A bit of Stitching at last

Finally I'm back doing a bit of stitching ........ I made a start on one of the Sally Giblin designs I purchased on the weekend..... "Miss Bossy Boots" using some of the fabrics already here in my stash.....
 
 
I've also managed to get a little Christmas decoration stitched up ready for a swap I'm organising for one of the online groups I run....... I'm pleased with the way it's turned out.......
 
Last year I purchased a number of face washer with the intention of making them into little kitchen and laundry hand towels...... I managed to get a couple done by sewing some fabric tops to them, but I decided this time to try a crochet top, especially after seeing what Astri did with some kitchen tea towels.......... so here is my version which I'm pretty happy with and plan to make a few more of them for stocking fillers.......
Monday I took a drive 170 kms along the Murray Valley Hwy to Echuca to meet up with a friend who was down from Brisbane.  We've been doing this for a few years now each time she comes down to Vic to visit her Mum who lives further up the Murray around Swan Hill.......... here's a little pic of the Murray River at Echuca for you to see ....... it's famous for its paddle steamers.....
