Obligations fulfilled

I spent most of today finishing up projects that I've been needing to do for a while: my pincushion for the bee a brit stingy swap (can't show you as its a suprise) and a couple of siggy blocks for bees, a few other projects and generally catching up.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been busy EPP'ing Christmas Rose Stars 

 I have even been some whilst sitting in the car between school visits or before I have been presenting training, it has really made that time whizz past

 I'm really pleased with how they have turned out and amazed that I have done anything Christmassy so early (I think its only because its EPP!)

 I bought the green material from Justine: its called Holly and its a fabulous green.  I am thinking along these lines:


Make it in to a wall hanging : probably with the green a bit narrower and some gold or white sashing around the outside: what do you think?

And, oh yes, I may have bought one of these too!!



  1. Those stars look stunning on the green. And an addition of a skinny gold inset border would really make it look sumptuous and rich. So glad you are going to retreat next year. Maybe this time we will actually get a conversation together! Jxo

  2. I bought my Retreat ticket too. Wheeeee! Love these blocks, it's never too early to think Christmas.

  3. The runner/wall hanging will be wonderful, I love those Christmas stars! And I bought a ticket too, I am looking forward to seeing you again.

  4. Lucky you! Have a great time : )

  5. Your Christmas roses look beautiful against the green. You are super organised. So glad you ave a ticket for the FQR. Di x

  6. Have a great time at the retreat Catherine! Your Christmas hanging is going to be lovely.

  7. Those blocks look fab against that green and the pop of gold is going to really make it lovely and luxe - can't wait to see it finished!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
