For Christmas

Today I put together a Table Runner for my mum for Christmas along with a quilted wall hanging for my sister's mother in law, Wyn.  I am getting ready early this year.  I still need to finish Miss Emalee's fairy and I have a cushion to put together for my sisters sister in law, Mandy.  Everyone loves what I do but -one has ever received anything handmade by me before.  I just know they are going to love them.

The table runner is 93 1/2 inches long.  There are 6 of the white panels with 5 red circles.  It will really suit her modern decor.

Love Lissy

Lizzie Kate's Boo Club is all finsihed

And I am pretty pleased with the result.  This is my 3rd cross stitch finish in 2 years.  Next to be finished will be Letters from Nora's "E" for my neice for christmas which will also be a banner.  And now that Boo Club is finished I am going to start Sweet Treats, our Fab 4 project for our next get together weekend in June 2012.

All Cooped Up

I spent the weekend working on putting the quilt top together only to find that I didn't have quite enough of the outside border with the size I chose to use and the fact that I decided the wood grain needed to go in the one direction.  Now I have to find something else or order a full yard from the US.  I will see what I can find before deciding.  This is how it looks right now.
