I have had a busy couple of weeks which have kept me out of my sewing room, but I have managed to keep some handwork with me for those spare moments.

These are some stitcheries from Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse.

Sunburnt Quilts - Stitchery

It is from a little booklet called All Creatures Great and Small.

I am not sure yet if I will make these into a quilt or a wall hanging. There is plenty of time to make up my mind as I stitch 10 more.


I am also stitching away on these little snowmen blocks.

This a quilt pattern from Fig’N’Berry Creations called The Snowmen Are Gathering.


I am testing my limited crochet skills by making a ripple blanket. I decided the only way to improve my skills was to work on projects that pushed me a bit.  I must admit that it has been lovely to have this blanket sitting on my lap in this cold weather.

I am also sewing down the binding on a lap quilt. Hopefully I can post that one soon.

Hope your week is going well.

Cheers, Karen
