Read and red.
Actually got to sew today!!
Threw off the post Christmas lethargy and got to work.....if I'm not careful I may do housework!! (No-I did enough of that pre-Christmas and everyone else is on holiday.......)
Made Clare (Dordogne quilter) some red and white blocks for her leukeumia quilts. There should be four but the 4th refused to end up 8 and a half in time for tea so I threw in the towel!! I HAVE to work on baby quilts next as the baby was due today and I don't want these UFO's to carry over to the New Year, so 3 blocks will have to do.
A close up of my Christmas quilting literature for those that were interested.
* 'This old quilt' is really appealing to me with great pics and good short stories about quilting as well. I especially love the beautiful watercolour prints.
* 'Crazy for quilts' had interesting anecdotes and some good pics but finished too soon, I like my pics and reading more balanced so the book lasts longer.
*'Every quilt tells a story' is full of interesting stories about quilting but no real pics and I haven't started the Emilie Richards novel yet but it looks good. The quilting pattern a day calendar is fabulous. I had it last year and everyone loves the 365 pics and instructions for every day of the year. It's good to have a calendar that is a resource you can use for life.
Off for a day at the beach today as the cricket was all over in 3 days, 10th win in a row to us. I prefer my cricket closer but a win is a win. Good for the kids to play with their cousins in the sand.
PS I hadn't actually posted this so I will now. Beautiful day at the beach visiting the family. I'll take some photos when we go back next week to tantalise the poor Northern Winter people!! I checked out Moda's new Sanctuary range at my favourite beautiful quilt shop today, even though I am a big scrap person, I think this is appealing to me, I may have to feed up those chooks to make more egg money!!
