So, the holiday involved lots and lots of this....
....to the point where I needed to hire a rather large trailer to get rid of it all (and this is only half way through the ''gardening experience'' - not much was safe from the jaws of the secateurs or lopers!) Oddly enough I couldn't quite squeeze it into the wheelie bin.
We went for walks - Jake took his bike....
...and I took my camera.
And then there was a little of this....
I started stitching these little pieces which are to make up into Natalie's (Cinderberry Stitches) Secret Garden sewing tote. I am making mine using the Heritage range of fabrics from Moda and it is nearly all finished. I am really delighted with how it is looking.
I have also finished block 8 of the Redwork Christmas - gingerbread men and houses - yum!
Take a look at this very very cute little range of granny prints that arrived the day before Christmas. So sweet - I am really keen to make a little cot quilt in a traditional pieced design - I'll show you when I have got it started.
I am looking forward to planning some new classes this year, and I already have two quilt patterns sitting there, begging to be started. The year awaits - and what to start first!
