Two more blocks done....!

I can see Santa arriving to town soon....!

Lots to show and tell here.

I've been keeping my hands busy. You know the maxim "idleness is the root of mischief".

Yea, you can say I've stayed out of trouble ... amongst other places! ;o)

Four more blocks to go and Santa's coming will soon be ready to be pieced into a top.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Santa's Coming to Town.... well not yet anyway!

I'm still here! I did manage to finally piece the center of the General's Wives quilt .... only because I needed my design wall for another quilt.

Multi tasking as usual, so what else is new? lol

As you know, I have been doing a lot of hand embroidering. I am in need of a mindless project, something that soothes the mind and is not demanding.

Why you might ask? Well, do I have news for you!  I am now the sole owner of Fibre Junction. Yes, you read right. Jennifer needed to move in another direction and asked if I would take over her share. It's all very exciting for me and my mind is overly busy with lots of new ideas!  ;o)

Guess what? Yep, Another block done!

I decided for this block to embroider the names of people I knew, as opposed to what the designer wrote. It makes the quilt a bit more personal! ;o)

Oh.....Yep, mindless.....

I must admit, stitching writing is my least favourite! There's just something about it that I haven't figured out! All I can say... it's done... no more for that quilt!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I know that I've been a solitary blogger as of late; mainly due to my need to retreat and regroup. Thank you for your understanding!

More Santa's Comin' to Town.....

Still plugging away at these blocks. Soothing.......!

I'm using this project to test Cosmos floss and I do like it. The colours are rich.

For those inquiring mind, it's colour number 245.

As much as I like the richness of the colours, am I ready to toss my gazillion DMC coloured floss for Cosmos? Not really ... but it is nice!

I do have a couple of other projects that I will be using Cosmos! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by!
