Thank you all so much for your support - I have been overwhelmed! I have tried to reply to everyone but some of your comments had "no-reply" so if I haven't thanked you personally THANK YOU!
A late Christmas present arrived this weekend
One that I had ordered for myself ;o)
And it is absolutely lovely.
I read it on Sunday afternoon and was delighted to realise that I was getting itchy fingers again so on Monday morning Dot dragged me outside to help tidy up the sewing room and I got busy cutting out the fabrics for this fabulous winter quilt.
The only problem now is that I can't find the sewing machine leads anywhere! I had my machine in the house in November when we were having lots of renovations done and I think the leads have been tidied away somewhere.
I may just have to borrow Dot's machine!
