November 2016


The days are rapidly going!!! November is already here and I am thinking about all the things I need to do for Christmas….


I am a great list maker, I have the list of things I need to make before Christmas – mostly presents but also a couple of teaching bits and one birthday present. Then there is the list of people I give presents to, which also has present ideas written next to the name! Then there is the shopping list – both Christmas presents and then also the food list!!!


As things get completed or bought then they get ticked off the list. It’s great to see lots of red ticks.


Ticked off the list for October was completing the ‘Winter Warmer’ quilt and writing all the handouts, this is the project that I will be demonstrating over the rest of the term. I designed it as a Winter quilt not a Christmas one, as I wanted to be able to use it for a few months not just over Christmas! But it would be very easy to give it a more Christmas feel with different fabrics and adding a few embellishments and the I will be creating is a more Christmas themed and alternative layout version in the classes – using silver grey and purple fabrics.


remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
