Some Kind of Wonderful - blogtober



This year I have been busy stitching along with about 90-odd others. (That sounds like an insult, doesn't it? None of the 90-odd are "odd". Just not sure exactly how many of us there are!) We have been stitching Natalie Bird's "Tis the Season" and it has been a joy. We share our progress with each other via a Stitch-a-Long blog. It is an encouraging place to visit, and fun too! I enjoyed stitching Tis the Season so much I stitched two quilts worth. I finished the quilting on the second quilt today. That just leaves the binding and I'm sure I will finish it in the next couple of days. So this post is about our next stitch-a-long. It comes from Anni Downs book, "Some Kind of Wonderful".



The quilt is called "My Favourite Things". The first fabrics have been shown on the blog tonight. (Check it out here.) Many thanks to Chookyblue for such fun! I'm off to think about fabrics for the new SAL!

TTS was the first real stitching I ever did and even though I didn't officially play along I had a lot of fun watching all of you doing it.

I will not be following along with the next project- wayyyyyyy too big for me, but it's so pretty I must admit to being tempted for about half a second.
