Are you all enjoying winter? It is a great time of year to stitch away the days and nights, snuggled up with the cat and a cuppa. Hubby doesn't mind some attention now and then too although I might drop a stitch. Dilemma! I started this quilt -as- you- go hexie table mat on the retreat last weekend and finished it a couple of days ago. I hadn't considered quilting it but am now thinking it will need it if it is to be washed a few times. On the other hand, if the batting bunches up in each individual hexie it may just give it a puffy look. Question.... do you think it will be okay not to quilt it? Do you think it would be best quilted? I am a hand quilter, so if I do quilt it I then have the next question. HOW?
I finished the 3rd last Crazy Cat block. The other 2 shall be completed soon. Wooohooo!
Another Christmas stitchery is in my hoop. This is the 4th one I have done of this particular design to make into pressies.
On the way to San Remo for the retreat last weekend, we stopped at a few shops along the way. One shop had heaps of 1800s repros so I bought some to add to my every growing collection.
These are the books I read last month. I can highly recommend Kate Morton's books. This is her 4th book, great to see another successful Aussie writer. The other fiction author is new to me but I did enjoy it. Ofcourse, I love any bios about womens' role in war.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!
I am due to send my 12" mini to someone who remains a secret. Unfortunately it won't be posted until next week as it is still being finished. Here is a peek.
BUT, I have already received mine from Peg. She has sooooooo spoiled me! Thankyou so very very much Peg.
IT is a gorgeous Anni Downs design. I think Peg knows I like her patterns.
What was in that box? A CAFE !!!!
Sorry about all the pics on this post. That's what happens when I don't update for so long.
Thanks so much for stopping by again. Keep warm and snug. Angel Blessings to you all.
