Life is About - finished & a new start...

Back-stitching all done so this is now finished! Yay.

On Saturday, I had a great day with my friend Judith as she introduced me to some amazing patchwork shops - one in Koo Wee Rup and another that is unfortunately closing down in Warburton. At the first one, I picked up some excellent fabrics to use as backings for the 2 Christmas stockings I've completed so they will be able to be sewn up after our holiday. I love the range of fabrics, how they all line up in colour order, different patterns, the possibilities are endless. Maybe I could get into patchwork one day... I'm certainly thinking about it.

Then on Sunday, I started another from this same series: "Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful"
I've just got the back-stitching to do around the word perfect - I would have finished it except that I got halfway through and found a mistake that required 4 letters to be unpicked and redone... I suppose it's better to find it earlier rather then later!
Happy Stitching,


  1. You always amaze me with how quickly you get to a finish, and so beautifully stitched! Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. Lovely finish Kerrie, you seem to fly through your stitching.

  4. What a great design and a beautiful finish! Congrats on the happy dance.
    (and another thing to add to my growing stash wish list...)

  5. Congratulations on the Happy Dance. Looking forward to seeing the new piece grow.
