A little bit of this....and that

Hi everyone, Sorry for not posting more. I've been having computer troubles. I'm still trying to figure some of the things out. Well, last week I got the first issue of the Quilter's Connection Magasine. This is a new Canadian quilting magazine. I subscribed to it a bit late to get the first issue. So, I bought the first issue from Laurraine at Patchwork Pottery's etsy shop. She is the designer of the pattern on the front cover. She even signed her pattern for me. She is so sweat. I love her pattern.

I also got my Cindy Lou Who Schnibbles pattern. I bought it from a shop that was a bit closer to where I live so that the post wouldn't take so long. It helped!!! I started cutting the pieces last night. I'm not using a charm pack for this. I'm just using material I have in my stash. It's going to be a Christmas table topper and I hope to use it as a gift.

My daughter's also been doing a little bit of hand stitching. She wanted me to put her work on my blog too. She embroidered  a cute little bird. So cute!!!

Well, I hope you all have a great day. I have to work this evening. I couldn't sleep last night so I'm really tired this morning. I may have to go lay down a bit before work. Otherwise it will be a long night.

Hugs Ariane
