How has your Christmas been?
I have been having a nice time embellishing my tea cosies.
In the past I have done all the hand sewing and then made up the tea cosy
But this time I made them up and then added the rest.
This way I can keep adding as much as I like........
Not sure if I'm finished yet.

I sold this quilt...
We hardly had time to get to know one another.
Sad and happy.
And I have been getting ready for Christmas:
putting up some decorations,
and making cards.
I drew them myself with my new fountain pen.
That's the one I did last year.
I bought the blank cards because I just love the recyclable envelopes.
Hmm what next?

Much has happened while I have been stitching away on this quilt.....
or so they tell me.
I have pinned my new quilt to an old quilt as I have not yet decided which way is up.
That is, I have not sewn on the hanging sleeve
so you can see the quilt behind it, almost.
This beautiful blue fabric is from old japanese futon covers.
It has a linen-like feel but has a really dense colour don't you think?

In spite of the many distractions
I have been peacefully stitching....
and I am almost done.
Not sure which way is up though.
I love these blues.
The fabric is from old (or not so old) japanese futon covers.

You know when you are doing the touristy thing,
trying to take photos, waiting for a clear shot
and someone always photobombs it?
Well, since I have been trying my hand at drawing and watercolour I welcome them!
I think a few people add context, don't you?
