Sunday stitching.

 Last week was my dear friend Tracee's birthday so I made her a special gift. If you read Tracee's blog you will know her beloved cat Brutus passed away. Tracee loves cats so much I knew I had to make her something with cats on. I found these free stitchery patterns over at Red brolly blog.
 They were perfect for what I had in mind, I made a needle case and pin cushion.
 I was thrilled with the end result and so was Tracee, they were so much fun to make I want to do more.
 I also made a mug rug for the Let's Celebrate swap with Barb.
And this morning I whipped up my first block in the Fat quarters new BOM. I love these fig tree fabrics.
Now I'm going to make sausage rolls for lunch and do some more stitching.

Enjoy your Sunday.

oh poor Tracee but what a beautiful gift from you...The mug rug is cute too. Btw, just saw the photos of your sausage rolls and cookies on Instagram. I've never made sausage rolls but think my kids would love them ( they have had them occasionally at parties). Do you have a good recipe you would care to share? I know I could google but nothing like tried and tested. sorry.
