A Little Stitching and a Winner

Have you seen the cute little cross-stitch along over at
I fell in love with the little
quilty blocks.
So, why not join in right?
Here is January's Block

And February's Block

You get to pick your own colors,
just like making your own mini quilt.
With this project,
I tested out my Q-Snap frame that
I picked up a month ago.
Let's just say,
I will not be using the round frames
These Q-Snap frames are definitely worth the money.
They hold your work so perfectly.

This one is the 6x6. 
Just perfect for this project.
So, I am a bit late to announce the
winner of the Grow Your Blog Party Surprise.
Thanks again to all my new and oldie (but goodie) followers.

Lots of fun things are going on!!

  7. your quilty stitches blocks look great, I'm only just starting the second one, but I'm doing my different, I like the way you've done yours. Qsnaps are the best, I bought my first one a year or so ago and have never looked back. I have 3 different sizes, but you can make loads of different sizes just by changing the little plug bits.

  8. Those cross-stitched quilt blocks are adorable. I started using Q-Snaps years ago -- they're SO much easier, aren't they?
