We're creeping ever closer to Christmas, how could the past 12 months have
moved along so very quickly!
First up before quilty photos see below. On the grocery shopping list
was a bottle of a good, rich red wine for my pasta dish for the evening meal.
As soon as I spotted this one on the shelf, I knew it had to come home with me!
A welcome addition to our meal.
I've been able to spend some time this week on my quilting,
first on my list was checking for stray threads
on two quilts ready to be sent off next week
First, with borders added, is Memory Quilt and you can see it was
a windy day. The story behind this quilt I will share in the New Year
when it's been quilted.
A blip with the watermark, a practically non-existent 'z'.
Second quilt was made quite some time ago, around three years I think, from
Quilts in Morocco by Kaffe Fassett.
I thought the hydrangeas were a good match.
A little more progress made with Mardi Gras
just pinned on the wall at the moment, 19 more blocks to make. I'll try different
settings when they're all finished. I'm loving playing
with strips and strings and as I have heaps I can see more string/strip quilts
in my future.
Something new now - I'm cutting solid 9" squares,
the pattern is inspired by Sujata Shah and her
superb book Cultural Fusion Quilts.
More squares to be cut this week. This is another in the
Memory Quilt category.
Time to go, a little time to spend on a few hexies and then
our two eldest grandchildren are coming for a meal with us.
Beatrice is the eldest at 19yrs and Charlie 17yrs.
Bea is training at a hair salon and Charlie heading off to
University in the New Year.
Doesn 't seem so long ago that we were sitting reading nursery rhymes
Enjoy the coming week and hopefully not be too stressed
with preparations for Christmas.
