Our local show was last Saturday so I decided to enter the pin cushion and Easter basket along with the Christmas Swag that I finished for last Christmas. Not only did I win a 2nd place in the pin cushion class ... but to my surprise when I checked through the pavilion ...
there was my Christmas Swag with a 1st place and Champion ribbon ... talk about gob smacked! Bit of a brag photo I know but such a pleasant surprise. I did take my camera on the day but as I work in the office, there just wasn't the time for other photos but we do have a wonderful display of flowers, plants, cookery, produce, art and handcraft and a great little show!
Back to work this week but I stitched a little each night and Thursday was able to put my 1st block of 'A Merry Christmas Garden' together.
Fairly comfortable with the needle turn method now but the next block will have to wait a little. I have my next block for LMF half stitched, 2 more blocks sitting in their packets and the next 2 blocks ready to pick up so I have some blanket stitching to get cracking on. Our first grandchild is due early July so I would like to have the quilt finished not too long after. I don't get the last of the blocks till end of July. Then there will be the sewing together and quilting.
Wishing all a creative weekend. >^..^<
