Stitching Show and tell

So good to catch up with the social stitching ladies this week at Hobbysew. On Tuesday, Shirley brought in her beautiful "Starry Starry Nights" quilt. It has been professionally quilted by Robyn and it looks wonderful. Shirley chose to have plain outer borders instead of stars all around and I think the result is great. Also it would have been a lot less work!
Barbara has been away on a lovely cruise and managed to get lots of stitching done. Isn't this a lovely Christmas stitchery?
On Wednesday, Paddy had two amazing quilts to show us. She has been making this village quilt as a BOM and it looks so lovely. Paddy needleturned all her houses and they are so special.
Paddy has also finished her owls Mystery quilt too. It looks so wonderful. I am amazed at how much Paddy is able to achieve! It is a lovely BOM designed by Cathy Stevenson and you can get the patterns from Hobbysew.
Paddy also received this beautiful stocking for Christmas. I gather it had lollies in it! Yum.
I had to get the paints out yesterday to paint some buttons for a cushion we are making in Term 1.
Here they are all painted and ready to stitch onto the cushion. The buttons are from Laraine at "Up in Annies Room" and we have them at the shop.
