First up is the baby quilt that I have been working on. I've almost finished the hand quilting which is a simple cross hatch. For some reason the final section seems to be taking forever. I really have to concentrate on it this week as I want to post it on Saturday. Yes, it means that I won't be doing the housework as thoroughly as I should but it's only temporary.

I have finished stitching Just Nan's Snowflowers. The colours are so delicate I find it hard to take a photograph that does this piece justice. I've ordered a frame online and as soon as I get that it will be laced up and inserted. I haven't enjoyed stitching this as much as I thought I would, as I found it difficult to get the #8 perle cross stitches to lie as well as I would like. On the plus side, the recipient will receive it in plenty of time for her birthday.

So what will be next? I have some Easter stitching which I am completing for an exchange and I will be starting another baby quilt. The baby is due this week, so once I know whether it is a boy or a girl, I will be able to make my fabric decision.
