It has taken me longer to get back here than I thought. Each year I seem to under estimate how busy life is going to get for me with working in the hospitality industry. No matter how well organised I am something always crops up to steal my time. This year has been no different although all of my shopping and wrapping was done nice and early. I just have the fresh food shopping to do on Christmas Eve and some baking to do today and then I am done.
On the sewing front I have been working on the first block of A Woodland Christmas. This quilt features these adorable raccoons - Aren't they sweet?
I have also spent some time preparing some paper piecing so I can continue throughout 2014 with my Confetti Quilt. I have chosen some different Fig Tree ranges of fabric so my quilt will be done in pastels. This is one of my long term projects which I fit in between lots of others. I am hoping that 2014 will see at lest one or two of my long term projects finished - That would be really great if I can achieve it.
The pattern is by Focus On Quilts and is just gorgeous the little hexies are just 10mm (1cm) so they are tiny !
The house is finally decorated and we are all set for our 18 guests for lunch on Christmas Day. I will take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas.
I have a feeling that 2014 is going to be a great year, I do hope you join me then here at my little piece of cyber space.
Love and Hugs,
