I have been working on some Christmas goodies which I can't show you because snoopy little Elves may be about and we don't want to spoil any surprises and....
I have also been working away on "My Red Fancies" framed hexies quilt. It features 13 little redwork stitcheries of all the red things that take my 'fancy'. I really love it. I have had this quilt in my head for years and love that it is finally being created. I got it all together and quite quickly as well which surprised me as I thought it would take forever but I then decided it need another row all the way around.
So here I am back on the hexie making trail. Such a hardship... tee hee!
As far as favourite 'red' things go I had to include DD's naughty black poodle Miss Sophie after one of her groomings in her pretty red bows...always loved how she thought she was very special in those red bows.
Speaking of pretty red things I finally succumbed to the new French General range "Josephine" I resisted for as long as I could but ...oh my delicious!! After looking through the charm squares I think there is a little more of it I fancy. I feel all "Appliquey" when I look at it..hmmmm!
One of my next little jobs is to make stockings for my two new Granddaughters so although these are panels I think they are so cute and I am going to embroider their names along the top. They are both such gorgeous little girls I am sure Santa will fill them to the brim for them xxx
As I have been really feeling my age and beyond this week I thought a gentle reminder was in order. So note to self....
