Stars and stitching..


This week I have caught up with the stars for the star quilt along. I am feeling so pleased with myself, but have't started on the sashing blocks yet, maybe on the weekend. I am planning on doing them scrappy rather than the one colour, so that I can incorporate a few more fabrics and colours in the quilt. Using white frightens me a bit!

And here is a pic from the latest stitchery from the Sunshine in your Pocket book by Bronwyn Hayes. It's so nice stitching away at these now it's getting so cold and dark. x Rachel

Your blocks and your embroidery are beautiful. I have seen several quilts lately that I loved, with soft colors and white backgrounds. They were all stunning. I think you'll love the finished product.

Hello, Rachel! Thank you so much for visiting me today--and for joining in on my gift giveaway. So very nice to meet you, and to find you pretty plave here in blogland! Your quilting is exquisite...your soft approach and heavy on the pastels here is so lovely, and such delicate embroidery. So glad you have found your blog (new to me!) and look forward to coming back again! Happy Days :o)
