What a great stitching week I've had!

It's been a busy week at my place, lots of stitching to show and with hubby away for a weekend I squeezed in as much stitching as I could. Plus it was my rostered day-off today so what else can I do but stitch but it's where I stitched that made it most enjoyable.

So to start with I finished two more Gardener's Journal blocks, only two more to go.
Block E
and Block F.
I'll be having another big week of stitching at nights to finish the remaining two blocks and putting the top together so I can join in the Tis the Season Stitch-a-long on time.

Next I started and came very close to finishing the Bunny Love cushion that Shell sent me, look Shell I nearly finished it!
one more vine to go and then lots of beads to sew on.

And where was I stitching today, where else but Toby's, oh I mean his mumma's place, Fee's!
Isn't he the sweetest little dog, such a cutie.

Better sit down for this Stina I finally finished your bear! it's only taken me 12 months, actually longer, she's going to be headed your way this week. She's a little bit of sunshine from the South Pole going to the North Pole to brighten a cold chilly day

Thank-you for all the lovely messages regarding my Aunty's passing, they're greatly appreciated.

It's Amazing how much stitching gets done when DH goes away...
You've done well...& how cute is Toby!

Your stitching looks terrific. You were really "quick like a bunny" on that cushion. har har har. 8) Toby is adorable. He reminds me of my Mom's dog, Lucy. She's a little Shitzhu - I don't think I'm spelling that just right!

Anyway, everything looks wonderful. You're going to have that Gardener's Journal quilt done before you know it. 8)

Happy quilting,
Susan in Texas
