Put on your dancing shoes and dance with me!

I had an urge to get this finished and stitched until I had.. Rosewood Manor Quakers and Quilts stitched on 32C Antique white linen.. so what shall I do with it. I now have six large finished projects waiting to be framed!
Not too good photos I am afraid but I must have my camera on the wrong setting but I can't take colour true pics. This Celtic lady Summer only needs a few more beads and her eye and face outlined. So near a finish which I will try to do this coming week.
I have had a good September of stitching having stitched these, plus my Christmas ornie and Busy Needle which was the Traveling chart and still has to be made up.
As well as these I have managed to sew a patchwork tote bag and a new patch work cushion for a bed room chair. When I can get my camera back to normal I shall take some pics of them all.

Happy Stitching all

A Christmas Ornie and a pin cushion.

I have been busy sewing again and this little pin cushion was very fiddly but I love the way it turned out. It came from the book I showed last month.. lots more to sew from it, it cost a lot but was worth it.

These hexagons were especially fiddly to sew as they were so small..
And this is my latest Christmas Ornie.
A freebee but I can't remember where I got it from. Stitched on 28c evenweave with DMC threads.
I made it up into this little cushion with some extra fabrics because it was rather small.
I really like it... only three more ornies to go for Christmas! It's that time already to make my christmas cakes!
Happy Days All

A beautiful postcard....

Look what the postie delivered  this morning. Isn't it beautiful?
It has been made for me by Rosemary,  someone in the Sampler Guild, who I see at the Canvey get together twice a year.
Here are some of the other postcards made by members of the Canvey group..
It's planned again for a saturday in October, so I can't wait. It's always a great day and the bring and share meal is always fantastic. One member always makes the most lush chocolate cake, worth breaking my diet for!
Too little stitching but lots of chatting and looking at what other members have made makes the day a perfect time.
Roll on October.

Happy Stitching
