Bowl Cozies

 It is the count down to Christmas, 2 more sleeps. I have sent off the parcel to Granny and Grandad. Have not yet heard if they have received it but I mailed it 10 days ago (feeling virtuous). I made Christmas Cookies last night, Speculaas, and burned 2 of the trays. I am not that sad as I probably would have eaten them all (which I did), just faster. Having them slightly charred has curbed my munching.

I am making bowl cozies to send away. Unfortunatley I keep giving them away. Martin's daughter was here and gave 2 to her, she has been admiring them. And my cousin just fell and broke her shoulder. Seemed like it might be a good thing for her to have, either that or they will be too much to hold onto and she spills down the front. Feeling slightly guilty already and she doesn't even have them.
Here in BC we are to isolate and do everything in our power to stop the spread. I finally have my head around the idea and am looking forward to some Christmas sewing. I NEED a new Christmas quilt, lol, not. These are matching quilts I made for Martin and I. Actually I need to work on my Bee Blocks that are almost a year over due. So am very much looking forward to checking them off my list. 

I have 3 adult girl quilts to make for my nieces. They have turned or will be turning 21 which is when I said they would get their quilts. One is to be green, one blue and one red. I am thinking the same patter and just different main colours.
Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
This is our tree this year and I am very happy with it!

Girl Quilts

 So I needed 4 girl quilts and only made 3. 

For my favourite waitress. Girl quilt instead of boy quilt. 

And team mate Amy for baby Isabel.

And team mate Julia for baby Penelope, to be called Poppy.

Team mate Sanaa will have to wait until the new year.

Boy Quilts

I made 2 the same. Is there a rule about this? One is for my naturopath and one for my favourite waitress. I very much doubt their 2 worlds will ever collide. And I very much liked the pattern and the fabric. My grandson noticed it was the same fabric from his quilt. 
A simple design with fabulous fabric. 

The backing is adorable and I am very happy with it. If I had been thinking I would have bought some kind of fish fabric, lol. Oh well.

2 boy quilts done! I presented one and the backing was more loved than the front, LOL. When I went to gift the second quilt it turns out she had had a girl not a boy, oops. 

Quilt for Katie and one in reserve!
