A forced retreat

With so many people coming and going from the house things have to be simple.  Those simple embroideries are great for stitching whilst you are sitting chatting, so three more finished.

One member of my Patchwork gave me a machine embroidered piece as a Xmas present.  I wasn't sure just what to do with it.  Then my grand daughters said they thought it would make a nice wall hanging.  I have added boarders and now it is all pinned up ready for quilting.

And one of the things I didn't put into the clean up, (which has now been delivered to the Salvos) is these small panels from France.  Another gift from a travelling friend.  They are about to be made into place mats.

And I made a new 'skirt and binding' for the piece I have in my hoop,  this means I can fit smaller pieces of linen in the hoop.  I have the next Cross Stitch ready to go.

Although, all this may have to wait until everyone goes home.  Even then I might need a couple of days just to catch up on sleep!!

Instead of a skirt, I add strips of fabric to smaller projects so they can be stretched in a hoop. I have to consider making a skirt!

I can adjust the size of this one and it looks quite nice sitting on the desk.

The girls know just what they like, don't they!
