Stitching in February

Hello my friends.
I have a finish and some progress
on a few projects not shown earlier.
This first one is from `Circle of Friends`
sent from The Silver Needle.
Forever Friends by summer House Stitche Workes.


I enjoyed stitching this though I did run out of thread,
so replaced with DMC 3750 and closed the velvet 
cushion opening with DMC 3809.
Then this is the centre of 
`Coming Home` BOM by Sarah Fielke.
To complete this I have 4 more houses to go round
with some triangles.
They are nearly ready to add on. 


Well thanks for visiting but time to go as Grandies coming
here after school.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Peanut is watching `Country Calendar` a NZ programme,
with goats. It`s turned quite cold and raining hence the fire.

A week behind.

Hello my friends.
The `SAL of a difference` 
I missed last week,
but have been stitching on this project,
just forgot to blog!
A few more flowers stitched.
For some reason I can`t get the links added of others stitching along.


The passion fruit vine is still flowering as well as fruit ripening.
They look amazing.


A few stitches on my `Noel`,when it`s not so hot.


This ornament is number one,
designed by Annie Beez Folk Art,
from `Crazy Annie`s Stitching`
2019 Country Christmas Ornament Club.
Maybe this is my next start!
But at least it`s a small one to complete. :)


 I have been stitching on my `Noel` We have finished the wallpapering and at last my 
framed stitching is hanging up.
I have been rearranging things and still have a little more to finish.
Then maybe some photo`s of this.
Well must get tea on and if temp stays some stitching.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.

Sewing with others.

Hello my friends.
First I would like to welcome my new followers.
This is lovely. I also joined Instagram

Busy time`s.
I am sewing Lori Holt of

`BLOOM`
Lori had this as SAL in 2016.
Cheryll   https://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com/
Has started one for a few of us.
I brought the template set and using from my stash.
Block 1


Still to applique on but as yet while putting things away
in new sewing unit my bag with needle turn threads 
has not appeared. In due course it will.
This is safe on Lori`s board that I made.


After setting up machines I finished last month`s
Delbrook block.
My other sewing is in one of the draws that I have set aside
 for my projects on the machine to do.
So watch this space.
Happy Stitching,
Clare.
