International Quilt Day

At Haddiscoe Village Hall
Made lots of blocks for charity quilts, had stunningly good lunch, staggered home. By gum, I'm stiff today

Glasgow, City of Interesting Architecture and Appalling Driving

Buildings, as promised.. Terrible roads, lumpy and full of roadworks, and by gum, bad manners..
Show is fun, more images of quilts tomorrow, but here's HB with her Silver Prize Winner "Lava Flow"

And, more-or-less randomly, some buildings as seen this morning

Been Busy...

....finishing stuff to take to the Scottish Quilting Show in Glasgow, we travel next week and have been making new patterns, packing kits and fabric packs, and, of course, finishing quilts. Packed this morning to go off for the competitions, and I'm not going to show the whole of mine, however, the cat has been helping...

I think she really likes this one...

Redemption

Now, the Christmas story is a most powerful meme - the concept of a helpless god, and of forgiveness..
We went to a concert on Saturday, at Snape Maltings - Cara Dillon and her lovely band made a most delightful and sincere show, beautifully on-concept and staged with perfection..
And on the way back, trying not to cough (I really did not want to cough!) I thought about the power of this story, and what we can and should read into it, Christian or no...

And today, because we really don't do all that eating-and-drinking-to-a-stupor thing, or decorations, or dreadful TV, I redeemed my workroom at home.. Most people never see this little space, and sometimes I just shut the door on it for a few days, ignore the chaos. Sometimes it's a sanctuary, too, a gentle place to spend time with the radio and my thoughts..
So, Before






And After...






And I found no end of nice projects to play with, treasures in corners, and trash...

OCP for December

The cat, having tried fruitlessly to sleep on the newel post for the last few nights, found a new bed...

Other creatures ideas of comfort, are not our own..
Happy Winter-Festival-of-your-Choice, and a merry and perhaps a bit less stressful New Year

Love and Blessings
