My First Quilt & An Exhibition

It occured to me the other day that I never did share with you my finished first ever quilt. This was a sampler quilt that I did at an evening class at a LNS at the beginning of this year. Some of the stitching is not the best but I'm really proud of this quilt. It's for my baby boy.

The other thing about this quilt is that i'm going to be entering it into an exhibition :-) It'll be the first time I've entered anything into an exhibition so I'm quite excited. I have two entries, the other one is the christmas table runner in the post below this one. Just in case anyone happens to be in the area... details of the exhibition are as follows.

Maybe I'll see you there.

Happy Stitching :-)

Christmas Stitching

Not quite cross stitching, although I have been making (very slow) progress on my christmas SAL, but a quilted table runner. I love it. It was quite time consuming to piece so doubtful I'll be making another one but I really like it. Hopefully it'll fetch a nice price at the Christmas & Craft Fair I'm doing in November.

Happy Stitching :-)

Lisa G Creations

This evening I've put a new picture on my blog... top right... over here ------------>

It's my logo for my new little venure. Lisa G Creations.

I know there isn't much there to look at right now but I assure you i'll be adding to it when possible with my new little makes & not so little makes.

Today I worked on finishing off my first Christmas Table Runner & alas I'm currently unpicking the binding. I'm slightly gutted, i'd gone around 3 sides of the runner before realising that i'd cut my binding too narrow. I could kick myself, it would have been complete by now.

Never mind, it could have been worse... I could have been alive 70 years ago.

Happy Stitching all
