BOM's Away and Tuesday Stitching

I haven't worked on my Apples of Gold BOM in ages so I decided to get it out and do a little last night. I made a little progress on it.

Maybe if I continue to work on it a little each week it will get finished soon.

Today I had a lovely day stitching with a wonderful friend. I always feel refreshed and uplifted after a day stitching with her I think it's because we have such a wonderful time and lots of laughs!
This is what I worked on today.

Linking up with Lynn's BOM's Away.

Some Slow Stitching Progress

I finally sat down and worked on my cross stitch for a while last night. It wasn't a great deal of progress but every little bit helps get it closer to finished!

Now I'm off to work on a BOM that hasn't been touched for quite a while!

Just finished

This has been waiting to be made for a while. I was given the Studio Mio Elegant Chic Purse pattern at the same time I made the little purse out of the same fabric. It was another quick and easy project. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow.


More Updates

Here is more of what I have been up to lately

The doll I made for a friend


This pattern was called Elegant Expressions I changed the colours it came up nicely.

This is a quilt I made for the day care centre my youngest went to. 
I still need to bind it and put a sleeve on it so that it can be hung up.

Thought I should give you an update since it has been a while. Here are some of the things I have been working on
Diggles the dragon ( I fell in love with him the minute I saw him at the Funky Friends Factory website and I knew I would have to make one)

A Jelly Roll bag


 Moo Moo (aka Daisy) by Melly and Me

Dilby Duck another Funky Friends Factory Pattern I couldn't resist, and a mini quilt I designed myself after being inspired by a key cover my friend had given me as a gift.

A close up of the detail 

A little quilt using Who comes to Zinnia's Garden fabric, it still needs to be quilted and I also have a table runner to make from the same range of fabric yet.

I will add some more tomorrow

It is another of those slow stitching projects!

You should see some of the progress being made over there!
