February items.

February 25th has rolled around again. I had been undecided what to make so I started a few things in the hope that I could finish at least one!
I have managed to finish three. I was going to save two so that if I had a bad month I could have them as back up but thought I would just post them anyway and I will have credit!
I made this Hugs and Kisses pattern that I won on Helen Stubing's blog into a cushion instead of a table runner. I hope to stitch another piece with this pattern and make it into the runner.

these two little stitcheries were left over from last year's stitching efforts and I didn't get to sew them into anything so thought they could become candle mats or mug rugs. One in blue and one in red matched the Park avenue fabrics perfectly I think.
I have planned next months project, it involves the lovely felted wool Fiona gave me.
Nothing like being prepared!
Hope you are all keeping on track with your targets.
Marina



My Thoughts are with the victims of the New Zealand earthquake. We watch the news intently in the hope of good news with respect to survivors. The rescue teams are just amazing.
Let there be miracles!

Those fabrics look great with those gorgeous little stitcheries. Please don't let any wax or tea spill onto them.
The LIB block is perfect for the occasion.

Beautiful projects Marina. Gorgeous fabrics. I had a candle holder like yours but one of my fur babies broke it running away from my bonus son. :(

These are beautiful, and that little bird stitchery is a really cute design. I really like the idea of candle mats, because I love candles, so thanks for that one.
