Back in Blogland!

After an unplanned but necessary blog break here I am again! Last month I took part in Christmas in July over at Quilt Fabric Delights. This Holly  Pincushion, designed by Gail Pan, was one of the many lovely patterns I received.

 I used some Glace on the back. After last month's dismal tally at least I'll have one finish for OPAM in August.

The stitchery below is another I received from QFD's Christmas in July. Once again it's a Gail Pan design and will be the centre of a wallhanging called This Christmas Night.

During my absence I managed to finish stitching all the mini blocks for Tail Feathers and today I sewed the nine centre blocks together. Looks good, but I'm waiting for some better weather before I take it outside for a photo shoot.

If you read last month's Homespun (No 86) you might have noticed I made the Readers' Showcase pages. Just a bit exciting!!


  1. Love the pincushion Christine.....your in print, how your little block....I have just started T.F. can't wait to see your middle blocks together...

  2. Love your pincushion. Auntie's is up in lights well in the Homespun magazine any way.
