I am back- updates, PIF and Stitched Finishes....

I have been flat out the last month with loads happening and lots of illnesses in the house too....feeling so exhausted - needing just to cocoon my self away for a bit I think and just sleep.

Here are a few shares of what I have been doing. - only sharing stitching items tonight...will do scrapping update again soon.
Sewing Finishes.....This first one is a quilted runner, from Australian Country threads magazins A Special Stitchery Edition vol 7 no 8. This flowers in flight tablerunner was designed by Natalie Ross. I fell in love with the design when I first saw it...although I was shocked with how big it actually is on completion. It measures almost 1.5m from point to point. I found it very simple to work on, and the ruffle is just so sweet. My sister loved it for her Birthday gift last Thursday.
Next up is a Natalie Bird Table Centrepiece from her book "from the heart", I have been wanting to make this one since I saw it - and now that I have completed it, I will have to make one for myself. I was a little dissapointed with the pattern and found a few of the pieces needed to be modified...but that happens with some patterns. It is the first Dresden Plate pattern that I have tackled and I love how the wedges just fit together...and the stitchery is just so sweet. I will sit perfectly on my Mum's table. Now to decide what colours I will do it in for me.
Pay It forwards from back in August last year are drawing near..I am patiently waiting for a surprise gift from Laila..I have two ladies waiting on my gifts so they are my next to do project, and anyone who else wants to join in and can join both Anna and Grandmarockton....
