As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

A little finish, Hexagon quilt and more

I've yet more followers, a big welcome to you!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

I've a little finish to share. I wanted to stitch a bookmark each for my Bible study group friends. I found a fab chart on Etsy and here is the first one of the 4 that I've done. I'm doing the same design in 4 different colours.

Nancy at the Victorian motto shoppe is having a giveaway to win one of 5 kits she sells. Click here to enter. She has some beautiful kits. I love the Hare one and the Hope one too. There are so many giveaways happening at the moment - McKenna has a great list here , and is doing a weekly round up on a Wednesday of various giveaways happening. A fair few have finished but there are still some to enter...You never know!! I was very lucky to win McKenna's giveaway and I'll share what I won when it arrives (Excited squeal!)

The blackwork sampler is coming on really well and I'm loving stitching it. Not much more progress at the moment, I've jarred my back so it's been a bit uncomfortable to sit for long. I also sat and did a couple of hours on my quilt too as it's a bit easier to move position, so here is the latest pic, still a very looooooooooong way to go though. If anyone would like to be part of the quilt and send any small scraps of fabric, I'd love to make you part of the story. I have fabric from a few friends already and it's lovely to be able to say "that bit is from..." The left column and the bottom row are the latest additions.

Despite being on my stash bust at the moment, I did have a little splurge friday and brought this lot from here. A lot will be used for my giveaway or for makes for the travelling box. It's a great shop for charms and bits and excellent service, I ordered Friday morning and it was here the next day.

Another little purchase was this beautiful brooch from Steph, this is a custom design as I wanted it to go with a couple of outfits - one was the cardi it is pinned to. It's called Star of Wonder.

You can see others here on her blog and in her Folksy Shop .Steph also included a little bag of bits. The beads spell out THANK U. How sweet is that, (although it took me a couple of mins to work out!) I did get something else but it is hubby's valentines present (or part of).

Today is the drawing of my stash busting giveaway so I'll be back later with that. (another excited squeal!)
