I cannot believe that I have blogged for 365 days in a row, but I have. When I first decided to join Cricket's blog challenge, I thought I must be crazy and I didn't want to be crazy alone, so I invited Jennifer Houlden into the challenge as well. I think we have both kept each other on track.

Santa Sack for Thomas

Posted by Ruth on 29 October 2013 | 0 Comments

For some time now my daughter has been asking me if I was going to make Thomas, my grandson a Christmas sack. Even though this Christmas is his second, we were all surprised when he arrived last Christmas eve. Of course, no time to make a Christmas sack! So this year I made him a special sack.

Hand Dyed Fabrics

I had a call from a friend who was clearing out her sewing room. She had some hand dyed fabrics and wanted to know if I could use them. I love hand dyed fabrics, probably because I do not dye fabrics myself or maybe just because the colors are not interrupted with designs. Whatever my reason, I said "yes, I can put them to use".

I love receiving new fabrics, I'm sure you do too. This week I received some of the newest Hoffman Fabrics. There were so many to choose from, but I couldn't get them all so had to settle on just a few.

Recently I have been working on a new pattern. The pattern is patchwork with a small amount of applique and celtic work, although the quilt would look really nice without the applique and celitic too.
