Moving Right Along...

 I pulled fabrics to make my next Christmas gift project yesterday.
I might just as well call this the "Year of the Plates". It's going to be
another table runner and napkin set with the Dresden plate motif.
 I cut the "ties" (as Handsome calls them) and started sewing the top
seams to prepare for joining them together. Today, I'll make them up
and then start assembling the three plates for the runner. It will be fun 
to see just how far I get on this gift set today. More on that tomorrow.
 When I'm not in the studio, I also like to sit and stitch. I finished this 
"Sweet Stitches" piece called "March Winds" on Tuesday night. 
I was visiting with girlfriends at our Paneras group when I put the
last stitch into the fabric. I bonded the birds to it yesterday morning.
 I can almost feel that brisk March wind. Can't you?
I traced the pattern for my next kit, too. It's called "Sweet Liberty".
Another adorable stitchery to work on when I'm not making gifts.
I love this "joyful and creative life". I'm truly blessed.

Love your March stitchery, reminds me of drawings from an old book. I also have that fabric you're using for the place mats, different color way though. happy stitching.

Lovely stitchery as always and I also love the fabric selection for the runner.
