Two down, one to go on the stitchery front

Well I've been busy stitching away each evening in front of the tv - in between taking Sarah to look round the local 6th form colleges for next year, GULP!

Still haven't got my sister's birthday quilt sandwiched but have a relatively free weekend to knock that on the head and post it out probably next Monday.

I've finished the stitchery work on two of my three basket liners for christmas presents

The one on the beige background is for my MIL.

The tulip one is for my mum - I've worked opposite sides in the same colour, red on two and yellow on the others

As for the one I have yet to do for my niece Gemma, I've drawn up something with lots of pretty swirls and flowers dotted around which looks a bit prettier and I think more suitable for someone younger

The Four Seasons Swap is open for signers for the winter quilts - I really enjoyed doing the autumn quilt I sent to Nadine in Belgium and really loved the one I received from Wendy in the US. I've already sent in my email and have lots of ideas buzzing around my head - I think it'll be difficult keeping them just as ideas until I've finished the Christmas stuff.


Go on sign up - they don't have to be sent out until next year :o)

I am very curious to see what the baskets will look like when finished. The stitchery is lovely.
I have signed for the 4SQS winter too as I was very pleased with the Fall one.
Take care.
