Square Lanterns

I've had a lot on my plate these last few days so to cheer myself up, I sewed a wallhanging with appliqued doll holding langterns. The hand embroidery was very soothing to do and I used some beautiful fabrics that I bought at a quilt fair. She's on Etsy.Square_lanterns The background is a warm cream but the scanner didn't play ball!!

What a week!

I was in bed but still awake when I heard my iron gate open and the next thing was that someone was trying to open the kitchen door - well my heart was going like the clappers and when I looked out from behind the curtain, there was no-one there but the gate was wide open. And a bike had been moved but probably the thieves were disturbed and fled empty handed. The next morning I found out that someone had tried to steal my neighbour's car and police were called. Now it's getting close to Christmas I suppose the thieves are extra busy looking for stuff they can raise money on.

I was going to do a Christmas Fair last night but snow had been forecast and the venue was out of town so I didn't go. So now I have all this stuff ready....

Lastly I went to my daughter's firm's launch party and was greeted at the door by 2 hunks dressed only in an apron - honestly I've never seen such perfectly formed rear ends in my life - like peaches!!! We drank champers all night and as I hadn't eaten when I got home I was a bit tiddly. Next thing I found myself on the bathroom floor - I'd passed out - got the bruises now.

Ho ho ho - life goes on!!

Getting in the Christmassy Spirit

Treestars Heartdots1_edited-1 This year I felt compelled to make something Christmassy - and normally I never do that - I don't even send cards any more although I did send e-cards last year but everyone was too scared of viruses that they never opened them.

Well here are my first mini Christmas quilts and they're on Etsy Housestars1 -  hohoho!!

Little Person

It's been ages since I posted here - I saw this mannequin and fell in love with it and fortunately they had another which they sold me. It's child size and I love the moveable wooden limbs with jointed fingers but missing the thumbs - but I don't mind, it's lovely. I have to give it (not sure if it's he or she) a name - I'd love to have your suggestions!!SSL20636
