Some finishing, and some stitching

Last Friday three of my stitching buds and myself got together and did some finishing. Chris (no blog) and Jill (Purple Peacock) did the stitching and then Jackie (no blog) and I and the other two girls put all these together. The job went quite fast with all of us working. Many hands make light the work:) Since I have been working we have not gotten together much, so it was a fun time.

I received this BBD Blueberry Crumb Cake fabric on Friday. Can't wait to use this fabric. I have a couple idea's for it. May even order some more!

I was excited to get this Quilt Book by Blackbird Designs since I stitched the model of the sampler in this book. I enjoyed stitching it so much I wanted to stitch one for myself.

So---here is the start of my sampler. I can't wait to get this done and framed.

Yesterday I received these new Blackbird Design books and got busy stitching. I stitched up the small Gift Box design. I had the round box and got it painted up today. I also can't wait to stitch the Christmas Garden Sampler. Actually I am excited to stitch all the designs.

Here is the inside of the box.

And this is a view of the side of the box. It has a cute little raised design. This was a very fun and quick stitch.

Well there is another quick update. Now that I am done with my seasonal job I plan on spending a lot of time stitching. I am also hoping to post a little more often but no promises.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

Happy Stitching!!

All your other stitching does too :)

I love all those little Joy ornaments! That's a lot of finishing you ladies got done, but I imagine it went pretty fast once you got an assembly line going.

Love the little small box you stitched from the new BBD book. I haven't seen the new quilting book, and didn't realize there was a sampler design in it.

Wow, looks great, Joan. I think I like the round better than the square. I love the sampler you stitched, too, and will add that one to my list of things I want to stitch!
