Merry Christmas

I do hope all my readers of this blog are having a great Christmas especially my recent readers from Poland and Latvia. Welcome! I am having a very quiet and peaceful one. Our family is very widely spread so this year instead of traveling we have stayed at home. We are very cosy with our log fire and have ventured out only to go to Church and to take the dogs for their walks, and also to feed the birds.

Mystery Button Club quilt

I have done very little sewing, though I did finish quilting my mystery button club quilt designed by +Lynette Anderson.  I am very pleased with it, though looking very closely at this photo of it, I see the squirrel button is on the wander, or is he chasing the bee?

We are only having cold meat and pickles today for lunch, so not a lot of cooking to be done. I hope to get on with sewing some more of these tiny log cabin blocks. I have not made log cabin blocks for over 20 years, but this is to be a quilt for my youngest son who loves log cabin Quilts. I must say they are fun to make, forgotten how easy they are, though I have given myself a task as I am making them very small (9" finished size) so I have to make 80 something to get anywhere near a good size quilt. 

The start of my log cabin blocks

I started writing this blog the 30th July 2012 and written 39 posts in all. It has been viewed 1,962 times from people as far away as Venezuela, China and Russia and of course Europe. Out of all those viewings only 31 have commented. Please, when you stop by, say hello.

Merry Christmas to you all.

keep safe and keep stitching...........Doti.. 


  1. Sounds like a relaxing time Doti.... We had 3 manic days but are now in Post Christmas Slump.... Well I am anyway... Better get to my machine & cheer myself up with some sewing... Might even get my Button Club going yours has inspired me.... Are your log cabin blocks on a foundation?

  2. Happy New Year Teresa , No the log cabin blocks are not on foundation, the centre square is 1 1/2 inches and the strips are also 1 1/2 inches wide, I am so enjoying making them....Doti
