I've been working hard on my oriental square for the Quilts for Breast Cancer group which is taking a lot longer than I thought. Just for a break for a couple of nights I decided to do a quick Christmas design I found on the internet, here is a photo of how it turned out.
I really enjoyed making it as it was a change from my cross stitch project. Its sewn on some fine cotton material I found in my quilting box, as it was so fine I put a backing on to give it some thickness for ease of sewing. Think I may do another couple of these in Christmassy themes then turn them into a mini wall hanging that can come out every year with the decorations.
I recently took part in a stitching exchange with the Friendly Stitchers group I belong to. The aim was to make something that could be hung in your partners stitching place. I was paired with Abi and this is what she made for me: In the parcel was the lovely mermaid hanging, a Sun Sea & Stitching designed by Abi and a Country Cottage chart with the hand dyed threads to make it with.I love anything to do with the sea, coast so these were just right for me. Thank you Abi, I love them X
