Last ones.

My last 4 stitcheries are done along with a label.

Now to cut out the other fabric & get it into a top at least.

I managed to get a copy of Romancing The Road. Luckily the lady who i bought Ruth's Dream from still had her copy to sell. :)
Yay for me so i'm ready to stitch along next year. Well i will be once i decide on threads & fabric choices. :)

Happy stitching,

BIGGGGG NEWS..............

I have been asked (hinted at/ hassled) if there might be another stitch-a-long next year....
I just kept saying  " NO "  but after much chatter at our  last retreat "Lynda" suggested an excellent project.....
So here is the official new project for 2019........



Yes another Leanne Beasley quilt....
like Ruth's quilt it has lots of small simple stitcheries and piecing.....
I know that getting this book could be a problem
  ( maybe beg borrow or steal...oops no don't do that ) 
 possibly many of you already have it tucked away in the sewing room.......

I do hope you will join in next year......

Keep up the good work with the present project, hopefully we can get photos of  all the completed quilts to put in a page heading at the top of the blog......
If you have already finished please send me a photo by email and I will add it to the above page.....
As we get closer to 2019  I will put this post up again.....

Thanks for being a part of our stitch-a-long.....

Dragging my heels again....

Thank goodness we don't have quilting police here....lol.....
Here are my last months stitcheries......


Nearly there.....

Trimming The Stitcheries

The embroideries have languished long enough in their tub... it's time to trim the back, & work towards making a quilt top!
I'm off the Retreat soon, so that will be a good time for me to start sewing it together.
I really want to finish this quilt in the year mentioned on that stitchery... 2018!
 Great to see everyone's quilts either finished, the top done, & still making progress with the stitching... progress is progress, never minimise your own efforts!

Bye For Now ♥

3 More Done ... 5 To Go

These next three just seemed to stitch up so quickly.


This makes 30 tags and the last 5 are traced off ... I've even started stitching the next one. Getting excited now about putting it all together whenever that opportunity may arise.

Getting There


24 tags finished so far and the rest are traced out now so hopefully i will be putting it altogether soon.
I have enjoyed seeing the finished ones and it is spurring me to get a move on,lol.
Thankyou ladies.
Cheers Shez xx
