I know, I know....I said I wouldn't be back until September, but I could not miss out on some Christmas fun!! After all, it is my most favourite time to decorate:)

Sue over at Quilt Times is having a Christmas quilt-a-long, just to get us all ready, so go on over and join in the fun and see what everyone else is doing today.

I am very excited about this, because up until now, most of my quilts have been applique and very little pieced work. So a little while back, I admired a lovely quilt over here, made by the lovely Julie and before 24hrs were out, she had e-mailed me the pattern, which was her very own pattern!! How helpful was that?

Anyway, here goes.....I ordered some antiqued muslin and as I'm sure you can imagine, I have an endless supply of reds and I got to cutting!!

If you are looking a break and want to get in the spirit of Christmas and want to see the finished quilt, go to Julie's blog-Tattered Threads and Willing Hands (which I have linked for you above). Scroll down to her section for 'home tours' and click on her 'holiday home tour' just check out those amazing quilts-talent or what? Did you see the one that I am trying to make?

This is one of Cheri Payne's patterns (love them) that I have been working on using wool applique-such a delight to work with. I even taught myself feather stitch, from on-line. Oops, I don't think I have a photo of that yet!

Ok, that's all for now, not sure when I will get back today as EVERYONE is at home ........need I say anymore?

Why not join in the fun too,
Blessings, Shazy x
