A belated Happy Christmas

Life has been extremely hectic over the last few weeks, preparing for Christmas, so I never got here to wish you all a Happy Christmas. I do hope you all had a wonderful, healthy and peaceful time.

We had a very extended Christmas this year, spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with my SIL, then rushing home to prepare to welcome our sons and their partners for the next few days. They finally left yesterday after a wonderful family time together. It's all too rare that we all manage to get together like that.

Here are a few pictures.

This is a cafetiere cosy that I made for my older son and his partner

This is an iPad mini case that I made for my younger son. Sadly I didn't have an iPad mini to work with and it didn't turn out too brilliantly.

These are some earbud cases that I made, one for each of us.

Ruby entered into the spirit of Christmas.

But it was all too much for her - and for a few other people!

12 x 12 challenge

My local quilt shop, the wonderful Midsomer Quilting, held a 12" x 12" mini quilt challenge, with the theme of books. Last year's inaugural event was Fruit and this year there were even more stunning quilts. I've photographed them all and entitled those I can remember or work out. If I get hold of a list of all of the quilt names I'll edit the slideshow - and apologies if I've misnamed any of the exhibits.

Next year's challenge is Movies so perhaps you could think of some ideas of films for me to use!
