Catching Up

Many thanks to everyone for their kind comments after my last post - I am all recovered now thank goodness!

I have been busy hand stitching by the fire for the last few days and have a couple of January tasks ticked off my list. First up my RSC block. I am sticking with Dresdens and so another 'light and bright green' block has been added to my pile.

I also now have four more blocks for the next round of my Red Manor House BOM.

Also I thought you would like to see a few of the Christmas presents that I made which I did not blog about before Christmas.

Meanwhile I am busily stitching on my 1797 Revisited quilt - the end is not far away. An update next time.

Happy stitching!


  1. You’ve been busy, busy! I’ve done a scrap fabric pull, but haven’t started any of my RSC blocks, yet. I’m loving those little Christmas gifts that you made. They are beautiful and full of imagination!

  2. You did rather a lot, didn't you!

  3. good to hear you are feeling better and lovely gifts that you made.... those dresdens are lovely and you will have a good collection …

  4. Good to hear you are feeling better, you made some beautiful gifts. Pretty dresden.

  5. Cosying up in front of the fire, enjoying a little stitching does sound rather wonderful. You are working on some lovely blocks and the Christmas gifts you fashioned are pretty. How sweet it would have been to open up the wrapping and see one of those gorgeous pretties inside. Good to hear you are now back to your healthy self.

  6. What lovely gifts! I can't wait to see your 1797 progress.
