WOYWW - Still Stitching !

Well nothing very new to report this week as the Scandi Stitching is still taking up all my crafting time !

So my work desk this week is still in my Quilting cupboard !

And my normal work-desk is sulking quietly because I am neglecting it & haven't even sat at it in a couple of weeks !

 The blocks around the edge of my Quilt Topper took me rather longer than I had thought they would !
But it gave me a sense of achievement to get the blocks finished & stitched together !

Just the final border to add & then I can layer, quilt and add the binding !

And to give myself a break in block piecing, I got the other 23 advent stockings finished too !

Just when you thought you had had enough of red, white & taupe I have to warn you that I still have a wall hanging in the same fabrics which I haven't even started yet !
And yes, I am dreaming in Scandi colours !!

Have a great crafty week

  3. Hello Ali. What a beautiful quilt. Well done. I certainly wouldn't have the patience for anything like that! Those little stockings are SO cute - enjoy using the advent calendar when December comes. And a wall hanging to come....
    Take care. God bless.

  8. It all looks gorgeous and once it's made you can use it again and again so the effort is worth it. Hope you have a great week and happy woyww, Angela x 14.

  9. Well, I love the Scandi colour scheme. I bought some fabric just last week to make new "grown up" stockings for my children. Your mini ones are very cute :-)
