I have signed up for a new 12 month club called "Santa's Village", a cross stitch version of BOM. Yes, I know, I already have more then enough projects on a go, and I am not really a cross stitcher, but when I saw this picture of the first month of a beautiful design by "Country Cottage Needlework" on Patchwork Rabbit site, I just could not resist. In my mind I can see a beautiful wall hanging ready for Christmas 2013.
You can find more details on their blog here .
Last week I saw this copy of Quiltmania Special on "I Sew Quilts" blog (thank you Sue for reminding me) and like Sue, I would like every one of the quilts in this issue! Well, actually, I already have one! One of the projects is "Scandinavian Christmas Hearts" by Northern Quilts and I made it last year, when they were running it as BOM.
It was very quiet when I visited today, with only half of the hall filled by trade stands, but with a good quilt exhibition.
I expect it will be busier tomorrow, when Kaffe Fassett visits the show.
I hope the word will get around and the show will be back next year, as we badly need a good quilt show in this part of the world.
