Patience Is A Virtue

Hello Again
Goodness, I feel like the number 7 bus: nothing for weeks then 3 posts in a row πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
I had to post again today after finding these wonderful coaster buddies in my mail box.
My uber talented swap partner from Canada mailed me my box of goodies back in August. I think you’ll agree they were certainly worth the wait πŸ™‚

Enjoy, I will…..

Christmas Isa Coming & So Isa Nother Swap

Hello Everyone
Hot on the heels of the Autumn Coaster Swap from Michele Foster is a Mini Christmas Stocking Swap designed by Stitching Cow. Hooray πŸ™‚

http://stitchingcow.com/

I wonder who I’ll be sending these to?

Below are the stockings I completed today along with a hand stitched stocking made by my little boy. Still a work in progress this is all his own idea and his own work, no intervention from mummy πŸ™‚

Rock on my son!
Enjoy

Tempus Fugit

Hello Everyone.
WOW! Where has the time gone?
It seems like yesterday summer was rolling in and now autumn is upon us…
At least the scorching heat is giving way to cooler mornings and balmy evenings, my second favourite time of year here in Dubai. Perfect for hitting the beach and playing in the sand and surf πŸ™‚

Well, below are photos of my latest offerings for the Fall Inspired Mug Rug Swap organised by Michele Foster from the Quilting Gallery.
This time my recipient is in Belgium πŸ™‚
Enjoy
Lots of love

Fall-Inspired Mug Rugs Swap

Hello Everyone
This week I’ve been brought down to earth with a bit of a bump by a reminder that autumn is almost upon us!
What a long hot summer it’s been here. While my blog may have been quiet I have been very busy, not least with having a go at making a double wedding ring runner. More to come on that one.

Well, along with the reminder was an invitation to take part in another mug rug swap πŸ™‚ Hooray!
If you have seen my previous posts, you will know that I’m a big fan.
Take a look at the link, why not join in and have a go?

Decision Made

Hello Again Friends

Decision made πŸ™‚
I stepped outside my comfort zone, left behind my beloved blanket stitch and went for the naΓ―ve look.
It was surprisingly more tricky to do than I thought, but overall I’m quietly pleased with the results.

Take a look and let me know what you think….

Next to create the backs, maybe pinwheels, maybe…… oh the sweet agony of another creative decision πŸ™‚

That’s all for now folks.
Enjoy πŸ™‚

The Early Birdie Catches the Worm

Hello Again
I don’t usually post up twice in one day, but I’m so happy to be back at my sewing machine trying out Vicki Ruebel’s Little Buddy Coasters for Michel Foster’s swap.
I’ve been messing about with different applique techniques and really cannot decide which one to do.
Take a peep and let me know which one you like best.
Enjoy, I certainly have πŸ™‚
While you’re at it, why not check out Vicki’s blog?
