A Little Winter Gift For You

Good Morning everyone. Last night I had a lovely evening stitching (and chatting) with some very nice friends...oh and some devine chocolate slice which I am sure my hips will continue to thank Diane for.
Spending time with great friends always serves as a reminder to me at just how blessed I am to have so many loving people in my life. Sharing is so much a part of friendship so I have a little stitchery drawing from my sketchpad to share with all my friends out there. A cute little Frosty called "Winter Mate" is on my sidebar.
I hope you enjoy this little fellow and can find a way to use him....
Remember this quilt "Portabello Friends"
Well I made a little "oops!" in the quilting and had put it away. I have now realised it actually looks ok and have settled in to a bit of hand quilting.
I just love rows of little stitches.....
I will never be a quilter of teeny tiny stitches but I will always love it.
Enjoy the rest of your day,
Blessings Michelle xxx

  3. Your quilting looks beautiful, and tiny enough stitches for me. As long as they're even it doesn't matter how long they are.

  4. What a pretty quilt! Remember the ten foot rule.......if you can't see a mistake from ten feet away, it doesn't exist.

  9. Gee I always allow 3 foot as my rule of what is okay and what isn't ... maybe my eyesight is worse than Jennifer's! Your quilting always looks good.
