It's a Mystery..

and inside it was the fabric for the some of the stitcheries..some Cottage Garden and Aurifil thread ...

FNWF and a challenge

Well Friday after work I met up with my stitching friends  to see what they are working on and of course to have a cuppa with them.  So later on I spent a little time on these little circles of felt which need to be finished this week , and then they will be added to the little pillows on my tree.

I joined in to the challenge that Clare of Clare's Craftroom organised for August.  These were the 2 photos that Clare emailed to me for inspiration...
 I focused on the basket and the colour.  I like basket blocks and so I made up one block..was going to make more but no time this month.  My little block has ended up as a pincushion which should come in handy..

A little late in posting a finish for August..the little Christmas stitcheries from a few weeks back hanging on the wooden tree that I made at the 'Christmas group' I go to each month.  The empty spaces are for the rest of the ornaments that are still under construction.
..and I've just seen that it is the first Friday tomorrow so time to sign up for Friday Night With Friends over here
