Good Wishes for 2013

I thought it was high time I checked in to wish all my followers and readers much good health, happiness and sewing in 2013
Lucky for me I am still on holidays , I haven't really picked up a needle for the past couple of weeks so today I am indulging in a little sewing time.

I need to complete the centre on my sheet, I have been stalling for far too long. I find that if I am not happy with something I tend to put it down, it just becomes too hard to move on, anyway I took it to class just prior to Christmas and got Marg to give me a hand so this is my task today, I have a had a talk to myself , I cannot return to class without this being completed.

I have been doing a couple of other things in between , I have made this whirligig quilt that was a Brigitte Giblin pattern published in an past Quilters Companion magazine.

I had cut this quilt out many moons ago, I was going to machine piece it but after trialling one block I put it aside as I wasn't keen on that method. I needed a little hand piecing project that didn't require too much brain power so out this came again, after adding a few more current fabrics to it I became hooked. I just need to add the final border with is scrappy diamonds alternated with a white one. I am happy with the way it has turned out, nice and fresh looking.
I must go and get on with my ' today ' task so I will have something to show you very soon.

I hope you are enjoying or have enjoyed your holiday.

Until next time
Happy Sewing
