My week in stitches

This weekend has been spent celebrating so not a lot of stitching going on, my grandson Mitchell turns four on 13th December and his mummy was 30 on Friday so on Saturday we had a joint birthday party for them. I forgot my camera, so sorry no pics.
I did however manage to get the penguin quilt quilted, so just the binding to go. All over stipple, shadow quilting around the snowflakes and penguins, and I tried a more longer quilting on the snow, as I had seen this method used on quilts for sky and grass, I like now it looks, I used a soft grey thread to match the grey dots which is the more dominating colour.

Tonight relaxing watching a movie I managed to finished the April stitchery on a year of blooms BOM.

Here are the first four

Now to do one row in the row along, then back to some quilting in the floral sampler wall hangings.
Have a great week everyone. quilted hugs, Sue
