A Seasonal Blog

Happy Christmas USA or Happy Boxing Day England.....

Little S made this foundation pieced bookmark from his mum.  Hope she liked it!

H made this for her Dad and she then made another one for her mum, but I forgot to photo it.

Big S made this for her mum.  There are some lucky mums around this year!

And I was lucky too, because I treated myself to this book after seeing it on a blog.

And another little book too.

Thanks Jackie for the quilting notebook!

Thanks to Auntie P and Uncle G for these lovely lavender sachets.

Thanks also to Auntie P and Uncle K for the recycled denim fabric notepaper

Three new pairs of scissors - really cheap £2 for all three - the expensive pair that I had self destructed the other week!

Christmas stitching

Tinkerbell doesn't seem to be bothered that this quilt is unfinished.  It still needs binding, but then I did start it for Christmas 2009, and quilted it 2010 and will take it to my mums tomorrow to trim before binding.

She's helping make the Christmas wall hanging.

Stippling with random holly leaves.

And here it is finished - not easy to take a photo of it when I haven't put a hanging sleeve on yet.
Imperial Quilter's challenge fabrics - make a spring wallhanging using these fabrics and adding no more than two others - to be displayed at the April Quilt Show.  The purple one has the same pattern as a green one that both me and my DIL liked and I bought some when in Atlanta in October.... so I think I'll have to add that.
