I have been stitching up a storm the past few weeks , finishing some projects and starting some new ones. First I would like to show you a stunning pincushion that was made for me by one of my friends in my patchwork groups. She makes them to order and I chose purple, ofcourse!
Yes. a hat!! I thought it was too good to stick pins in so I asked my mum if she had any old hat pins. She did, so now they are proudly displayed in my hat. Now my hat sits with the collection of pin cushions that I have made.
I was hand quilting the other Civil War doll quilt on my last post. It is now finished. Da da!!! Here it is.

I have been doing a few stitcheries, some for pressies and one for me. Here is mine but I am not sure whether to just frame it or make it into something. Any ideas?

This stitchery is for a pressie and shall be made into something useful and cute.

Meanwhile I have been doing some Christmas stitcheries  and have just washed some new Civil War and 1800s reproduction fabrics for my next hand pieced project which I am starting at a patchwork retreat next month. I have 2 labels ready to make for the 2 doll quilts and really must get on to quilting the " T for Temperance" doll quilt.

Thanks for stopping by and I send you all angel blessings.
