As you can see I love christmas. I went into a shop a few months ago called The Christmas Beetle. I love going there. Well, at the time I went into the shop, they were going a block of the month called Christmas in Italy. I feel in love with it and so my passion for quilting commenced. The design is by Lenna Green based on her holiday in Italy. As I stitch, and cut and create each block I wish I as in Italy. I have of late been a bit behind in the block month but am catching up.
I have alwaysl like the poem Twas the night before christmas. It takes me back to times when things were simple. I know there are a number of variations of the design but I like this one by Hugs ‘n Kisses. It basically uses two colors red and white. And I love the red cotton by DMC which is varigated. It is lovely. Well I have finished the blocks which I had to stitch. I was a bit upset with one of them as the pattern used iron-on transfers and it was very challenging to do and to make matters worst, one of the patterns had a unwanted line in it. But it is amazing that after one wash it started to lightened down. Hopefully it will disappear. I hope you enjoy what I have done .
