Just a quick post to show some lovely presents that came to us in Hilly Town this Christmas. When the crafting bug hit me (after and absence of about 20 years) a couple of years ago the thing that set it off was quilting. I was longing to make quilts. Unfortunately I only ever made one quilt top, and that is all it is, just a top, no wadding or backing or anything like that. The main reason for this was the pins. I couldn't leave the quilting out because of my little ones and so a good half of my precious craft time was being used setting up. Fortunately I managed to teach myself to crochet and I am more than happy to carry on with that, but in the mean time my Mother in Law has become a quilting legend.
For Christmas my little girls received these beauties...
They are so lucky to have these to treasure, aren't they gorgeous? I have to say that I was very relieved when she told me she was making them because it took the pressure off me to produce their blankets in time for Christmas, I am now aiming for Easter.
Here is a little of the detail from the edge...
They really are fabulous.
The girls weren't the only ones to get lucky though, M in L arrived on Christmas Day with six little packages containing these..
Tomorrow the tree will come down and that is the end of Christmas for another year. I hope it was a peaceful and happy one for you all, I'm looking forward to hearing all about this year's adventures, crafty and otherwise, over the next twelve months.
