Winner and another finish

Clare is the winner of the Bucilla Phillipians design. Please send me your postal address so I can get it out to you asap. Congratulations! xstitchlibrarian [at] gmail [dot] com

I also got another Christmas card done, the final of the 3 free designs:
Here it is before I stuck it down properly...
This one has a red button for the nose. I didn't realise they were in the kit so the other 2 are missing theirs (there was one button missing anyway). That's probably why I got the magazine cheaper in the first place.

I also managed to complete another freebie from a magazine. This is before I washed the soluble stuff off and put it in the frame that came with it. I'll finish it up tonight.
The Quilting Wholesaler's show I went to with Judith on the weekend was fascinating. We walked miles! It took us 2 hours for each aisle (my husband could have done the whole show in about 5 minutes, we took 6 hours!). I was exhausted on Sunday and slept in quite late! There is so much cool stuff available. It might have even sparked a more increased interest in patchwork... we ordered the plain materials I need for my Summer quilting project so I can't wait for them to arrive. Today I'm ordering a new sewing machine - the one I have was my husbands mother's and it doesn't work properly. Rather than spending a fortune on repairing it, and it still being 25 years old, I'm going to get a brand new one for the same cost! Very excited about that.
Happy Stitching,


  1. Lovely finished and the quilting show sounds interesting.

  2. Lovely designs! Enjoy your new sewing machine!
    Kiss to you
