Block 8 of Le Jardin, Block E of Gardener's Journal

Just finished Block 8 of Le Jardin.  Here it is:  I have started Block 9 and soon will be able to show you the entire quilt.

and Block E of Gardener's Journal - I am so excited this quilt is almost done, but will be sad for the Stitch-A-Long to be over. Although I just saw a post of maybe continuing with something else, which makes me very happy!!!

A Gardener's Journal, A Kitten's Tale, Le Jardin and Secret Santa

So I have finished another block of A Gardener's Journal.  This is Block B - two more to go.  I have some of the quilt top put together.  It is going to be beautiful.

Here is my first block of A Kitten's Tale.  It is so cute.  I ordered the pattern from Pastimes On Line.  It is in Chestermere, Alberta Canada and Val is fantastic.  She runs a private blog for people who are making the quilt/doing the block of the month/or just a pattern of the month and it is awesome.  I am starting a new quilt with her in January - Life is Beautiful.  I can't wait.  You will see the tag on the right of my blog.

Block 8 of Le Jardin is almost finished.  I hope to post it soon.

I have been involved in a secret gift exchange also.  Here are pictures of my wapped gifts.  I wrapped them in fabric and shipped them off to Australia. 

but I cannot show you the finished items until my secret santa partner has opened everything.  How exciting.  I wrapped them both in fabic.  I can't wait to get my presents!

I will post the pictures of what I made and what I receive as soon as I can (which will probably be Christmas).

Happy Quilting and Stitching!!!

Le Jardin, Gardener's Journal, Christmas Ornament

I just came back from a retreat this weekend.  How amazing to be able to sew and eat for three days.

I just finished Le Jardin block 7 which is the on on the bottom.  On the top are two other blocks from le Jardin which I have just joined.  I just started Block 8 and only one more to go YIPPEE!  It is such a beautiful quilt.  I had lots of compliments on it on the weekend at my retreat.

My dog, Molly, loves this quilt also!  She is so cute!

Oh and Block F of A Gardener's Journal is finished.  What a pretty quilt and such fun embroidery.  I love the embroidery.  This has been such a fun stitch a long with Chookyblue just a couple more blocks to go and then put together and quilted.

Here is something else I just finished - a cute embroidered ornament.  I have had so many compliments on this ornament.  I just have to add a hanger.

More later,
