As you will see from my Countdown on my blog there are six months to go before Christmas and yet on some of my favourite Blogs Christmas things are starting to appear!! I really do admire these Quilty Ladies who start to plan and execute their Christmas projects now and they are all done and sorted in plenty of time for the Gift Giving period.
I try to be organised but sometimes with my quilting it does not happen!! In fact I have done no quilting for ages as I was trying to get the Spring Cleaning finished and decorating and getting the garden sorted. However I am hoping from now on I will have a little bit of time to get things done. I have some quilts which need binding and then I can perhaps start planning some Christmas quilting.
I have my eye on some pretty Christmas fabrics already.
This is Makower Christmas 21 London Icons which is out now, I will be looking out for this.
This is called “Snow Day Red Wagon Christmas” and I think I will be getting this for DH & The Boys.
Loved this material for Christmas cooking.
The big quilt show, Festival of Quilts, is on this year, Yeah, at the end of July and my tickets arrived last week for the show. It will be so nice to go and although there won’t be any speakers, there will hopefully be lots of stalls and the fabulous quilts. I am hoping to get quite a few fabrics there. I was saving up with “Val’s Quilting Studio” for the year to spend on something quilting and usually spend what I have saved at the quilt show. Obviously it was cancelled last year so I have two years savings to spend by the time we go in July!!!! I think I will have to take an extra large bag with me!
I hope you all had a great weekend. DH and I got the garden sorted on Saturday and it did not take very long after all the work we put in last year during the Lockdowns, so something good came of that. We do have some trimming of trees etc to do but that can be done any time. It was warm but not too bad. Yesterday it was VERY warm, so I sat outside reading whilst DH hid in the garage, which is under our home and quite cool messing around with the sound equipment. Although he did say it got warm in there too! I think I probably over did it a bit as I have felt off today, so have spent the day at my desk in the dark working!! Of course having had a few nice warm days they are now forecasting thunder storms for the middle of the week which is typical. Hopefully it will be nice again for the end of the week and weekend.
Have a wonderful week you lovely lot.
Hugs & Love, Susie xx
