weekend stitching....

Thank goodness for poor television programming! I got to spend some quality time with my sewing machine and the beautiful fabrics I received for my birthday from Els and Fiona.
I had been picturing what to do with these and I am very pleased with the result. I have made two size star blocks- three of the large and 9 of the smaller ones. They will eventually be a table runner and a table topper and will be on my to do list for the upcoming holidays. 


(please excuse the furry bum in the corner, Maisie decided to check out the blocks)

Have a lovely week!
cheers
Marina

What sweet stars Marina! They would make a fabulous quilt...as well as a stunning table topper?

Maisie looks very comfortable in your banner - but then cats always make sure they are?
