Cute things.

Just a quick post to share what I have been up to recently.
The stitchery is a CrabApple design, Trimming The Tree, and will become a cushion.
 I enjoyed doing this; it is so sweet!
The baubles are felt circles covered with the DMC thread.
 Our Round-Robin group is making a quilt for charity; We are each making a block from the Mother Goose Nursery quilt.  Here is my block - it still needs some sashing and stars but is nearly done.
More eyes done with the eyelet stitch on my machine (see here) - the pattern recommended using buttons for the eyes but I decided not to use those for a child's quilt.
Hope everyone's weekend went well - and you managed to squeeze a bit of stitching in somewhere,

Oh my - I love them both! I'm very partial to CrabApple patterns. I have quite a pile that haven't been stitched yet.

Hallo Raewyn, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog!
Wat a cute design, those snowmen trimming the tree, I lOVE it. I don't know CrabApple design, I will serve the internet for them. The nursery block is very sweet, a wonderful project from your Round Robin group!
The eyelets and baubles are real nice!
Happy quilting, Cisca
