A bit of stitching

Over the last few busy weeks, I have still tried to stitch as often as possible. I finished my "The Simple Life" bag last week and am very pleased with the result.
 This panel by Anni Downs is so inspiring, even if it needs an iron!

I wanted so much to stitch the pictures and have asked Anni to please make these gorgeous pictures into stitcheries. They are not too easy to trace and I had to choose my own colours! Looking forward to them being in a book next year perhaps. Here is the lovely nativity stitched and ready to make into "something" Christmassy!
Another cute little Santa came to Thursday's meeting! Well done, Caroline, he looks so good.
Just waiting for Fiona to come so we can go and get set up for Stitching on the Lake tomorrow. So looking forward to seeing everyone and to having another lovely day of stitching (and eating and chatting and fun).

Aren't you a clever thing, your stitchery looks good, and I'm sure it will give Anni some ideas. Your bag turned out well too, that ones on my to do list. Have fun tomorrow.

I love how you have stitched the Nativity block. I hope Anni releases them in stitchery form too.
