I do still have a few UFOs to finish, but it is always great to start something new at the beginning of the year.
In keeping with my love of bright colours I have chosen these fabrics.
And I planning to use them in this pattern.
This is Kitchen Window from Elizabeth Hartman’s book, The Practical Guide To Patchwork. I will use the black for framing but will change the background to white or cream.
I have nearly finished this UFO.
This is a mystery quilt I started 12 months ago. I finished the quilting last night. The binding went on this morning and now I only have the hand stitching left to do.
I have enjoyed a lot of time relaxing between Christmas and New Year. Most time was spent reading the last four books in the Elm Creek Quilt series, and now I am enjoying Mrs Lincoln’s Dressmaker.
It is sometimes funny the little bits and pieces we collect over the Christmas break. I have really enjoyed seeing all the different supermarket bags that came out in seasonal decorations.
And of course all the biscuit tins. (But I always wait until after Christmas for those when they are on special.)
I am pleased to have all the Christmas decorations down and packed away, as well as all the holiday washing done.
I think that deserves a cuppa and a book to read!
