Like most of you... i ABSOLUTELY LOVE Christmas!!
It is definately one of my most favourite things.
I love the Christmas Spirit in our home, i love cooking, making things with the kids, delivering pressies, i LOVE Christmas shopping, i love getting together, i love the food, the carols, decorating and Christmas lights. I think i got my insane obsession from my mum. We have always had the most amazing Christmas' growing up. So, when i caught the end of this range from the Fat Quarter shop newsletter...at midnight one night, i jumped on the computer and ordered the last of it. Its the Jim Shore Christmas fabric, you can still buy some HERE.
However, by this time of year, i am really ready to put all the decorations away....
but i promised i would show you a few pics of this latest Quilt.
regular quilts. But there is something about Christmas, that i feel you just need a real 'Traditional' style quilt. Mums house is full of Jim Shore figures, Snowmen, Nativities, Angels, Santas...so i used one of the Wise men, as the inspiration for the design of this Quilt.
I hope you had a great Christmas...and i want to wish you all a Happy New Year!!
I really thank you for all of your comments of encouragement and support over these last 6 months since i started this blog. They have been a HUGE source of strength for me. I have had a horrible year. It makes me teary to look back and think about all that we have been through. But i'm hoping 2011 is better. We sadly sold our family home, but have found another nice home close by. We are moving next week, it will be fun to set up a new house...with a SEWING ROOM!! I have lots of big plans for 2011....Family, getting oragnised, lots of ideas for new quilts and i am excited to share them all with you. Quilting and blogging have been a huge escape and i really appreciate your comments and look forward to a New Year and what it will bring. xxx
