Welcome to the North Pole.

 I have been reading a blog by Christiane who lives in Nuremberg Germany, 
Perlen,Samt und Seidentaft for some time now and she recently started a SAL.

Well, I thought what a lovely idea and duly bought the book from Amazon.

Thinking that if I started now (Christiane started in October) by next Christmas I would have a lovely Christmas quilt to hang, or to gift...

Also thinking a lighter quilt was needed for our little cottage, I have picked from my stash a line called Snowbird by Edeta Sitar. A mixture of cotton fabrics and batiks, and some linen for the background. 

It was bought awhile ago when it first came out and has been waiting for just the right project to come along. Well I think this might be the perfect project for it.

I could not wait to start, so this is the first block, Sprinkles Ice Cream Shoppe though I called it Molly's Ice Cream Shoppe. 

When Molly my granddaughter was very little she saved her penny's to take me to an ice cream shop, she will probably have forgotten by now as she was very young.

I do think this fabric will be perfect for this project,very cold and chilly.

I do also have a finish. The cushion started in Lynne Edwards Class, and yep I am pleased, looks great on the old chair.

I did intend to make two but I need to catch up with the North Pole blocks :0)..

You can find Christiane's blog, in the blogs I follow on the right hand side. Do go and have a look.

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