Time to stitch

I have been on holiday for the last week back to work tomorrow. Here is what I stitched for the YLPS exchange for April it arrived very quickly within 5 days, i made it into a mattress pincushion.
I have done some more stitching, 4th,5th,6th and 7th Days of The Twelve Days of Christmas(Just Nan) for  the Christmas Challenge 2009  which I set myself, just need to make them up then I will post them on the blog.

I also went to a quilt and embroidery show in Harrogate, there was some beautiful quilts on display and of course I had to add to my stash there was a couple of things I have seen in the recent quilting magazines so I bought the material to make them. Now that September is here I start to think about Christmas and what gifts I can make people so this stash will come in handy.
