All has been revealed

I finally had lunch with my friend Kath this week.  We haven'ticaught up with each other for a while so it was really nice.  Especially as I had a special present for her.  I have been making a wall hanging for her as a house warming present for her new house.  It is a bit late, lol, but good things take time.

She was thrilled and I can't wait to see it hanging in her new house.  I used the same pattern as the one I am doing for my granddaughter.  Only the sleeve to hang it and a label and that too will be finished.  My next project is another one that I have done previously.  I have decided to make an animal quilt.  The animals are stitched with embroidery threads with pieces of material patches sewn on them.  I am really enjoying sewing. Thats all for today.  I will post more soon.

Well it has been a while since I posted and this was remarked upon recently.  What have I been busy at?  Well I have been getting into my stitching quite a bit. A group of friends have been getting together for the last three weeks to have a stitch along.  We have all been pleased with our progress. I have nearly finished a wallhanging for my grand daughter.

 It has been in the making for quite a while although not as long as another one that has seen the light of day too. I enjoyed making this wallhanging so much that I decided to do another one.  It is so nice doing some embroidery in with quilting.  I will definitely have to do some more. 

 Another project I have been working on lately is some knitting.  I have got another grandchild due next month, so I thought I had better get some knitting done.  I have had a lot of joy knitting this.  Just have to stitch the edging on it and then it is finished. Then I will have to find something else to work on, lol.

Thanks for stopping by.
