December 3 2013 Quilting Newsletter


My, those Wednesday mornings come around real fast! And I guess so does Christmas. Itís going to be quiet here this year Ė both my children are approximately 2,000 kms from us (north and south), so it will be Darby and Joan (both alone).

We will have our dear friends Di & John over to Christmas dinner, when we
endeavour to devour Diís leftovers from her Christmas Brunch with her family.

I must get the tree out and get it up, and decorate it Ė so at least it will feel like Christmas! We send a Christmas letter off to our friends and relatives and thatís all been done Ė so just sitting here twiddling my fingers! (Not really, Iím typing this newsletter!!).

There are a few Christmas break up parties to attend next week and then it will be pretty quiet for the next 6 weeks or so Ė a great opportunity to get busy and make a quilt top or two, tidy the sewing room and try some new needlework genre Iíve been keen to have a go with Ė Schwalm. Schwalm? You ask. Itís a German needlework genre that is just lovely, and Iíd like to give it a go. If youíre interested, Google Schwalm Embroidery and enjoy the ride!

Last week I reviewed another of the great Fons and Porter publications Ė this one, very close to my heart titled Batik Quilts from Leisure Arts. Hereís the review for your interest: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art182105.asp

There was no response to the question about making patriotic quilts for the children of Fallen Soldiers (on the forum) last week. If you have something to offer please make your way to the forum and join in the conversation. Hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43
