Last night saw me stitching up a few more squares for my gelato blanket which has been sadly neglected with all my secret sewing I've been working on lately....Just had a quick look and I haven't done a thing with this blanket since July tsk, tsk, tsk......Must get a hustle on!
I also did a few more rows on this, I've nearly finished the last ball and will have my first finish for November hopefully by the end of this weekend wooo hooo....
This is the gorgeous block that Leanne sent to me in the "Let's Celebrate" swap we're in, my favourite colour combination of red and white :) Leanne also sent me the leftover red to use to finish the block of with as well as some beautiful Christmas ribbons. Thanks Leanne I love it all!!
Remember I showed you a sneaky peak with a prettily wrapped pink parcel well these two blocks were hiding in it as well as some fabric etc... but I forgot to take a photo of them all together, maybe Leanne will on her blog, at http://lizzie-the-quilter.blogspot.com/ like Leanne I also sent her the remainder of the fabric I used in constructing her blocks and used it to wrap her blocks up with it with the same thinking that she could use it to finish her blocks of with it. Leanne's got back to me to say she loves her blocks so a big PHEW! here and wiping sweat of my brow lol......now onto the next section of our swap :)
Friday night found me finishing off the last of these stitcheries in preparation for my Christmas giving, wish me luck I now have 16 .......... to cut out and sew up before Christmas, so my Friday was a very productive one for me :)
