 On my mission to complete some UFOs I have come up against a couple of obstacles. With all my fabric stash why oh why can I not find a suitable choice for sashings? I either have the wrong shade of a colour or not enough in the colour I like. After much auditioning and musing with a stitching friend I have decided I need to go fabric shopping. Oh dear! How sad! LOL Looks like that particular UFO is temporarily on hold.  However, I did find a suitable fabric to back and bind my hexie table mat I am making from the Rosalie Q BOM stitcheries.

I have traced and selected threads  (as well as fabric that I did have in my stash...enough of it too!) to stitch this beautiful free design from Jenny. I am stitching the design twice to put at each end of a table runner. I am also planning thread and fabric colours to stitch Jenny's March stitchery club collection of designs which are beautiful. I shall probably have a pic of that soon. 
Last weekend was my big 0 birthday and I received a beautiful gift from dear Barb . The most gorgeous little stitchery and yummy choccie were wrapped in a lovely Leannette Anderson fabric. Thankyou so much Barb. I love my pressies.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a pic of the framed stitchery I made for Barb's birthday. Hopefully Barb will send me a copy if I am really nice to her. 
Thanks again for stopping by.
