The other day I went to my sewing room to start to declutter and finish some UFOs.I decided to make a small runner with the few blocks I had made out of the Dutch Treat book which I started a long time ago but never went any further with them. So I started joining the 4 1/2" blocks together with a quarter inch sashing strip between the blocks. 3 across by 6 down making a total of 18 blocks. BUT when I saw them joined up in the strips I fell in love with them again and have now decided to make another 18 and see how I feel about them, keep going or stop.

Winter Village by Laundry Basket Quilts.
We had our first sit and stitch for 2018 on Thursday. Dawn, Anna ,Sue and myself were so excited as we are starting a new project. We spent the day sorting our fabric packs and marking which fabric was for which house,roof,window etc. That took us most of the day then we sat back enjoyed fresh fruit platter and chattered about the project and various other subjects.
The story so far..
Sue popped by with a lovely surprise for me Natalie Bird's book "Cottage -Style Charm".
Thank you so much Sue I love the book.

A relaxing day with some light stitching projects. I have wanted to make a fabric origami candle mat for some time. I found Babs free lessons ,found some modern fabric and ended up with this candle mat and a table topper. All that is missing is some tinsel for the candle. A couple of presents for under the Christmas tree.
Thanks you Babs from http://www.fieryphoenix.co.uk/index.php/tutorials/sewing-projects/144-valentine-fabric-origami-candle-mat?showall=1&limitstart=
For the free pattern and easy to follow instructions.

Saturday, November 18, 2017
This week found me working on Round the Garden whenever I had a chance to stitch. I have now finished all the houses and felt trees in the final outer circle so I started working on the embroidered trees Friday afternoon then continued Saturday. I can now safely say I am on the home stretch...whew.....almost there.
The last couple of photos turned out darker not sure why :(
