November 13 2013 Quilting Newsletter


Itís that time again, dear quilters, for me to stop by and say ďhelloĒ. It seems to me as if weíve missed out on about 3 months this year Ė itís gone so very fast. I guess thatís what happens when youíre very busy and not watching the calendar or the clock.

The Christmas season is upon us with all our retailers putting up their Christmas decorations in their stores. I always feel itís a little too soon (early November) for such stuff, but I guess I donít own a business where the Christmas season profit can make enough money for the business to continue for another 12 months.

I have always, where possible, made my Christmas gifts for family and friends. I need to say here that I only give hand crafted gifts to those who I know will genuinely appreciate the time and effort that goes into making them. Some of my family simply donít get craft or understand the significance of something made by hand. This year Iíve made some shadow embroidery hankies and even tatted or crocheted around the edges.

Not everyone likes to use a hanky, when tissues are available but I like to use them when thereís going to be tears!

Last week I posted an article with instructions for making Touchy Feely (Tactile Quilts) for dementia patients and those suffering from Alzheimerís disease. Hereís the link if youíre interested:
