Some stitching....

These tag blocks are just great for small pick up and go stitching and as they are all in the same thread they are very relaxing to do....

It's hard to stop once I get going and I have to remember I have other things to do also!

I'm so glad this quilt was pointed out for a Stitch-a-long... I never knew about it before and it really is very sweet....

No Fuss Christmas Swap

I thought it might be nice to run a little swap for Christmas and this should also run with the present stitch-a-long theme of Ruth's Quilt.
Now seeing as some of us are having internet issues still (one of the reasons we stopped running our swaps), I thought we would make this swap open to non bloggers as well, but you do have to have been part of any  of our swap or Ruth’s stitch-a-long previously.
This is not a compulsory swap - only join in if you have the time to participate and are interested in having a little fun..

The Rules - 1.  Add your name to this post if you wish to join in by the 19th November.
                         I will post  your partners on the 20th.
                    2.  It will be a down the line swap - number 1 makes for 2, 2 makes for 3 etc.
                    3.  Opening day will be Christmas day so posting should be done well and truly
                         by this day - please allow for our slow postal service and Christmas rush.. we would
                         hate for anyone to be disappointed.
                    4.  When you send and receive just drop me a line and I will mark you off on the
                         side of the blog...
                    5.  Contact your swap buddies personally via email to exchange postal addresses.

The Requirements - 5 items needed for this swap..

 1.  Make something with a Ruth's quilt tag.  Choose a tag - any tag or design your own tag  and
      make something with it - a pin cushion, a needle book, a Christmas ornie, a bookmark -  don't
      let my examples uninspire you - you might have your own ideas on how you could
      incorporate one of the tags. Don't go over board - keep it simple and small...
  2.  1 x  Christmas tea-towel
  3.  1 x Piece of lace - 50cm
  4.  1 x Christmas button
  5.  1 x Small Christmas themed treat..

Individually wrap your gifts and put them in a small box, gift bag etc to be opened on Christmas day.
Remember - we do "No Fuss" swaps so don't get too stressed - it's meant to be a bit of fun.

If you have any questions then drop me a line and I will do the best to answer you asap - and don't leave it too long to contact me if you can not get hold of your swap partner for their address..

Well that's all - Who is in????



Slow and steady……

And, I am still plodding along……


Four done and four more ready to go….
