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:
- 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.
- 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!
