Retro vintage square quilt

 And now it's all sewn together.  5" squares.  It's my smallest quilt to-date.  Lap size.  My favourite square is the green (Flower Sugar by Lecien).  I wish I could find more to buy.  I only got one 30cm strip :(.  Somehow I missed the entire range.  My fabric buying has been very slow due to my self imposed "austerity measures".  I'm about to buy more thanks to my eldest who has gifted me a gift certificate for an online fabric shop.  I am so excited...best present EVER!  It's orange lime and magenta time!  That's what I'm feelin' right now.  A very bright dynamic quilt will emerge in the next few months.

Another quilt top to add to the pile!

Christmas Jam

This year's batch is Berry Raspberry Jam.  Made with mostly raspberries, but a few mixed berries thrown in.  It's quite sharp, but I think it's a good batch.  Hopefully recipients will too!

Christmas cake

Oops....I forgot to take a picture before I cut the Christmas Cake.  It is yum.
On Saturday, I spent a happy hour and a bit cutting out this simple quilt top.

Two days later that's exactly how it still looks!
Shame I'd really hoped to sew it up.  Maybe one night this week.....

It's Christmas Time

The tree is up!  How I love it!  How I LOVE it!

Here's panoramic shot of the room.  We were getting ready for a celebration on Sunday.
