A boost :)

Sometimes ordering new fabrics can be just the boost I need to get busy on my current works-in-progress....you're not too shocked that I ordered some Cosmo Cricket fabrics that I mentioned the other day, are you?

(LOL...thanks for the encouragement girls :) )

So here's where we stand...

Christmas stitchery:

All hand stitching completed and borders on...just need a trip to Textile Traders for a bit of extra Riley Blake Christmas fabric to complete the backing, then I can quilt, and attach the binding and quilt label. I bought some beautiful turquoise beads to decorate the Christmas tree, and couldn't resist sewing a few on, just to see how they looked :)

Little Bluebirds:


A looooooong way from completion. I've started stitching Month 5, and there are only 7 months in total...but lots and lots of hand stitching in between. Have renewed my love affair with the colours, though, so enthusiasm is back in da house!

Will share my new project with you when my fabrics arrive. In the meantime...I'd better keep stitching!

Can't wait to see what you have planned for the new fabrics:) Your Christmas wall hanging is looking great, and I love the Little Blue birds stitchery. It certainly is the perfect stitching weather at the moment. Can't wait for Friday...

No fair, I want to know now LOL. I will probably be away and miss what you are up to next. I might just have to start a stitching project when I get back, any suggestions!!!!
love me :-)

Glad you've got your stitching mojo back :) Both projects are looking beautiful, and I'm glad you got some of those yummy Cosmo Cricket fabrics. 3 more sleeps till Friday...
