A Few Finishes

 Last month a friend, Jacqui, lead the group at Chertsey Museum, and taught us how to do Padded and Raised work,  She used the theme of a rock pool, and gave us a number of examples.

I've finally finished mine

I have also finished stitching on the binding for a Batik Square Dance that has been in the PHD pile for far too long.

To keep me on track I have written a list of projects to be finished before Christmas: at least the Square Dance can be my first tick!

  • Christmas Waistcoat
  • I-Spy for Dina
  • I-Spy for Liz
  • I-Spy for Jane (Chloe)
  • Christmas sack for Chloe
  • Christmas sack for Richard
  • 12 place mats for Carol
  • 2 Pairs of Patchwork boots
  • Warm Stars quilt for Philippa
  • Christmas Tree by Candlelight wall hanging
  • Napkins for Anna
  • Batik Square Dance  18th November)

  3. Love your rock! didn't realize it was embroidery...I have so much to learn! LOL! Your to-do list has me quaking in my boots!

  4. Well done Benta. Love the embroidery and I can see that you will soon cross a lot off your list . Love .

    And a sack for Will please if you have time!

  6. Congrats on the finishes, and good luck with that list ;o)

  7. I love your rock but am dismayed by your list - are you aiming for this Christmas or one sometime in the next few years? Good luck.
