Sorry it's been a while.

Hello everybody, sorry it has been a while since I posted but I have been busy finishing a quilt and making curtains and Christmas shopping and lots of other things too. All the shops are now decorated ready for the christmas season I really cannot believe it is that time of year again.
All our family will be with us this year so it will be a busy one I am going to soak my dried fruit in brandy overnight tonight so that I can make my christmas cakes, I always make one for my mother and father-in-law and Dad likes a tin of mince pies too. The weather her is awful today very damp but some flowers are still bravely putting on a show. I have just completed a baby quilt top I will post it soon I want to make another baby one as Kates future sister in law is having twins a boy and a girl they are due in December so I will have to get a move on. I am off now to make a quilt sandwich with my baby quilt, speak to you all soon.

Glad to hear from you, life has a habit of getting in the way of blogging and other things for me too. Set a place for me, I am coming to your house for cake and mince pies. Patricia

Your mention of Christmas cakes brings back memories of my dear aunt who made fruitcakes months ahead of Christmas and brushed them with brandy until time to give them as gifts. Yum!

I'm looking forward to seeing the twin baby quilts! I made flannel quilts for my Aussie quiltie sister's twin grandsons. They were colorful Rail Fence quilts and the inner border fabric on one quilt was the outer border fabric on the other - and vice versa. Very different in appearance, but alike enough to suit the boys.

It's good to see you back!

Hugs!
