Last straight line/ dernière ligne droite

It feels like it, one last race and then I can relax… I have been busy working part-time, still managing the garden, designing quilts, cooking …. how the ladies do manage that rythme all the time ?? The next two quilts are coming along nicely, one couldn’t wait to pop out, hopefully I will finish them both by the end of January and then the quilting, always a bit daunting.

Until the next post have a wonderful and merry Christmas

Xmas cactus

C’est vraiment l’impression que j’ai, un dernier pas de course et après je peux me relaxer… J’ai été très occupée à travailler à mi-temps, m’occuper du jardin, créer de nouveaux patrons, cuisiner…. comment font les autres femmes pour gérer un rythme pareil tous les jours ?? Les deux prochains quilts avancent gentiment, il y en a un qui ne pouvait pas attendre, et avec un peu de chance les deux seront finis à fin janvier et puis le quilting, toujours un peu angoissant.

En attendant le prochain article passez un très joyeux Noël.

Not too many sleeps before Christmas ….. Here are the pictures of what has kept me busy for few nights, 6 weeks worth actually but I have loved doing the cauliflower and my friend who received it thought it came from my garden ( I wish!). It is from one of the Inspirations magazine ( I can find the number if you are interested)


I wish you all wherever you are a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year full of projects and laughters.

There is always one

there is always one

The winter seem to have settled. The streets glitters under the light with all that rain, the air is filled with the nice scent of wood fire and for me, coming from Switzerland, it feels like if Christmas is just around the corner

So for once I indulged and made a whimsy Christmas project for all the Christmas in July .

Nancy Halvorsen’s gorgeous range “Let it snow” was too tempting and the colours just what the doctor ordered.

Have fun and e-mail me some pictures of your version.

little news

Where did the autumn go ? Winter has come early and with it all the nice soups and stews. I have excuses not to go into the garden, too wet and too cold and stay inside and work on more projects. For us down under something for Christmas in July or just to be on time for Christmas. Also a nice little quilt (so far) in which we can use all those bits and pieces …. and it has been approved (the name of the expert is Olivia)

Spain was beautiful, full of life and colours and I have enough inspiration to make dozens of quilts(just need the time …. My garden was on the wild side when I came back so I have spent some time weeding and planting.  I also made few miniature quilts and Christmas ornaments, lots of fun.

And here is a little treat for you for Christmas ( not fattening !!).

Enjoy it and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
