BUT the last thing I need is to spend more time on the internet looking at more ideas instead of sewing !
So One thing I wanted to finish off this week is my stitch compendium - where I have been making a
stitch-out of all the stitches on my machine. I am lucky to have a Brother Nv1 and it is a great a machine but I suspect I have only scratched the surface of what it can do.
I have found so many lovely stitches I can't wait to use them on some projects - particularly crazy patches or bags. They look very different when stitched.
I have also finally got a new design wall !!
It is a large piece of insulation wall board which I have covered and it fits nicely behind the door but can also be laid flat for pinning out quilts.
I have also re-arranged my small quilts and wall hangings and have made a couple of miniature quilts this week while sitting in front of the fire in the living room keeping warm, as it has been so cold here this week.

I haven't posted a picture of my new bed runner yet
- it is braid quilt I designed to fit on the bottom of our bed -QUICK TO DO !
Then to finish off the week I won a give away !
It is a new DVD by Diane Doran - Digital Surface Design and I am looking forward to it arriving.
It has some great ideas for the use of Photoshop Elements for art quilts
Don't forget to visit the Blog Hop as there is still time to enter many of the give aways ( including mine!)
Thanks for stopping by
