Olympic Sewing!

As I mentioned before...the Olympic games have given my stitching hands a real work out!
This little mini has been keeping me occupied with a bit of applique, embroidery and pick stitching...


It is nearly finished...
I've also been chugging away at the 'wedding quilt'....all applique so far...


And I have been drooling over a fantastic gift given by my sweet friend, Sara :)
Sara was just in the UK enjoying the Olympics and thought of me while in the Liberty shop!  Oh my STARS!  
She picked up a package of pre-cut hexies and papers....of course, all yummy Liberty fabrics!


Seriously!  Is there anything more beautiful!   
I am such a greedy girl - all I can think of is how I want even more!  
I love it!

   
I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends....thank you Sara....I **heart** you!
It's Friday!
