Posting progress pics at last

 I have been neglecting my blog, time is whizzing by and I just couldn't get round to posting here!
But here is my progress at last.. I have nearly completed all the stitching on my Cut Thro Beach Hut and love the way it is turning out.  There is still a lot to do and of course then all the outline straight stitching but it will get done eventually!
 And I have spent a little time stitching this lovely design Fairies at the Bottom of our Garden.
I love this.. sorry for the creased state of the linen.
As well as this I am knitting myself a big cardigan.
Something to do for a change.
I am also getting on well with the quilt using this fabric...as it will be a wedding present I can't show is here. but I can say I have finished the centre 9 blocks sewn by hand and they look very nice.
Each block is a different design and they will be set on point with the wine colour red as sashing.
Lots more to do on it and then the borders and quilting so this is a big project for me!

With Christmas getting very near I will be starting all manner of Christmas presents and cards next month, which I always love doing... exciting times ahead! I shall be a busy little bee.
Hope you all are having a beautiful day.

Good Morning Chris, You are progressing and that is the main thing while we keep our hands very busy. I love your quilt you made in the previous post. I have one that I keep on our bed and they are really warm. I will look forward to seeing your sweater when it is finished. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
