winter house

Firstly, I wish you all, my blogging friends, a very Merry Christmas!

I hope you are having a wonderful time and Christmas you have wished for.

It has been hectic, right up to the last minute. The fabric for my new curtains arrived just a few days before, and so I spent the weekend making them (with a couple of near misses, which happen when you rush things). But they are up and looking wonderful.

So is my new wall hanging, The Winter House.
(Pattern by Cowslip )

Although hanging up, it is not actually finished; only partly quilted so far, and yes, I know, you don't sew the binding on until you finish quilting. Also the grey blocks in the border - they should had been nine patch, but again, not enough time. I really wanted the wall hanging for my new dining area.

Despite all of that, it looks great. Buttons from Barbara Smith compliment the whole picture.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday season; I will come to see you soon!
