Well today was the final row for the Row by Row, that we started back in March/April. And this was the final block we did this morning.

So I am hoping that towards the end of January we shall see some finished quilts!! Even if you were unable to attend all the workshops, it would still be nice to see what you managed to do.
Classes will start back on the 11th January.
All it leaves is for me to wish you a

Merry Christmas
A Happy New Year


I have always wondered what to do with Fabric Panels and so I took the plunge and bought one from Patchmania recently, along with some according fabric. And here it is my attempt, for the headrest of our armchair.
I still have 3 of the house panels left to use up and I shall use them for cushions or unless I come up with something else. I hope my DH likes it!?
And today in class Madalena brought along 9 cushion covers she had made from a panel by Nancy Halversen, here are a couple.

Here are a couple of pictures of the Christmas Wreath that Maria and Madalena made, unfortunately I was not able to get a photo of Paula's, as she finished it in another workshop.
And I even did one of these for myself, which is in pride of place on our dinning room table. Thanks Angela for the idea.
And I had brought a Nativity Scene from my trip to Barcelona, for Sara and I to do. I do have one going back a few years!! that I have promised Sara if we start it in January 2012, we should be able to finish in time for Xmas 2012, because there are quite a few people and animals to do. But in the meantime we did this one together.
Tomorrow is our last class at Arco Iris before Christmas and then we shall start back on 11th January. Check their calendar for the dates and times. More information as to the type of workshop that will be running will be added in due course.
