Second Stitchy Gift Received

My second giveaway item has finally swung its way to the other side of the world to Australia!  Joanne was the other winner of my March draw, who has also been a wonderful long time reader of mine.  It was so nice, being able to reward a couple of long time readers and commenters.


I put together this lovely biscornu for Joanne.


Grille Offerte Biscornu No. 3, freebie
Stitched on: Mystery fabric
Stitched with: DMC

Yesterday I made awesome progress on Enchantment of Winter the whole over one section is coming together beautifully.  I bet you're dying to see it but I'll save that for another post (I am such a tease!).  I'm hoping Thursday/Friday to get a lot of stitching done I'm going to head down to Ann's the owner of Knowledge and Needles to join in on her Thursday and Friday stitching groups.  Something I don't get to do very often due to the distance and well the fact that I am still working for a living... and to support this habit of mine ;-)

How about the last PhotoHunt to get me all caught up for 2011?  The theme on July 23rd the theme was "Patch".


Back in April I was visiting my friend Clare, she and I took a class by Jeannette Douglas together, one of my favourite Canadian designers.  On the way back to Clare's we stopped by this fiberarts exhibit and there were all kinds of wonderful pieces on display.  I was very impressed by this quilt... its amazing how patching and re-using old fabrics together has slowly over time turned into this amazing art form!
