Stitching

After enjoying making the Turtle pincushion so much I've decided to make pincushions for the Tuesday Girls as part of their Christmas presents.  When I visited The Home Patch in January I bought Anni's book "Some Kind of Wonderful" and a little kit for the pincushion - so many wonderful designs in this book.  The stitchery was traced the other afternoon and stitched over the last two nights watching the Olympics.


A nice change from sewing those tiny hexagons.  Continuing the hexagon sewing theme of late, I took out another UFO quilt yesterday afternoon:


This quilt was started over 2 years ago and 6 rows have been added since this photo.  10 more rows are ready to sew on and then I can add borders.

Eisteddfod cooking is finished for this weekend and we are now leaving to set up the hall - looking forward to some great singing over the next 2 days.
