At last some sewing time…

to make this little quilt for a dear friend of mine Sharon, as a Christmas exchange gift.
It is a pattern called Fanfare from Sarah Fielke’s new book ‘Quilting from little things’ and I had a lot of joy making it. I hope to make a few more little quilts this year.
This quilt is machine pieced ( not foundation) and hand appliqued and hand quilted.

We had our Family Christmas lunch last Saturday, so yipee! it’s all over rover for me. I can now just enjoy some sewing time, once we close the office on the 23rd December for 4 weeks!.
I Love it when the grandkids come. There were only 3 of them here this time, but my MIL the Matriarch at 93 was at the head of the table. She’s not sure why now, or who every-one is, but she is healthy in her body and is still enjoying her life.

  I am way behind on my Civil War Blocks – about 12 weeks I think, so that will be my next project.
Thanks for dropping by, and in case I don’t blog again before Christmas, have a wonderful time.
