I didn't realise until I started posting my quilts here just how many Christmas items I really have! This is years and years old, and truth be told it's a little embarrassing at how simple it is. I seem to aim for much more complicated quilts now (Dear Jane, anyone??) which may or may not be a good thing, I have yet to work that out.
This was a Debbie Mumme panel and fabrics, stitched together into a simple nine patch, appliqued on a bit, stitched on a bit and it's done.
As I said, not something I would make these days. But we all start somewhere, don't we?
Debbie Mumme featured a lot in my early quilting career. I do love her rich choice of colours, but the panels now are a little passe, I think.
I should be at the computer tomorrow with loads of new photos to show you, and hopefully a little bit of stitching to share. It's been so long since I stitched anything, and I really am feeling itchy fingers at the lack of it.
A day without stitching is a restless day, I find. I like to finish the day off with half an hour or so of quiet, reflective craftwork, whatever form it takes.
I do miss it at the moment.
