How is your week going?

Are you having a good week? We still have snow around us and it is not very warm. But it is great weather for stitching. Look what the mailman brought me this week. A lovely pincushion and pins sent to me by my friend Vicki - I guessed correct in a competition she ran on her blog and this was my prize. I will treasure it Vic.

So with the weather so cold I have been stitching each evening - I have 2 more blocks finished for my Simle Pleasures quilt. That makes 6 and I am working on No 7. Just 5 more to go.


I have also been working on a new design in some fun bright colours using that little silver item there - I wonder what it is? Do you want to guess? I will send the first person who can guess correctly something special in the mail.


I have also been playing with some hexies for another new project. Don't forget that tomorrow is the day that Block 2 is released and the Giveaway is drawn.

Darling pincushion and love the stitchery. Time to snuggle in for the winter and stitch, stitch, stitch. Can you imagine how unhappy we would be if we couldn't use our hands??

Lovely sneek peaks Fee...I have no idea what you are going to make with that little silver thing. Its very intriguing. I love the fabrics you have used and are going to use...so pretty. Hugs Vicki xoxox

Hi Fiona
Is that silver thing a block viewer? Or a 'minifier' (like a magnifier but opposite) that makes everyhing look small?

Wendy said...

Are you going to use it as a stamp?? I don't think so! Your stitcheries, as ever, are beautiful and I love that fabric you've used in your hexies - what is it?

Lots of loveliness to look at - I love the prettiness I see....
I have no idea at all what the little silver goodie watchit is.... but whatever you make will be lovely and I am looking forward to seeing it - beautiful fabrics

Hi Fee
I think it's a wigwam for a goose's bridle or maybe a
watch-a-ma-call-it.
Whatever I'd love to win. Hope you are keeping warm. Sharyn

What a lovely pincushion! How sweet. Your stitching looks great, and I love the look of your new design - hm - cell phone carrier?

My first thought on that silver thing was a die of somekind to cut circles from paper and maybe emboss at the same time? Or a wax seal? Love your work what ever you do...

Barb said...

That silver thing looks like a spring clip magnet I have on my fridge. So maybe a fabric notepad holder to hang on the fridge.

Lline said...

Is the sliver thing a magnetic closure of some kind. Thank you for sharing your designs with the world.

Lina said...

I think Barb beat me to it. I have a spring clip magnet on my frig that looks just like it. That pincushion is just lovely.
