Friday stitching

Yesterday I added the final stitches to my 
Sew Laugh Love

and with a quick iron :o)

Since this photo I have attached the borders and sewn on the buttons
but I will save that for the final reveal :o)

Just need to go and buy a canvas and a staple gun to get this one over the line.

Have you seen Gail Pan's new book "Simply Christmas"
Mine has arrived and I love it. Love it so much that I started
my first project from it last night.

and here is how far I got.
The first of four started. 

I think he is supper cute :o)

Today I am off to my LQS for my next Glacier Star Class.

This could be dangerous.  
Nicky has just got in 24 bolts of Liberty fabrics 
........  I will try to resist.
Also, the last time I did this class I came home to work on my blocks
and chopped the end of my finger off with my rotary cutter.
It looks fine now but still a little numb.

Have a great weekend,
hugs Sharon

  3. It has come up beautifully and cant wait to see its finally finish. The new book looks like fun and I agree it is a very cute looking elf! Have a great time at your class today.

  4. I love that stitch dry, it will look great on a canvas. I can't bring myself to start a Christmas project yet, but Gail's book is tempting. Have fun at your class (looking forward to seeing your Liberty purchases).

  5. Your "Sew Laugh Love" Stitchery will be a fabulous piece of art when completed.. You should be very proud of it..

  11. Your stitchery looks amazing and as for what you did last night, well impressive to say the least. I'm off to check out the new book, might have to buy one.

  12. Your stitchery is going to look fantastic on canvas. I haven't seen Gail's book yet but going by that cute little guy, I'm sure it will have lots of lovely projects.

  13. Your stitchery of little squares looks so nice. I like your new book. Take care cutting. Touch wood, I won't ever cut myself with the rotary cutter. It makes me shudder to think of it.

  14. Love our new stitchery very cute, will have to check out Gail's new book.

  15. I cannot believe how quickly you have done this stitchery, I have just made a start on mine, mine will take a long time to complete.

  21. Love your stitchery, you were very quick whipping it up, can't wait to see it all finished on canvas. I also couldn't resist Gail's new book but I haven't started anything from it yet. Good luck with resisting the liberty prints and take care when using your rotary cutter! :) Barb.
