I loved this Christmas bunting 'show and tell' from Marie- Christine. Marie- Christine has used the reindeer and sleigh from the table runner project in my book 'Stitch It For Christmas' and re-created it as bunting....brilliant and I want to make some for my home.

 Tracie made this lovely gardening bag for her mum from one of the patterns in my book 'Stitch It For Spring'. The bag is from a heavy duck type canvas and is for keeping your small gardening tools in, a very clever use of the stitchery design.

Thank you to everyone who joined me over the two days and to the many ladies who brought show and tell that I forgot to photo as I was too busy admiring it! A big thank you to Karen for hosting the event. If your looking for my fabrics then here is a small selection that Karen has in her store and online.
