I'm upset. My present didn't arrive, I had asked for some Parisville fabric by Tula Pink. I think it must be hiding under the seat on your sleigh-could you check please?
I've checked under my seat but no luck...Maybe the elves couldn't find it, by the way were you a good girl this year?
I was a good girl this year... maybe you could send me some dottie fabric by RJR instead?
I'll get Mrs Claus to parcel it up as soon as she finishes sewing my new quilt! ho ho ho!
Do you think that possibly, Mrs Claus may have, by any chance taken....couldn't resist....
no no forget I asked.
Love you Santa!
Love Karen xo

Some amazing 'Fandango' flannel (gonna have to get me some more of that!), some 'Central Park' squares and a surprise package beautifully wrapped, which I don't/do want to open!
The second parcel was a quilt returned to me from Yvonne McKee - beautifully long arm quilted!
You'll have to wait to see this one on the Moda Bake Shop!

Look out for my Christmas Table Runner made with lovely Makower Uk Christmas fabrics.
The magazine as always has some fantastic photos, I'm afraid my poor photography skills do not do it justice here!
Christmas is fast approaching and the weeks are becoming more and more hectic. I've come to the conclusion that this is the norm for us - life is so fast, one week flows into the next. And isn't everyone in the same boat? Maybe I could slow this week down, anyone know where the brake is??

I want to share my 'Hippy Quilt' which I made in 2009, as part of a Patchwork and Quilting course I was doing at the time.
I had thought of making a quilt from old denims, but thought it would be too heavy. So I decide to use really bright fabrics and appliqued on some denim symbols that I associate with the 1960s:)
There are a wide variety of fabrics in this quilt even some I hand dyed in class. So this quilt always brings back memories of the course and new people I met:)Thanks for taking a look!
