I'm a bit late with my Christmas wishes this year as I had a migraine on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - just typical for me! It was what I call a 'walking' migraine so I was up and about and enjoyed the day anyway.
Unfortunately, I didn't get time to do a Christmas related drawing so I'm posting some little Christmas quilts I made a few years ago but have never posted. This one, above, is made from mini Log Cabin blocks and was a lot of fun to do. It probably says something about me that I especially enjoyed doing the plain blocks in the background!
A Christmas tree skirt which is supposed to have a slit into the centre so it can be draped around the base of a tree. I just preferred it like this so it is often used as a table cloth as the square fits one of our tables exactly.
One of the blocks. This is copied from a pattern in an American quilt magazine as I loved the colour scheme and tried to match it as much as I could (probably the only time I've wanted to do that). The stitching in the centre was done using a thick thread in the bobbin, marking and stitching the underside.
Unusually for me, I've made some definite resolutions for next year. This year, I've done quite a bit of 'spring cleaning' so to speak, and I feel ready to start the new year with a clean slate. I won't jinx them by writing about them - no grand schemes or big plans or anything like that, but small things I hope will make a difference and result in more art or creative things being done. 'Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans' as they say, so we'll see how it goes. Being realistic is one of my goals so I'm prepared for that too!
