Bits and Pieces

 I enjoyed making my other scrappy trip around the world quilt so much I decided to make another, this time with a christmas theme. I have been making blocks all week and I have nine to go.
 I love how its looking so far. I have kept it fairly scrappy by adding a few of  my favourite prints that aren't a christmas fabric but the colour is perfect. I can't wait to show you more.
 A few weeks ago I did a little swap with my blogger friend Melanie from The Patchwork robin, I made the tilda needle case I showed you a little while ago and these are the lovely gifts I received.
 Thankyou Melanie I love them all.
 Last week was my friend Wendy's birthday, I made her a needle case and a pin cushion, They were so much fun to make, I love anything with stitchery.
 Just a few nights stitching in front of the tele and they were done. So glad you like them Wendy.
I joined a pin cushion swap on Instagram and on Friday this little lady arrived at my house, isn't she a beauty. Thankyou Lyn.

Ok, off to do some house work then I can make a few more scrappy christmas blocks, have a great Sunday.

Your scrappy trip is looking great, what a neat idea for a Christmas quilt. I love your swap gifts you received from Melanie and the stitchery gifts for Wendy are gorgeous too! Shame about housework interfering with a great sewing day :-)
