April ~ 1 Block and a Gift

My goodness you girls are quick off the mark this month ... I see lots of busy, happy Elves with gorgeous projects.

I've managed to finish my first block of  'A Merry Christmas Garden' ...


a lot of work but I'm happy with my attempt at needle turn applique.

Two days before our local show I decided I needed to enter a pincushion so out came the 2.5" squares ...


pretty chuffed that it got a 2nd place and now it's going into the Xmas gift stash.

Happy Christmas sewing to all xx
