Merry December.

Posted on | December 16, 2023 | 4 Comments

It has been a hectic time, but I am determined to do at least one December post!

Lots of shopping has happened, including these gorgeous biscuit tins. Love the way the bauble has been incorporated into the tin. And, yes, it spins!

The colour and the design on the tin could have easily fitted into my quilt. This is another panel being used and completed.

I have kept it simple with just a few borders added. Each of the squares have delightful images.

I found a lovely piece in my stash to use on the back.

The binding was a black with a small white spot.

The last few panel quilts I made have already been snapped up, so I am sure this one will be finding a home soon, too.

In between the busyness of Christmas we decided to visit a lovely home. This is the Bundoora Homestead which is located north of Melbourne. It was perfect weather to be out and about.

The rooms are being used as galleries for various artists. Great displays, but no photos allowed. The inside of the building was stunning and I could take photos of that.

This is a stained glass window in the ceiling.

Another ceiling.

Plenty of beautiful glass.

Something had us a bit stumped. What do you think this is for? I’d love to know.

The hand is holding a bar, so something could be tied around it. If it was near a window I would guess curtains. But they were in the corners of the room.

I found this fun pattern for Highland cattle, so of course, had to make one!

I finished all my little Santas to give away.

And to finish off, I am enjoying how well the garden is growing. Plenty of rain and not too hot – yet!

Not too many days left before Santa makes it here. Thankfully I am on top of most of the holiday preparations. I may even get to slow down a bit this week.

Hope all your plans are going well.

Cheers, Karen

  • Fun touring that old homestead! You’ve really got me curious what that hand is for!?! What an adorable highland cow! Who is the pattern by? Nice, timely quilt finish, and all those santas!!!

    The knitted cow is SO sweet! I always marvel at your ability to find unusual and unique patterns to make! Of course, the Santas are fun and the little quilt is so pretty to look at. And what a great tin! Thanks for sharing a little of your world with us!

  • Gorgeous quilt. Love the tin & the house looks interesting to visit.

    Those old houses are really quite special, arent they. Showing us how the other side lived back in the day. Your little Santas look cute, hope you are keeping one for yourself as well.
