Granny square Finish

Hello all hope the start of the week is not too stressful for you all.  I finished my granny squares quilt over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you.  My only regret with this quilt is that I didn't make it bigger I am absolutely in love with it.  Hope you like it.

A Little Bit of Sunshine This Morning

Hello friends.  How is 2013 going for you?  Hope the snow has not been slowing you up too much.  Last friday we got 1 inch of snow on Guernsey and what chaos followed you would not believe.  If I had been able to sit and watch I would have been quite entertained but having children to get to school and shopping to do I had to join in the mayhem.  Thank goodness it has gone now.
I have been engrossed in my work and have found it difficult to come away for my sewing machine.  I love when this happens the hours just fly by.
I wanted to share one of my latest quilts with you and hope it fills your screen with sunshine.
Happy Wednesday.

Goals for 2013

Happy New Year everyone I hope it proves to being a healthy and creative one for us all.  I just love the New Year I think even better than Christmas.  Maybe thats the Scot in me I was brought up in a house hold where I was told often how the Scots had to work on Christmas as a day like any other until not that long ago. New Year was a time to celebrate.  Some stay up for the bells and have a jolly old time but for me I get up early so as not to miss a moment of the New Year.  I enjoy the quiet and thinking time.  My creative juices are flowing with ideas and projects I want to have a go at in 2013.  Number one on the list is to get to work on my double irish chain.  I finally unpacked it last night and have put in a couple of hours, boy do my fingers hurt after not quilting by hand in a few months.  I struggle to get a flow with it, having to pick it up and put away as and when I can fit it in around my business sewing and the sheer size of the task has me wondering if I will ever finnish it.
What's your 2013 creative goals?
