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.

We are now in lockdown here in Canberra too. We have been so lucky here really, so we must try and do our best to stay home and stop that dreaded virus! So lots of time and just need to find a little motivation to get going on my many projects. We just managed to have our stitching catchups on Wednesday. Roni has been so busy. Last week she had made these delightful Christmas cushions.
