Happy 2014 !! and ps a Happy Christmas too...

Happy New Year to all of my customers and readers of my blog...  I have been having a lovely break over the Christmas holidays with my family, after a very busy November/December trying to keep up with customer quilts and Christmas deadlines.  I admit I had rather overstretched myself with quilts this last couple of months and should have drawn the line a little earlier when promising Christmas finishes.  A couple of customers I had warned that it would be right up on the deadline, and it was...  the last pick up on Christmas Eve morning...  and as I am a glutton for punishment, I then quickly quilted a small gift quilt, which I gave to my Step Mother in Law for Christmas, made from Moda Vin du Jour fabric,  and I managed to squeeze in a small Christmas table runner with some seriously fast freehand quilting, although this was only 18" wide and didn't take long plus it was not bound until boxing day.

 I didn't manage to fit in the christmas stockings I had been hoping to make from a christmas fabric panel that I had managed to buy earlier in the year...  as part of a fat quarter bundle...  lol, but then there is always next year !  (along with the other two christmas themed quilts one I made last December, and one a couple of months ago !)

So, as far as my own quilting goes, it has all sat on the back burner, and I admit to have had a very lazy family Christmas holiday which just flew by and now we are all back to normal working.... I expect I will find time for it all eventually...  but for now I have lots of customer quilts for January to quilt and get back to their owners.

And after downloading my camera and ipod to my laptop, I now have tonnes of photographs to be shared on my blog very soon....

Here's to a happy and successful 2014 to us all....  so off I plod to my studio ....  hi ho, hi ho, its off to work I go !!!
