Stitching Morning and Finish

Hello again! Can you believe another week has flown by?
Here we are the weekend again.
I had a lovely start to my weekend with a stitching  morning with my good friend Shazy of Country Prims blog.
Dear friend that she is, I received a wonderful surprise from her:
Primitive quilts magazine and chocolates - which are all gone!!!!
and this fab pattern from Threads that Bind which Shazy made in to a kit for me!
How generous was that!
After seeing Cucki's lovely finish of Beth Twist's SAL I made us up a little kit to work on while we chatted and caught up on all the news!
 And Whoo Hoo I even managed a Friday finish of one of my Christmas Santas. He's a shelf sitter by Country Friends

And before I go I have one query - does anyone ship Threads That Bind patterns  to the UK  ?

Thanks for taking the time to visit!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi Christine, oh love that Santa, what a wonderful job, Blessings Francine.

  2. Did someone say chocolates? lol! LOVE that Santa shelf sitter! Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine is my favorite... happy stitching on the Threads That Bind pattern... those woolies looks fabulous!

  3. Aww cute...sweet Santa..
    Yummy woollies and chocolates :)
    Enjoy your stitching
    Big hugs x

  4. I just love your new Christmas Santa, you are so very talented!

  5. Lovely Santa Christine. I didn't realise you know Shazy - you must live close by. I'd love to have a sewing buddy - someone who's as nuts as I am about stitching, it makes it so much more fun! Is the primitive Quilts magazine available in this country

  6. What wonderful gifts from Miss Shazy! How sweet that you two got to stitch and catch up together.
    Love your Santa sitter.
    P.S. I know of someone who ships Threads that Bind to just about anywhere~hee hee, but you might have to give me a little time to place an order, lol.

  7. Love the little santa guy Christine. Sorry can't help you with the pattern ?.

    Hope you have a great weekend too.

  8. Adorable Santa Christine and a lovely gift from your friend :O) Deb
