Getting ready for the New Year

We had a lovely Christmas Day, just the two of us, the Mister and me. All our children (+2 beaus) came the day after which is called the Second Christmas Day.
Now wouldn't you like to live in the Netherlands just for that reason!
We played stupid games, had a row, ate a lot and had good fun: a real Christmas!

As Cille said: it is hard getting back to the sewing machine. Everyone's pace has slowed down and there are so many feelgood-films on telly (a waste of time I know, but still).

I'm planning to make 2 baby quilts for 2 dear friends. One baby is due half January, the other one in February/March. So I'd better get a move on, as I'm a slow worker.
One will be like this one and the other will have rainbow colours on one side and soft white and neutral colours (Bento boxes?) on the other (if I do make a doublesided quilt).

I'm also planning to start with two new project in blogland:
  1. Quokka Quilts will start a quilt along with free motion quilting and quilt as you go; you can join here.
    She also had a contest on her blog: can you make a great fat quarter bundle? Join here.
  2. And over at pinsandbobbins will start a great quilt along in January.

I'll be back in 2012 with some great news, which has absolutely nothing to do with quilting ...

Have a wonderful New Year's Eve and a GREAT START in 2012!


  1. Thanks for the shoutout Betty! :) Can't wait to hear your news!

  2. now get to it with the sewing or those babies will have no new quilts to keep them warm xx

  3. Funnily enough, I'm looking forward to getting back to the machine, just to make something for me rather than a pressie! Have a fab new year :o)

  4. Glad you had a great Christmas - even with the row!
