A little bit of Sunday stitching

This afternoon I have Sunday dinner with my family but I have a few hours to do a little bit of stitching.
This little pack of fat quarters has been calling out to me for ages (a Christmas present which has patiently sat on my shelves).

Now, all I need is for this monkey to get off my cutting mat and I can get started :)

Valentine's sewing

I recently bought a book on iris quilting and in the spirit of valentine's day thought sewing a heart for my study wall would be appropriate.

I love it and now just have to stitch it onto some backing fabric and quilt.

Birthday treats!

Do breakfasts get any more wonderful?
I am being treated like a princess with gorgeous flowers and my very special present-an iPad mini. Then off to London sightseeing for the day.
Hope you are all enjoying Valentine's day as much as me :)

Loving zips

I was always really scared of working with zips but now I can freely admit-I LOVE them!!!!
Once I put the right attachment on my sewing machine I was whizzing away.
I signed up to take part in the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery's monthly Woodland Sampler and I am loving it but I needed a bag to put it in each month while I was waiting for the next pattern to be released. I love block of the month and so this is fantastic for keeping everything safe and sound.

I pulled some fabric out of my stash and an hour later have a small padded bag which fits my embroidery hoop. I added a small pocket to the back of the bag so that I can put my ends which should stop the floss bunnies all over the house.
