Sewing, stuffing, stitching...

There has finally been some action in the sewing room. First up my Annie all ready for decorating for Aunt Pitty Pats Bumps in the Night Annie swap - I know just a little organised, swap partners are to be assigned this weekend, she's all ready for the fun part. The pattern was generously supplied by Brenda Greenwalt of Lillie Mae's Crafts and came together quickly. Thanks Brenda. Now that Gail Pan has completed her free Christmas block of the month and some examples have started to pop up in cyberspace, I decided that I might make a start, so here is my country version of the Believe block - I like these colours together and whilst they are all DMC they did not have identifying information with them so a trip to the shop with a piece of each will be required if I am to complete all the blocks using this colour scheme. The background fabric is batik in soft green.
Another free pattern generously supplied by Paula over at Sew little fabric, I like anything bear and just could not pass up the opportunity to work this super cute design. Yes, the same country colours as the Believe block above, it is destined to become a journal cover for a friend. Paula has other free designs so you might like to stop by and say hello sometime.
Hope your weekend is a creative one.
Happy Crafting
