Well I am finally getting some sewing done, I have been doing this advent calender at home watching the tele at night - I have to have something to do or I got to sleep and miss the most important part of whatever I am watching!

I also enjoy hand quilting and beading so it is quite theraputic really

Now for the Quilt Along that Angela and I started about four weeks ago - I am behind due to the hugely excessive amounts of holiday that I have taken - if you speak to Barbara she will tell you that I always on holiday!!!

Anyway here are all my blocks put together with a small border it is lovely and such an easy pattern to make just out of a jelly roll plus borders.

Now I have gone silly and decided to do fancy borders so have cut up a layer cake to make the borders

Here they are being chain stitched and hopefully by later today they might be ready to get put on the sides of the quilt - I think it is going to look lovely and I am pleased. So another quilt to back and quilt oh well what fun - I do love doing this!!


  1. I agree with Barbara you have far too much holiday. We may need to review the holiday policy :-)

    The advent calendar is lovely and bright. Your quilt is going to be really special with that border.

  2. Really lovely ,you deserve your holidays tell em lol Jan xx
