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.

I'm expecting to see a lot of finishes in 4 weeks time, lol. I have that book as well, but haven't made anything from it yet, got side tracked on other things, maybe next year.
I'm sure you will race through your CW blocks, they're such a joy to make, the hardest part is selecting the fabrics.

We have nearly cleared all our hurdles on the lead up to Christmas so I can relate to your sigh of relief. Good luck with the block catch up and have a fabulous Christmas Day. Take care.
