New Year and a New Start.

Christmas has come and gone and I do hope every one had a good family time, and are now ready to start the New Year.
2016, what will it hold for us all? Lots and lots of sewing and knitting for me I hope. I am not going to say I will finish off lots of UFO's like other years, and then carry the burden all through the year.
If I do get around to them, then thats good. If not thats good too!

2016 is going to be FUN

Our youngest two granddaughters made this gingerbread house for Mr M for Christmas. He was thrilled and is still munching his way through it. I love the sledge out front and the windows made with spun sugar..

November, I was the mama of the month and asked for Ollie Owl blocks. These are the first 12 made into a quilt top, and I have enough to make another top,.Not sure how I will put the next group together as yet, but I hope to finish two quilts for the Siblings Together Charity, which is very dear to my heart.

My next job however, is to make some wonky cross blocks for Sue who is the Mama for January. First to find some bright blue and mustard fabric in my stash suitable for a boy..

I have succumbed to the first temptation, but what a FUN one.

Guess who has a sale on and yes I could not resist Oakshott fabrics. You may remember the floral Appliqué quilt I finished last year. It was all made in Oakshott fabric and was wonderful to sew with.

On that note myself and Mr M wish every one a Happy and Fun filled 2016...

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