Quilts and Lace

Hello Everyone, sorry it has been such a long time since I posted anything but I have been busy trying to finish off these two quilts as they are christmas pressy's. I have also been shopping quite a lot but I have now more or less finished Christmas shopping. I have also been busy making things for my daughter whose baby is due on 3rd January, I have made bunting for the nursery and lovely cushions and other things too. We are all looking forward to this precious baby and I will be glad when it is all over and I can stop worrying about everything, I am sure you Mums out there know what I am talking about.



















This is my first effort at colouring Lace, I used very watered down acrylic paints and then sealed the colour with a hot iron, it was fun to do and I enjoyed it I will have another go at this..

Kathleen and I have been shopping quite a lot, she is off on another cruise with her son and daughter-in-law and grandaughter they are off around the canary islands this time, she is looking forward to the dressing up part and she has bought some new things to wear.

I have my family coming for Christmas so I am busy planning everything for their stay, it is such a lovely time.

I am off now to wash all my china and then return it to the shelves so that it is shiny for christmas I also have mince pies to make for my mother and father in law, I expect you are all busy too.
