Wednesday Stitching

I had a lovely day yesterday as Fiona came to Canberra for a quick visit. It was lovely to spend the day stitching, shopping and chatting. We went to stitching at Hobbysew and then had lunch and shopped (just a bit)! We did spend some time planning the May stitching days as well. Fiona was stitching on this little canvas work scissor keeper. I had made this one a while ago but my kit had brighter colours. I do love these softer ones and may have to make another one.
Marilyn had finished her beautiful canvas stocking and it looks lovely. We really appreciated all the metallic threads she had used as they are a pain to work with.
I managed to add the borders to the 6th block of the My Garden BOM. I foundation pieced them and still managed to get a wonky strip! I think I do rush a bit.
I hope to (carefully) put the borders on the 7th block today.
Fiona is having a giveaway as she has been blogging for two years. You just need make a comment on her January 18th post to be in the draw. I'd best comment too! Just realised that 2 years must be coming up for me too!
