I'm ready for Christmas!



It seems very strange to be making something for Christmas when it's a beautiful sunny day and the temperatures are in the high 20s..... but I am so glad I have finally done something.



EDIT*  I should have said the fabric is 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain and the blue surrounding the blocks is Flurry  also by Kate Spain........Love Kate Spain fabrics.

I took these blocks from different places, picking which ones I liked to make the quilt, I absolutely love it and can't wait to make another sampler quilt.

Starry Starry Night...

I haven't really been sewing much just bits here and there the next picture may explain why


It's been too hot to even sew and that is saying something, we aren't lucky enough to have air con in the house, in the car, yes, but French houses don't usually have it, we don't usually get as hot as this in our region. I am pleased to say it is much cooler now, it's cloudy and no sun, phew.

Last night I finished my second blocks for the Happy Quilting Quilt Along .  Melissa has given us different size blocks to choose from, but so far I have done mine all the same size - I know coward or what..... here are blocks one and two.




The stars are going to be wonky but I haven't received my 12.1/2" square ruler yet so for now you will have to just imagine them on a slant, just tilt your head to one side and you will get the picture... LOL.

I have also had a go at a Sewing Sampler which I thoroughly enjoyed, some of the stitches I haven't tried before so it was a good learning experience for me, one thing I did learn was I do not like sewing words!  At least not small ones anyway.



If you would like to have a go at this it it's a free pattern, yeah we all like free.

Here is the link  http://www.welovefrenchknots.com/free-patterns/  in fact there are quite a few free patterns on this site.

Pets on Quilts Show 2011

Hello my name is Sam



I live in France with my sister (who absolutely refuses to have her picture taken) and my Mum and Dad




I was an abandoned dog until my Mum and Dad adopted me that was nearly nine years ago, I think I am about 10 years old now.  I am totally spoilt (Mum told me to say that).  I had cancer last year but the vet removed the tumour and I have been right as rain ever since.




I wish Mum would hurry up I can't hold this position for much longer.....




Is that it, have you finished ...




Well I have had enough, think yourself lucky I have stayed still for this long.




Was that okay Mum, did I do everything right?

Hugs from Sam
