'Christmas Through The Year' for April

Welcome to CTTY for 2017
 
I hope you will join me in the coming months... linking up the gifts you're making for Festive Season giving.
If you don't know what 'Christmas Through The Year' is all about, or you need a little reminder of how it works, please click on the CTTY tab at the top of the page; it's all there!

I've started my 2017 Festive giftie stash with a small item... a cross stitched bookmark... one of the many kits I have for such things... nice & easy to stitch, & sewed up quickly.
I'm sorry for the poor quality of these pics:(
 
This is actually the 2nd one of these butterfly kits I've stitched now... the first one was so well received a while back, so it was easy to pick out another for a quick stitch & finish.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

The CTTY linky will always appear in my blog post for the 18th of each month.
It's open from 6am on the 18th of the month, closing at midnight on the 21st.

Finished items... progress pics... Christmas theme gifts & non-Christmas theme gifts...
They're ALL welcome!

Hello. I stopped here from a link on Wendy's blog. She won your excellent give a way. I was looking through past posts and was really interested that you enjoy hand quilting. I have made just one quilt so far and am stitching cupcakes on each block. I have a question I hope you will answer.

A few posts ago, I saw that you preferred hand quilting to machine quilting. Do you transfer a quilt design to the quilt? If so, do you have past posts that mention that process. I am thinking that I will like hand quilting much more than machine quilting as I am really enjoying stitching these cupcakes. I'm your newest follower from Northern Indiana USA.
