We celebrated two birthdays over the last few weeks. They were both celebrated outside and socially distanced. Still as we all live close by, at least we could celebrate a little. Firstly, our son-in-law celebrated his 40th birthday.

I have felt more like stitching lately. I started to sew my houses, the Moda Village houses, into rows and that really spurred me on to make more of them. I decided to do 9 houses across by 8 down and here they are. Now the quilt needs borders. I have only used scraps and was not sure how they would look but am pleased.

Having crafty hobbies certainly helps you in lockdown. I should be doing more but have been plodding away as well as reading and occassionally having a walk.....not often enough! I did walk a long way on Wednesday with Beth and Roni. We walked 8 kms! I was quite sore afterwards but really enjoyed catching up with the ladies. Roni had a little show and tell too. Just check out this amazing scarf, decorated with punch needle circles!
Roni has also made this cute Christmas pillow.
I have made up a few cushions using various stitched fronts. This one was an applique class that I enjoyed with Michelle Hill......many years ago.
These are made using the Love and Hugs stitcheries from last year.
Other than that I have been still enjoying the Tiny Treasures stitcheries. I have even begun putting the hexies together as I keep running out!
We have seen the grandies regularly outside. We meet them for a walk or a picnic which is fun. We are so lucky they live up the road!

The days certainly fly by when you are in lockdown! I wish I would use the time a bit more usefully but it is hard to get motivated. I am loving the Tiny Treasures book by Kathy Schmitz and am making lots of those as I watch too much television.
