Blackwork and a surprise package!!

Finished off this little free blackwork pattern with some gold stitching on it.   It is a free design from Patricia Wainwright which I have had for ages and decided to stitch!  Another Christmas decoration to add to the collection!

I was very excited when David bought the mail home last night - I had a big package from "Hatched and Patched" at Bathurst!!

And inside was the beautiful fabric kit for Anni Downs "Some Kind of Wonderful" quilt!   How exciting!! 

The fabrics are so gorgeous and I kind of wish they would just make themselves up into this gorgeous quilt overnight!!   I am going to be stitching this with the "Stitch A Long" group (but not until I finish off my 'Tis the Season quilt - which is nearly done!)

Love the fabrics and the threads and would really like to be starting this today!  I do have lots of other things on my list to complete first though!!


  1. you had better hurry up and get the TTS done so you can touch those new fabrics............ gorgeous.........now back to the TTS........don't forget to share with the SAL girls........
