More Sewing!

I've been spending some more time in my sewing room working on my FQS Designer Mystery quilt.
 Block 4.
 Block 5.
 Block 6.
 Block 7.
So I have now caught up and just have to 
wait for Block 8 to come.
Yesterday I had a lovely sit and sew day with some friends. I managed to finish a Christmas stitchery that I had started only a few days before Christmas. It is called Christmas in the Woods and was designed by Gail Pan for Quiltmaker magazine which I was lucky enough to win on her blog late last year. It will go into the drawer until I decide what I am going to do with it.
I even managed to get started on another Christmas stitchery that I've been wanting to do for a while.

Thank you Silvia, Sally and Lois for a lovely day of sewing and chatting (of course, not forgetting the eating part)!

You have been busy. Your blocks look great, and those Christmas stitcheries are so cute. I don't think I can look at Christmas projects for a while.

Love sit & sew days, and your stitchy things are lovely. As are your blocks - are you just using fabric from your stash or is that a range? Really like the colours you've chosen to put together.
Have fun with the next block!
