Popping by to update the blog and then it's adios, amigos. Friends of ours have won a week at a resort in Mexico and have invited us to go with them. Yipee!! Mexico bound we are in the morning.
Stitching away on a gift that I cannot show you.
I did however receive a note from Rowyn saying she had received the Christmas exchange I sent her.
I stitched for her the Brittercup Kittie from the 2010 JCS Ornament Magazine and included a couple of little extras.
I have been trying to decide for a while what to do with my Fair and Square blocks and this is what I came up with. Grant it this is just the top and I have much more work to do. I was so thrilled that I wanted to show it off.
There are a couple of sets that I did not use in the wall hanging. Melissa W.'s set made a lovely pillow. Karen R. stitched me a wonderful nutcracker that will be an ornament.
I have been making a couple quilt blocks too. Every year the ladies quilt group makes blocks that we sew togetherand make into a raffle quilt to raise money for the local mission. This year we are making house blocks.
Here are my two blocks. Of course, one had to be a light house!
Well, off to finish packing. My stitching is coming with me and I will see what I can accomplish.
I read my way through all the blogs - over 650. I am sorry that I did not comment. I didn't know where to start. You are all so amazing and I love reading all the wonderful things you write and the gorgeous stitching that you do.
I will try to post from Mexico. The hotel is supposed to have internet. Until then - adios!!!!
