Christmas fun - for some unknown reason I always make my own Christmas cards - they have been cross stitched, stamped and numerous other ways over the years I have been doing them and this year Ithought it would be a good way to use up some of those scraps of material that I have in my boxes - now I just have to make them into cards - also if I am to make all my cards as usual (which Angela feels I am absolutely loopy for so doing!) I need to pull my finger out and do some more and quickly!!

But I have enjoyed sitting playing with these and the suffolk puffs are lovely - actually I may just go to M & S and buy cards and keep all of these!!!

Aston Quilters are in month two of their Mystery Quilt and these are two of the components of the first block - there was quite alot of moaning at the size of the pieces but they are all secretly enjoying the challenge and I am sure that once the quilt is finished they will be well pleased with it.

I have actually put the first block together but I am not going to show that just yet - but it looks lovely!!!

Now I am about to start thinking about Christmas presents - it is getting far too close and I have not made any yet!!! oh well I guess a last minute rush is good for me!!!!!


  1. I agree with Angela... totally loopy! I do make one or two special ones but that's about it.

  2. Oh my gosh ,I do admire your enthusiasm ,and energy , Jan xx

  3. Your mad there's nothing wrong with M&S cards. As for christmas shopping well you can do mine if you like because I can't find the enthusiasm to do it. Why can't we be like hedgehogs and just curl up and go to sleep for the winter and wake up when it's all over?
