Lots of pictures!

... and I know from reading answers to the Bloggers Question of the Week that you ALL like pictures ;)

Firstly - here are the Take Time to Quilt pieces finished into boxes - the Spring one is a bit blurry sorry, but maybe just as well - it was the first one I did and I learnt a few tricks while I was doing it, which made the second one much nicer looking!

Then we have a wee ornament, this is from an Ornament RR - I won't say what one in case the next person wants to be surprised. It is from JCS Ornament Magazine '98, by Victoria Sampler - I can't say it was a favourite, but I made myself stitch it :)

... and next the piece I'm going to make into a needlebook for my evil MIL, can you believe (okay, if you know me you probably can, all too easily! LOL) that I finished it, took it out of the Q-snaps and realised I stitched it on the left hand side, instead of the right ... major DUH! ... I'll cut the extra fabric off the right-hand side and sew it to where it should be - it will just mean there is a seam on the outside of the needlecase, I don't think that will matter. I'm hoping to make it up this afternoon.

and last, but definitely not least, an update on my Celtic Summer - I stitched some on the border on Saturday night, and then some more of the dress last night, I had real trouble keeping my eyes open last night so didn't get as much done as I would have liked - I hate it when that happens. I notice a few updated pictures of the Celtic Ladies ... we must have all finished our Christmas ornaments and obligations :) I'm going to have to put mine away again while I get this Mirabilia RR ready to go, hopefully that won't take to long and I can get CS out again, very soon.

Anyway - here she is -

How do you get so much done with 5 kids to run around after? All of your stitching is beautiful and you have done such a professional job in finishing the Take Time To Quilt boxes. Thanks for sharing.

Great piccies!! I have to say I do love to see everyones progress piccies - either WIP's or finished pieces :) Your boxes turned out beautifully - and your Lorri Birmingham piece will look lovely as a needlecase :))

What awesome pictures of your lovely gifts Lisa. I'm sure the recipients are going to love them (if they don't then I'll take any of them off their hands!). Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas in sunny NZ.
