American Museum

It is the season when the American Museum in Bath .

 opens up for it's Christmas event. The house is beautifully decorated throughout  and the piece de resistance is the Christmas tree in the main hall . Decorated this year with bunting made by the volunteers from the museum.

Of course no trip to the museum is complete without visiting the quilts and I found several on show this time which are not in the book and  that I hadn't seen before.
So here we go with some  quilty photos for you to enjoy. .

That's just a few photos I have taken will post more next time. Hope you enjoyed them?

A Bit of This and That

Well I am still here and have been working on my challenge quilt . Show and tell date for showing this  is 1st January so you will still have to wait a while to see what Barb, Lori , Jill and I have been up too.

Do you remember this ?  Well I have got back into making more and more Klosjes and now have these.
I was hoping making these would have made a dent in the scrap bag, but sadly NOT so I will continue to make them and start adding more borders of them.

I was very excited yesterday as my Special Winter edition of Quiltmania arrived. I would love anyone of the 12 projects inside this edition.  Note I say love anyone and Not MAKE everyone.I would like to make all of them but theirs another couple of years I have to find for  living. I need to find the potion for eternal  youth so I can fit it all in.
Linda from and Margaret from both have quilts in there. Well done ladies they are beauties.


Thursday we a special day for me here in the UK as I was invited to my neighbours for Thanksgiving dinner. This is not a holiday we celebrate here but  am now thankful I was asked as it was all very nice and it is  something else  I have ticked of the bucket list.

So better late then never I will leave you with a photo of my Turkey Tracks Quilt  and hope all of you on the other side of the pond had a delicious turkey dinner  with all the trimmings as I did.

Happy Stitching
