Christmas time is near I think :)

Hi everyone, I hope all are going well and are you having fun with the Christmas sewing from the Among the Gum Tree’s free patterns? Our gorgeous Cheryl has given a beautiful one to us all..I love her delicate stitching.

Seasons's Greetings

There is also a gorgeous Christmas stitchery from Joy for downloading too.

And of course Judith’s gorgeous Christmas Bag is there too.


Remember to upload photos of your completed projects to our Flickr group so we can all share in your handiwork!


I have had an exciting week as I finally got my edition of Simply Patchwork & Stitching which has my design in it. The issue is Vol 10 No. 4.


I was very excited as Renee used my Christmas design on the Welcome page :) *big smiles*

Welcome page for Patchwork & Stitching

and of course a page all by itself. I love how the magazine’s photographers make them look so good. I had fun sewing that as I love sewing hexagonals.

With All The Trimmings


My Stitchers Angel has sent me my gifts from her and I am really spoilt! She sent me lots of goodies and I will put up pictures of them soon. I will email Helen Stubbings and tell her I have received. This has been an exciting swap and I am yet to send mine as I still have a couple of things I want to put in. Mine is going off to Brazil! That’s exciting!


Have fun everyone and don't forget to give hugs to all those you care about and love.

Hugs to all…….Vicki
