Stitching Frenzy!!!

I have been stitching like mad to try and catch up on my Gardeners Journal...I don't usually sit down and sew of a daytime, but I had to , to be able to get all the stitching done for the house...so much stitching in it!!! I have changed my colours in the house to match 'our house' too! I only have a few flowers left to go on the house, and then I'm going to start on the next block, and challenge myself to get them both finished before the end of the month!!! Who needs sleep anyway!!!lol!

A couple more books....'A Fresh Look at Seasonal Quilts'
And 'Pretty Little Pincushions'...you can click on the collages to get a better look! I have only picked out a few favourites from each book.

I also made some Dark Chocolate mud cup cakes Sunday (needed a sewing break)...I found the recipe on Thimbelinas blog. And they are just sooo yummy!!!! I went to the supermarket to buy the ingredients, and discovered they had the book W/Weekly Cupcakes by colour...caramel mud cakes and carrot cakes were just too much of a temptation! But is is really a lovely book! I also purchased a couple more recipe (easy) books...sometimes I get a bit sick of cooking the same old thing!

Enjoy your week

I love that little mouse pincushion. I think I would jump a mile if a mouse ran past me but I love them in the non live sense. I have a few of the china versions. I have to challenge myself to get back into stitching Tailfeathers as I abandoned it at block 4.

Well done on the stitchery, there is a lot of work on that house! Love the new books and the pincushion with the bird on it is gorgeous.

Your stitcheries are adorable. They will look great in the quilt. What a library of inspiration you have also.
