Gail Pan Stitch Along

It's time to link up with Martine over at Sunshine Quilts for the
Gail Pan Stitch along
for January I decided to do a small sampler from Gail's book
Patchwork loves Embroidery
I have bordered it with some favourite fabric.
I brought quite a few metres a couple of years ago
have no idea who it is by but this is just about all that is left.

I am undecided if I will leave it this size and make a small hanging from it
 or put another couple of borders on and make a pillow.
So that is my first ( almost finish)
I am really excited by my choice for next month
I think it will be really pretty.
I also had another Gail finish
These stitcheries were a free block a few Christmas' ago
I have had them made up & quilted for a while
and then as happens it just sat and waited for me to
bind it and add a sleeve.
This is going to be an overseas gift for this Christmas.
So one gift down already.

I am excited to go visit all the other blogs and see what people are doing
to see for your selves go to
Martine at Sunshinequilting and check it out.
Bye for now
Happy Stitching.

So lovely and a great match with this stitches and fabric. And the christmas wish looks so beautiful. This christmas wish BOM was the pattern which got me into stitchery. I had never done it before, lol!
So happy you joined us, hugs martina

Beautiful stitchery, love the color it matches perfectly with the border. Christmas wall hanging/quilt is a lovely present for someone.

Your stitchery is cute. I remember stitching those blocks a few Christmases ago. Your finished wall hanging looks good.
