Quilting, I haven't forgotten You

I've been so busy knitting lately, I've lost any time and a bit of mojo for quilting. Every now and then, I go and lovingly stroke my (embarrasingly large) stash of fabrics. This week, as it's half term, me and a few teenage girls went shopping (no, I was the driver, not the old one pretending to be young), although I have to say I would not revisit the ages between 13 and 20 for all the tea in China, it was a miserable time for me.

Anyway, back to my story. On the way to shopping we passed Maggie's shop. Rude not to go in, I thought. Once you're in there, I defy anyone not to buy something. Here's my purchases
This..

and this..

oh, and these..

The way she puts them together just makes them look like something special. I am determined to make something before Christmas.

Talking of Christmas, and just when you thought it was ages away, look what I found...

Christmas SOON
Muwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!

PS Excuse my awful photos at the moment. It really is winter here now and the light is not at all conducive too taking good pictures.

It all looks so gorgeous, Liz, but if you hate sewing then it all becomes a bit of a no-go area.

Why do I hate sewing so much? Who knows and who cares. Love to see your sewing accomplishments though, you clever lady! (I've been using your sooperdooper stitchmarkers already, btw!)
