Winter Light

All is calm...

Well, the New Year has seen quite a bit of snow and tomorrow, we are expecting severe cold with a risk of frostbite (minus 28 C wind chill is forecast).  Yet another winter storm is on its way on Sunday, so it will be a good day to stay indoors and keep warm...except for the fact that someone has to do the snow clearing and Mr C is still not mobile after his surgery in November.  Now where did I leave the snow shovel?

Welcome 2020

Well, Christmas came and went and somehow, I didn’t manage to get back here and post anything.  I hope you all had a lovely time and wish everyone a very happy New Year.  

My little Christmas project was finally finished on Saturday - in time for Twelfth Night, if not for Christmas - better late, than never.

This cushion cover has been in the planning stage since I bought this fabric more than two years ago. I got all the bits together - trimming, wadding for quilting, lining fabric, but never quite found the time to get started, even after I bought a cutting mat and wheel last summer.

I must say that I’m delighted with the end result and if any of you want to make your own version, the link to the pattern is here.
