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.

Now I am in the process of hand quilting the Shoo Fly doll's quilt that I showed you.
I also completed the top of the " T for Temperance" doll's quilt which will be much quicker to hand quilt than the other 2.
I have really enjoyed making these completely by hand. Small quilts seem to be far less daunting than larger ones and they have helped me master some skills. I am already planning my next one which is slightly larger than the others. I guess I willl have to go and find some more Civil War repro fabrics now. Hehehehehe.
Meanwhile ,I have been thinking about Christmas projects and gifts. I managed to make this little mat from Gail Pan's Christmas book.
What happened to my Crazy Cats? I have been appliquing them and only have 3 left to make with only one awaiting preparation. Woohooo, nearly there!
Here are the cats who have their whiskers and faces on. Although, I may need to sew buttons on for their eyes . I can't really see some of there eyes that I have stitched. What do you think?
