Emeralds and rubies…

I visited some more gardens on Sunday but I forgot to put the SD card in the camera… duh! So that’s it for the garden festival photo’s… until next year…

I have had a very creative weekend… I played with lots of pretty things… creating this months challenge project… and I am so happy with the way it’s turned out… :O) Here’s a sneak peek…

I also finished the binding on this dolls quilt from Kathleen Tracy’s book ‘The Civil War Sewing Circle’…

It reminds of of sparkling jewels… emeralds and rubies…

I am in the process of sewing the binding down on a baby quilt… and I am working on finishing a wee runner for Christmas, I was about to sew it together when I noticed I hadn’t quite finished the stitchery… Lol But it is almost done :O) I seem to be on a finishing spree… it will be so good to be able to tick these off the list!

Happy stitching…

Michelle
