**Be sure to enter my fantastic giveaway here - open until Monday!**

Only the smallest of finishes this week. I made another star based on Blonde Designs tutorial (let's ignore the fact I said no more decorations!!). This time, since I find it more comfortable sitting with my feet up, I decided to english paper piece this one. I cut out the five shapes of the template twice, pieced the stars and then sewed them together. This star is slightly larger than the others but, to be totally honest, her method is way faster and easier.

I also finished up two more rose stars recently - here's block 27 and 28:

Last night I also did a bit of stitching, which was just so relaxing and fun. I used some Summersville (available here or here) and just embroidered whatever bits I fancied using perle thread. I know a few people have done this and I was totally inspired this summer after I saw the fantastic talents of Allegory and Susan. Mine was simpler but still effective I think:

This is on it's way to being made into a Christmas present.
