I think that Sew&So is usually expensive but I ordered some DMC threads because in Italy they are more expensive. I'm really happy because I received the pack this morning. I ordered the threads six days ago and now they are here! I purchased 39 threads and I payed each one only 0.77€. I usually pay each one 1.15€, so this time Sew&So was cheap!!!

About my goals, I don't usually make a list but I read many blogs and everyone makes a list. I decided some weeks ago to stitch daily both Terre de France and Once upon a time for a quarter. Done!!!

My October goals are about Christmas.
I would like to start stitching the four needlecase I have to prepare, then I'd like to stitch other two little patterns.
And I'm going to stitch till both Terre de France and Once upon a time. This kind of goal works with me.

Now I have some pictures to share.
I sewed a bit and I tried to make my first Dear Jane block. The result is not good and I'm going to make it again as soon as possible. I had joined an Italian group about Dear Jane and I was going to start it before summer but I had not enough time.
Here is the picture.

Then I started cutting some fabrics to sew the smaller blocks of my Christmas quilt. They will be 24 small blocks and I have to cut a lot of pieces... Here is the picture of the fabrics I'm going to use for them.

And finally I sewed L'Atelier de Brodeuse. I'm really happy about the fabric I chose. It turned out right for the colours I used in the pattern.

Hi Bea, I hope You get well, Christmass cloth are very nice, How do you cut it? With scossors or with cutter? I try too make some quilt but I'm too imprecise in cutting the fabric so my quilt became disaster!!!Compliments for your work Atelier de Brodeuse is pretty !!

I LOVE your Atelier de Brodeuses!

As for threads, I am in the very same situation: Sew&So is much cheaper even with the shipping costs! :o/

Your Atelier de Broduese is lovely!!! The fabric is perfect, too. I really have to pull that one out again. I can't believe DMC is so expensive over there! If you watch for sales over here, you can sometimes get 5 skeins for a dollar (only 20 cents!!).
