Slowly coming together

I’ve been busy trying to juggle things in my life the last couple of weeks.  What with family and work and studies, I have had very little time to do as much quilting as I would like.  I have been able to complete something small things.  I have completed at least the small stitchery in BOM 3 of It’s Time for Christmas.  It’s a lovely little basket full of candy.

I’ve also had to catch up with another BOM I’m doing – Welcome to the North Pole.  I have done two blocks – The Marble House and the Sleigh Shed.  Some I have not completed the later though.

 I also been trying to complete a few more things and working on a few more…just need more times in the day.  Holidays are coming up for me so I should be able to do some more.

It’s Time for Christmas

It's time for ChristmasWell a few months ago I came across this quilt.  I fell in love with it, so I ordered the material which I have just got and started on the first block.  I love the fabric range – with most of it being French General which has a lovely range of colors.  The only problem is that it is very popular and if not snapped up quickly – it can be gone.  This quilt tends to use a variety of the French General range.  The first block is Shopping Day show the snowman going shopping.  The second block is The perfect pudding – I’d like to think that was what the snowman was shopping for.  The quilt was designed by Bronwyn Hayes from Red Brolly.  Looks like I have some catching up to do…
