A quilt and some stitching...

After Christmas, my daughter Lyndal and I made a quilt for my other daughter Amy. I must admit to doing less on this quilt than Lyndal but we still shared most of the jobs. It was for Amy's birthday and to replace her wedding quilt which is almost worn out as it has been used so often.

I have continued to keep up with the Stitch Therapy 365 quilt. These are fun to stitch.

 I also managed to finish my map of the UK and then put together block 8 of Here, There and Everwhere.
I will probably be unable to post over the next week as we are heading away on a cruise. From tomorrow our home will be on this ship! Can't wait! We are looking forward to being a little cooler as it has been so hot recently.

Stitching and blog book...

It was so  lovely to receive my 2018 blog book last week. It is so nice to flick through the pages and remember the year of family, holidays and stitching

 My main stitching has been keeping up with Stitch Therapy 365. I am enjoying this daily stitching very much.

 Here are a few of the stitcheries together in the top left hand corner.
Other than that, I have been working on my map for Here, There and Everywhere. The ocean takes so long to stitch. Should be done by my next post!

Holiday stitching

Even though I am not away on holidays, there are less things on so there is a bit more time for stitching. I am enjoying the daily stitching on Stitch Therapy 365. Here are my last few blocks.

I have also been working on Here, There and Everywhere too. Just need to make the map for this block.
 My other project has been to work on this stitchery. Lots of fun stitching on this one. It is one of the Artists Series from Thread Folk.
 This cross stitch became a decoration after Christmas.....ready for next Christmas.
 I also received this lovely gift from Paddy. Thank you so much for my gorgeous decorations and the delicious fruit.
 We had stitching on Wednesday so it was lovely to catch up with everyone again. Lynne came in to show us this amazing cross stitch!

 Roni has also made this delightful decoration!
I finally put the decorations away. I do love them but putting them up and away are big jobs!

Happy New Year

Happy new year everyone. Thank you again for continuing to visit my blog. I still enjoy posting and plan to continue. This blog is a bit like a diary of daily doings and especially stitching progress and I do enjoy looking back at the posts and remembering holidays, family doings and stitching, of course. It is very hot here this week and we are very thankful for cooling. I have begun my new year's project. I signed up for Helen Stubbings' Stitch Therapy 365 which is one stitchery per day all year! Here are the first 2.

 I did manage to finish part 7 of Here, There and Everywhere recently and am now working on part 8.

 I started this cross stitch way before Christmas but got back into it recently. Of course it needs making into something!
These little decorations were made as gifts before Christmas. They are from a Marg Low pattern.
