37 days to Christmas

Two more Christmas table runners
to add to my present pile.






Another Christmas present made, and this time I have discovered the maker of the pattern.. The City Stitcher, and it's called Sawtooth Cats. The picture does not really show, but I have made the cat with red eyes!

November 2nd







Finally I have managed to finish my "Quilt for an hour a day" quilt.
Having started well and over the first 6 days managed my "hour a day" I was then attacked by a virus that meant no sewing [or anything else!], so this weekend I have managed to complete the missing 9 hours and finish the top. I intend to back it and quilt it next year as I have too many projects I need to make for Christmas gifts.
Many thanks to Judy Laquidara for offering this quilting plan.

Green Lane trip starting in Helmdon

Yesterday was the only day this week we had time to go out and enjoy the Green Lanes [Byways], so we set off around 9am to travel to Helmdon...
