a bright pink!
Popped in to see Adrienne yesterday and enjoyed seeing her lovely Christmas decorations. These caught my eye. Here is a whole tree full of Mill Hill cross stitched ornaments. Don't they look wonderful? Adrienne has stitched them all!
Here are some closeups.

It was lovely to see her felt bird and the felt pear from the stitching days as well. I do love the way Adrienne has done the bird's tail feathers.
