Project still a UFO.

I wanted to make a table runner that was featured in an old Country Threads magazine, but not using their designs.  Instead I looked for Nativity patterns, but couldn't find any stitching patterns anywhere, so I traced four designs from a Christmas craft book and stitched them.  I've got one lot of fabric to make up the runner, but need another for the border, and naturally I don't have the right one in my stash! So I'll be shopping around tomorrow to see if I can find what I need.

Catch up

Sometimes life gets busy and posts get pushed aside till "tomorrow".  Finally here is my June "tomorrow" post.
This is the first finish from the mini kit, "Christmas Maidens 1" from Petals and Patches, which I bought on the Quilters Trail last month.  I have more stitcheries completed and ready to make up. 

I was finally able to find the thread (YAY) I needed to finish off my May stitchery.  The next stitcheries are under way, and I am sourcing fabrics to make up the quilt.This is a Gail Pan design - "Busy Little Christmas Elves".
