Good Morning and I have to say it is a glorious one here in my part of the world. The heat has subsided and it is much more civilised. It was 40.7 degrees here on Tuesday...yuk! The nasty little stomach bug I had earlier this week that had me laid low has gone also thankfully, so I too am feeling a bit more civilised. Because of that nasty little critter I haven't posted some lovely stitching by clever friends.
Firstly you may have seen this already on JEANETTE'S blog but it is so pretty I have Jeanette's permission to share it again. Jeanette has stitched my Hexagon table runner featured recently in Country Threads Magazine and her version is just wonderful.
My lovely friend Lorel (no blog) purchased my Mini Christmas Star pattern and has made a few of these little stars and they are oh so cute too. Lorel is the most beautiful and humble stitcher....her work is always gorgeous and these are no exception.
The other thing I thought I would share with you (and if I shared it last year, sorry put it down to a fevered brow but I do love it) is my favourite Christmas quilt. I made it not long after I began quilting. I had bought a bag of remnants from Ruth Stonely's (sadly missed) beautiful patchwork shop at Highgate Hill and I made it from an American quilt magazine and I thought I was very clever. They had pieced candles and I couldn't work that out so I made some templates and appliqued the candles. It is also hand quilted.
I don't know who the designer is or the name of the design I just call it Candles in the Window.
Have you sat on Santa's knee yet and told him your heart's desire??? No! Well why not just leave him a note on your stocking.....
Blessings Michelle xxx
