A Christmas quilt in a field of summer...What a striking photo.
Very crisp and vintage looking quilt...wait till you see it laid out....
A sunset photo is always soooo captivating..

She actually created 5 projects in 5 days..now that is downright
inspiring....I always love the stitches this quilter brings to life...



This is allllll CROSS STITCH-this quilter loves this form of stitching impression..
Wait till you see how large this is...the detail is overwhelming...
A beautiful holiday stitching..."over the river and through the woods...."
YOU know the rest....

This quilter captured this from some angel images....she hand stitched and machine
stitched each angel...a perfect centre piece for a flower arrangement or a festive candle...
Hard not to swept by this angelic piece....

  29. Another lovely blog hop day with so many beautiful projects. I am so happy that you have picked my angels and that so many blog hoppers love them. Maybe I should make a pattern? It is still summer in Sweden, but I must admit that I can already smell a hint of ginger cookies and hot red sweet spiced wine (glögg) a specialty that we drink during Christmas time.
