Saturday sewing

 Yesterday I started working on a few christmas gifts. I had such a good day in my sewing room, I got all these needle cases finished. They were so much fun to make. I used the Helen Stubbings fabric panel from her range Life is beautiful.

 I also made some mug rugs, these are being sent to my international friends.
 The stitcheries  are from Natalie Bird's book Sweet Sentiments.
 I added a little tag with my name on it just to make them a bit more special.
 They turned out so well. I was really pleased.  The fabrics are very pretty.
 Last weekend at work I also quilted a new finish. This is made from a Bliss jelly roll.
 The colours are perfect for Spring and even Summer. Nice and cheery.
 Its great when you reach this stage as the quilting is nearly to the end. Just need to bind it. I will show you more photos next time.
Just had to share a beautiful rose picked this morning from my garden.

Have a great day and I hope you find some sewing time.
