One word.....................Liberty

I was at my local patchwork store - Amitie the other week and just couldn't resist these. What on earth am I going to do with a fat 1/8th of each of these?

Aren't they just gorgeous?

Another Christmas Quilt

The Festive Season brings so much joy and happiness that we wan't to share around. My kids absolutely love Christmas time (like all children). I like the idea of handmade and useful items around the home with a Christmas theme. Other than my 'tis the season quilt I'm planning on having this gorgeous quilt done by Christmas - I started it about two mths before last Christmas.......ah well.

Here is a picture of the original by Rosalie Quinlan. I was looking for an advent quilt as I was sure SOMEONE would have designed one and came across this which I love. My intention is to put little candy canes/lollies or notes to my little ones in the pockets........

Here is some of my progress

I need to add the little pockets with the stitched advent numbers.

I love Rosalie's work. I'm also doing her Dollie's quilt but will post on that another time......

Happy Stitching everyone...........

'tis the season SAL update

Hello all, I have been working on some projects, despite not posting alot of the my machine is serviced I can put the blocks of my 'tis the season SAL together.....I've now finished all the stitching......I should probably have one last check of them as its easy to miss something that I haven't stitched!

I think this one has to be my favourite......

Although I am partial to these....

I really need to iron them now. Hoping I can get a chance to at least cut the borders this week.

Happy Stitching
