My Favourite Things Quilt and Christmas

In between wrapping gifts, shopping, Christmas stitching ..... oh ... and work .... I have been stitching a bit of "My Favourite Things" quilt by Anni Downs.   I opted for the blanket stitching option rather than needleturn because I enjoy blanket stitching and like the texture of the applique!   Here are a couple of my first row of blocks!

I enjoyed stitching all of these blocks!   Mmmmm .....  cup of tea as I write this!

No need for the umbrella today here!!

Another stitched decoration on my Christmas tree!

And a cheery Santa near the top of my tree!

I love this handpainted Christmas decoration from my sister - from Big Sky, Montana!   I hope all your days are filled with Christmas peace at the moment!  


  1. I just saw your blocks on the SAL blog and they look wonderful. Well done...must get started! Your decorations look lovely too.

  2. That handpainted decoration from your sister is gorgeous. I love your stitchery one too. Merry Christmas. Tracee xx
