What I've been up too.....

 I picked up this gorgeous cup and saucer set from "House" it's by Maxwell & Williams and it's name is "Sprinkle"....just love red & white together and dots just tick all the boxes for me MMmmmm
 I finally finished the second elf,now to decide whether to make them into bags or something totally different.....thinking cap on!
I've also been following Bronwyn Hayes blog and decided to take up her offer to use her "Wishes Quilt" patterns she's offering for free on her blog http://www.red-brolly.com/red-brolly/ but with one stipulation.....I can't actually start on any of the blocks till after November when I finish my studies.I'm hoping this keeps me motivated to continue studying hard and not slack off now that the end of two years long and sometimes very hard study are coming to an end this year WOOooo HOOOooo......wish me luck!

I have seen cups and saucers like this here also, and think they are just cute! Am curious about what your stitcheries will be used for :-)

I love that cup and saucer. They have all colours at HOUSE . YOu beat me to it with the Bronwyn Hayes free Christmas stitchery project. I only just got the hanky linen out and the thread to stitch it with. Realised I have run out of the linen too! Grrrr
