This post falls into the unmatched category.
Fist the kitchen sink; literally. I arrived home from my first big post-op outing to these bucket full of roses from DH. The outing was quilting Christmas Lunch. After all a girl needs to get her priorities right.
One bunch of the roses were traditional Red Roses. I set them next to the GC's Santa photo and a favourite red candle stick. The photo was taken 6 years ago . There are no babies in the family at present.
The mixed bunch add colour to the room. The lavender roses are very fragrant.
Second unmatched bit of information is. I have made a decision about the signature blocks.
Medallion Quilts have found a place in my quilting influences this year.
An inspiring lecture by Gwen Marston which emphasised having an open mind to your work as a quilter.
Beautiful quilts from the V&A exhibition which I was fortunate to see in Queensland earlier this year.
Both these books are wonderful resources for Medallion quilts old and new.
The last item from the kitchen sink is a reveal. Drum Roll... or at least a Ta Da.
My secret sewing for the annual Christmas Party.
This is a group I meet and stitch, chat, and well what ever several times a month.
A purchased sewing caddy.
Embellished with wool applique. All the pieces of felt were garments machine felted by me. The brighter colours are also from my dye pot.
I do love this time of year. Hope you are all enjoying your preparations for Christmas.
