"The final finishes for 2015."

Hello,

Christmas has been and gone, it was a lovely occasion at Kainga with family from overseas and interstate.

There has been a bit of sewing, I finished the top of the scrappy quilt.


I will have to wait until the craft shop re-opens to pick up some wadding and backing.


This was certainly a great scrap buster, even got to use up some machine embroidery and applique bits and pieces that have been in the sewing room for ages.


This little bag makes a great present, this one was for my niece. I filled it with sunscreen lip balm etc.


Miss Mary Mack has been back from the framers for a while. I am so pleased with the framing on this one. I tried a new framer and I am very impressed with the detail of the framing.


The embroidery machine was working overtime before Christmas. I made a couple of sets of coasters. Using the same pattern but changing what goes in the middle of each one. These were all made in the hoop.


This has been a year long project, finished part two of the Paris Stitch Along. Hopefully the next two parts won't take as long to stitch.


 We are getting some lovely sunsets here at Kainga.

 I would like to thank each and everyone who reads this blog and those who are regular commentator's I truly appreciate you dropping by to see what is happening at Kainga. May 2016 be a fantastic year of finishes and gardens that bloom and lots of Happy Days to you all.

Happy days.

Wonderful scrappy quilt! I always enjoy seeing what you're working on. You're also one of a dying breed of x-stitchers, so it's always nice to see what you're stitching! So glad that your holidays were good ones. I wish you the best in 2016...thanks for your wish for a year of finishes. I'd love that!
