Bits and Pieces

Over the last couple of nights I put together a few blocks for my Red Star Quilt. 
 I made these little red flower stitcheries about 8 years ago, so I decided it was about time to put them in a quilt. 
 I found the red fabric in my stash and the backing is going to be a tablecloth 
I made about 5 years ago

Makes me feel like I'm getting a quilt for free.

 I also finished stitching Block 3 of Lynette Anderson's Christmas fun.
 And another block of My Garden, also by Lynette.  I've just realised I forgot to sew on the bird button which is why there is a beak and two legs just sitting by themselves.

On Friday the postie brought me two parcels.  One contained a lovely block from Mary as part of  Quilting Block Swaps Australia and one was a great magazine I won in a giveaway at fabulous Erin's blog, One Piece at a Time. The little bird houses are just there for decoration and because I think they are cute.
On the subject of giveaways there is a great one, an Accuquilt Go Baby, over at sweet Samelia's Mum's blog.
I'm linking into Show and Tell Monday over at Cookies and Cream Craft.  Why not join me.

Hope you have a great day.

  18. I love your stars and your stitching on them, but I have to ask about your scissors. What kind are they? Are they new? Still available? I have the hardest time finding scissors that are comfortable. I have arthritis so yours look like they would not hurt my hands.
