Stitch it for Christmas!!

I was very excited on Friday to receive my own signed copy of Lynette Anderson's new book - "Stitch It for Christmas" ... it has some lovely things to make ....  

There are some very cute Christmas decorations and little stockings!

And an adorable Christmas cushion ...

Not much stitching on the weekend .... just lots of painting and gardening .... I'm over that now!!   Hope our son likes the look of what we have done to his house in his absence overseas!!   I did manage to iron on this "Basket of Flowers" block for "My Favourite Things" quilt ...  not stitched yet though ...

And finished off stitching my "Family and Friends" block !!  I'm really enjoying putting together the final row for this quilt!


  1. Lynette is very talented, I'm sure you will make lots of lovely projects from that book. Enjoy seeing your son again.

  2. Sounds like you had a very productive weekend.

  3. look forward to seeing all the lovely projects that you make from Lynette's new book

    you blocks look great

  4. I'd be excited too Fiona at that book...I'm sure you will get heaps of inspiration from it...You must be so excited to have your Son coming home, I'm sure he will appreciate what you have done!
