A finish...woo hoo!!

I have been sewing away this afternoon and managed to get the Snowball and Nine Patch quilt finished. (Well the quilt top!!)  This was started back at a class at the Guild on Sunday April 10th 2016!! Hey I might get it finished in a year if I am lucky!!
I am very happy as this has been made entirely from my stash, no new fabric was bought. Next job is to plan the quilting.

I have been working away on the Christmas stitchery bit by bit,

I am all over the place, doing a bit here and a bit there, but I am enjoying it. Hopefully a good press later on will straighten it up.
I have been enjoying sewing with the rain beating down on the roof!! Such a great sound.
Off to write a letter now.
Happy sewing.

Another great soon- to- be finish. I seem to be so behind finishing things. Your stitchery is coming along. Love the sound of rain on my roof too.
