Christmas Preparations

Yep, that's right, it's time for a little Christmas preparation, so today I am joining Sue of Quilt Times and Lesley The Cuddle Quilter, our host for today, for the Christmas Quilt Along!

I mentioned yesterday that I have actually done some sewing this week ...




Thanks to this book, I managed to piece this little beauty on Thursday evening after work. 

It took an hour, honestly, just an hour!

So my plan to day, in between a little baking, a little mums taxi duty, and a couple of visitors is to get at least 4 of these made ...

I have some quilting I must get done too ...  and I have more news on that to come too!

Those look great Trudi. I'll have to investigate the pattern for them I think.

Hey Trudi I have made a couple of these. They are really satisfying to do. I like your colour combo. Di xo

Very cute! Oh, I don't miss the Mom Taxi job at all. I think I was the only Mom who was happy to have my kids drive.
