Friday Night with Friends and new wall hanging


As I said in my last post, I joined Cheryll (thank you, Cheryll, for hosting this evening) and others for Friday night stitching. It is quite interesting, sitting there and stitching, knowing that a group of ladies are doing the same thing at the same time (in their time zones, of course). 
Was anyone indulging in mince pies? I was :-)
Or maybe something stronger?
Well, it was cold and frosty outside.






What was I making? Again, a last minute idea. Our dining room is nearly finished and I have decided that one of the walls is just crying out for a new wall hanging. I had this pattern at home for a long time, so now is the right time for it.  
The pattern for Winter House Quilt comes from Cowslip and it makes a quilt, or the central block can be used for a wall hanging. It can be adapted for any time of year, of course.



                                 







  Before last night I got as far as this,



                                and last night I added 2 doves at the top.






I have been trying different shades of gold for the stars, but I am still not sure which shade works best. 
Unfortunately the difference can't be seen very clear here.



The border comes next.

I wish you all a very good weekend!

Nice to see your Friday stitching - a cute little house and I love the star-tree. And how do I make a mince pie?

Beautiful stitching as always..I love the house; specially its chimney, so cute.

I like your house block Radka - especially the way the trees soften the design.

Stunning Radka. I think I might have to get back into the habit of joining FNSI and FNWF. Might actually make me get something done lol.
