Once Upon a Stitchery

Below are six of the twelve stitcheries that form a quilt called Once Upon a Stitchery which I am making for my granddaughter Thian who is 10 months old.
I have had soooo much trouble getting these photos to stay right way up!! 
I apologise that they have come out sideways - I gave up!! 
Any tips on correcting would be appreciated :(

Here is our little her to the moon and back!

Below....the six completed blocks

Jack & the Beanstalk

The Princess and the Pea

The Three Little Pigs

Little Red Riding Hood


The Gingerbread Man

I have loved creating these stitcheries and can't wait to finish and put the whole quilt together.

I am working on block ten at the moment.....

I won't be back until after Easter so I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and if you are travelling please stay safe.

We are having a family wedding on Saturday....our niece who was flower girl at our wedding is all grown up and getting married!!

Take care and happy stitching

First Post - New Blog

Hello Out There......
Welcome to my new blog!

I seem to have been busy for a few years....
 life got in the way and lost my way with blogging. 
But here I am again to give it another go.
It's very basic as I am a bit technically challenged 
but I will probably pick things up as I go!

I have been busy stitching this year and have accomplished a few little things.
Below is the table runner and matching mug rugs
I have made for the family room and rumpus room.
Two of the mug rugs are extra wide to cover the arms of the sofa.

I am working on two more table runners for the sideboards and
a couple of cushion covers.
That should complete the little make-over 
for these much loved rooms :)

Thank you for stopping by
Take care
