Some stitching

So nice to have a bit of time to finish a few things off. Yesterday I finished off sewing my "Judy's Dilly bag". I pieced this one using papers and enjoyed stitching them. I also loved using the very pretty Tilda fabrics.
 This little Christmas cross stitch was one of the projects from last year's stitching day. I really enjoyed the cross stitch after not having done any for a very long time. I made it up into a little cushion.
 My current project is this lovely table runner by Anni Downs. I have had the pattern for ages and decided to start! Choosing the fabrics for the houses, doors and roofs was good fun!

I am trying to get a few of Anni's patterns made (mind you I have made many in the past) ready for first term's Stitching for Pleasure classes at Hobbysew. Anni has so many gorgeous books and patterns to choose from.
