Abigail Rose Quilt

I've actually got around to some sewing on Abigail's quilt but have run out of the light background fabric.
Thank goodness for the Internet and have had a lovely afternoon searching and eyeying up lots of gorgeous fabrics but I have stuck to my guns and only bought what I need. Wow what's wrong with me!!!!!
I have hexagons to make whilst I'm waiting for the fabric to arrive. I've been making this quilt up as I go along and still don't have a clear vision of the finished quilt. I'm just going with the flow and where my heart takes me with this. 

Lots of hexagons to be made but I enjoy making these whilst sitting by the fire in the evenings with a good film on. 

Hoping your all staying warm and getting lots of sewing done.

At Last

Yes as last I'm back, January I was full of cold for most of the time but my head is now clear and sewing has commenced again. 
So what have been up too, well I finished Max's quilt and when he's big enough for his cot bed it will be ready for him.

Then I finished my Texas Stars and it took a while to decided on the fabric to set them in. I was determined to dig into my stash and after lots of diliberation came up with this one. It's will be going to Cornwall at the end of the month for quilting. 

So now it's back to my Di Ford Sutton Grange. This is going to take me a while and I still have Abi's quilt to get on with too

It's really cold here at the moment but have escaped the snow that has been falling further north. It's just the weather for staying inside by the fire and sewing and that's just what I'm going to do. 

Happy stitching.

Christmas Post

The weeks just seem to fly by and here we are with Christmas upon us. 
Whilst out doing some shopping I spotted this quilt in the local pop up market. 

Nice even quilting and in good condition. I've always wanted to make an Ocean Waves quilt but haven't got round to it, so this means I probably won't have to make one now!!!! Justified it as an early Christmas present from me to me, it's good to choose your own presents don't you think? Lol 

My double nine patch came back from the longarm quilter and is now bound and ready for use. I had simple baptist fan quilting and am pleased with the result. 

Abi's quilt is coming along and here's where I'm up to.
I have been working away on my Texas Stars and they are coming along quite nicely. Not long now and I have the making of a quilt.

I've had a wonderful year with family and meeting up with stitching friends from around the world. 
Here's wishing you a peaceful Christmas and wonderful stitching New Year. 
See you in 2015

I would like to wish all my American friends Happy Thanksgiving.
Here's my Turkey Track quilt for you all today. 

Hope you enjoy Thanksgiving dinner with you freinds and family. 
No cooking for me today I'm looking forward to turkey dinner with my American next door neighbour tonight. 
Fun how I can celebrate your holiday from my side of the pond.
