December 24

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

All done or as done as it will be. This is my favourite moment, when I decide I am not doing any more. Then the peace of Christmas decends and all is well. I have been working on my priorities for the last couple of years and family is definitely at the top of list, even topping out sewing. Eek! I always think I start sewing early enough but things come up. This year it was making receiving blankets and face clothes. Priorities!

I did get the two Christmas quilts done for the two year olds. Yeah!
May the peace of Christmas be with you and your family this holiday season.

WIP Wednesday - Baby Quilt

This quilt was quick to cut and to sew. All done in a morning. 

Love the owls! 
Not in a real hurry for this so it will be put away until 2016. Not that long at all.

Christmas Sewing

Tis the season for making a list and checking it twice, and it you are lucky, checking the items off said list. Could not sleep for the large to do list dancing in my head so got up and checked off a couple of items!!! Yeah for 3:30 up and atom. (Anyone else remember Atom Ant?)

First up my Christmas Stocking for my good friend's baby. She guilted me into it.  I have a list a mile long but managed to put this together in a morning. I also sandwiched a couple of baby blankets, no pictures.
 Love the November Bee Blocks, they are so cute. I may have to make a quilt like this myself.
And some red and white sewing, just because I have wanted to do it for ages!
And a finish. Bungle Jungle Stripe. With a striped binding and a peanut backing. The request was for grey with a hint of blue. To me this is the perfect fabric and I am almost out. I am already very sad.
Such a cute quilt should have better photos but I seem to be running out the door in the dark and coming home in the dark. Shortest day here we come!
