Vignette and Scandinavian Christmas Progress

I have been busy on two projects this week.  Firstly .....

Vignette in Stitches Mystery Quilt

I only started this one last week and it has consumed a LOT of my free time but I am so pleased with how it is turning out and all falling into place.  And it brightens up my creative space and even if I do say so myself, I think it looks great on my new design wall!!! lol

Block One

Block Two and Three

Block Four
I was hoping to get these 4 and the next two blocks (5 and 9) pieced before the next magazine comes out next week but I think that is a little ambitious so I will just concentrate on getting these 4 pieced and ready for stitching.

Scandinavian Christmas ... Block 4 Now looks like this :o)

Then Block 5 arrived ... the final block. So I stitched 1 through 4 together and started working on my version of the border.

The material that came in  the kit for the stitchery backgrounds was a really dens linen that was almost impossible to see through (even with my light box) to trace all the details and especially those Cross Stitches and I think that because of this I found it really hard to get the snowflakes to look any good so I am still undecided what to put on them but I do have a couple of wooden buttons in transit to see if that might work.

I have to go out in the next few days and get more "Supplies" so that I can finish tracing out the hearts and getting ready to iron them on but this is what I have so far ....

My poor Farmer must be feeling a little neglected as I have not done any blocks yet this week so hopefully once Miss L goes down for her afternoon nap I can get two made this afternoon.

Happy Stitching,


  1. Oh Sharon! Your blocks are wonderful.

  2. Sharon you have made an amazing start on the Vignette quilt, it looks beautiful. And I love your Scandinavian quilt.
