Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Christmas Quiltalong! February, pt2

In the spirit of the Christmas, I have a glass of sherry here, and I will have a piece of Christmas cake soon too, when I've earned it!

I know that I am a novice here, but even I haven't really spent all day long since this morning just cutting out this fabric for the first two blocks! The sun has been shining here, and I couldn't resist popping over to the allotment to enjoy a little of it (and I have carrots and parsnip to have with tea, but more about that when I get round to it on the allotment blog)

But now I have a proper run for the next few hours I thought that I'd better update before I start some serious sewing.

I might just pop round to see how all the other QAL bloggers are doing first...


  1. Glad you're back. I'm looking forward to seeing your stars. Don't drink too much of the sherry before you start trying to put your star blocks together.

  2. I'm with you on having a sherry and Christmas cake to quilt along with. But I'm still in tea time zone, so I'll be having mine later:)

  3. I was going to say "bit early for sherry" but then I realised you posted at TWO minutes past six {giggle}.

    Glad you got to the lottie today, it was beautiful over at Harlow Carr.

  4. I was quite restrained with the sherry, actually, girls - too busy concentrating on seam allowances.

    Can't wait to hear more about Harlow Carr, Bilbo - suspect it looked very different to when you went last time, although just as interesting when you can see the 'bones' of a garden, I think.

  5. Hazel, Harlow Carr visit now online, hope you will find it interesting. It looked ~very~ different to the July outing.
