More catching up!

Whilst I was away we celebrated my Mother's 90th birthday! This picture shows four generations of our family having
lunch.







This lovely kit came my way over Christmas - I am looking forward to making it up.




Another kit I am looking forward to working on is this scissor fob which I purchased along with the scissors with some of my Christmas money.


Sue Hawkins has such gorgeous kits it's difficult to choose which to buy!

Well now it is time to get down to some New Year sewing. The RSC colour for this month is red and I need to decide on what I am going to make this year. Plus I have a mystery block to complete ready for next week when my little patchwork group meet. Itching to get back to my 1797 hexies too.

Happy stitching everyone.

So the new year stitching is to begin. Love your pretties you have ready to go. Love the Liberty fabric in that kit and what a gorgeous design to stitch. How fabulous four generations of your family were all together to celebrate your mum's 90th birthday.....90 years young! Such a lovely photo of you all...and of your dear mum and dad.

What a beautiful day it was to celebrate your mother's 90th birthday. Makes me happy to hear that 4 generations were able to also attend! Your scissor fob is going to be gorgeous. You'll always remember the money-gift-giver when you use those scissors now -- which I would hope will be often.

Happy birthday to your Mom! She looks like a lovely lady, and best wishes on a healthy year ahead for her. Your stitching kits look like a lot of fun, combining the things that you like with the embroidery, and the sewing.

Happy stitching,
