Christmas Mini Update
I keep meaning to post this, but forgetting (started it yesterday, but was so tired in the evening I forgot to finish!) - it has been a super busy week, with lots of stuff on at school and home, culminating with a birthday trip to Chessington World of Adventures (theme park) with my newly 10 year old and two friends, yesterday. Today, I plan a nice, gentle day with lots of laundry and a bit of sewing, followed by an entire week off school. Much needed, especially as I have been offered work for a few hours each morning for the rest of the term (until Christmas).
Anyway, one of the things I hope to do today is finish quilting this mini - shouldn't be a problem, as all I have left to do is the coloured squares in the trees (which will have gold metallic stars) and the snow section. I did the sky background with silver metallic and the trees with a variegated green. None of it shows well in these photos, but I promise it is really quilted!
I know lots of us have to work in the week and get very little done as a consequence, but having had the chance to quilt and sew during the week for several years, I really miss it!
