my saturday ...

today I have had a good go at getting some niggly bits and pieces done..
I managed to conquer the stitching on the stitching around the block piece, boy talk about hard work, it took me three goes to get it decent.Oh and that chocolate bar Fiona included helped provide some comfort too!
Now it will be ready to make it's way to Carol.

Here are some more Christmas goodies....
These I finished off today. Quite happy with the result.

I think these two little girlies are just so cute and they will look lovely on the Christmas tree.
Hubby bought me some dowel to put in my cotton reels for the yo yo Christmas trees so can't wait to make them up!
Once they are done I have some more christmas stitcheries to work on as pressies for friends.
I am itching to get back to my hexies and to start a new hexie project!
Here is my Hexie top update, since this pick a month ago I have added another couple of rows but you can see how it is growing........
I only have a few more rows and I will have exhausted my scrappy flowers. It will make a pretty bed topper I think.
Have a lovely weekend....
cheers

Goodness Marina, how many photos do you need?! ;-)

The little hexagons look great. Sounds like you have had a productive Saturday. So many Christmas goodies already made!!
I've just got home from my quilting group. I have sewn the binding on the front so now just have the handstitching of the back to do.

Great stitcheries..... I'm surprised those little hexies haven't put you off for life!!! Lovely little yoyo's - something else I haven't done.... I love it with the Santa stitchery....

No flies on you Marina. You will be very ready for Christmas (unlike myself - again!)
Those ornaments are very pretty. I like the one with the hanging decorations. Is it available online?
