Final quilt of 2019: Finished, gifted and well received

Belated ‘Happy Christmas!’ to you! We have had a good time celebrating with family over the past few days and still have visits and family times to look forward to as we approach the new year.

Celebrating A First: One of my quilt patterns in Quilt Now magazine

I am so excited to be able to reveal the ‘Secret Sewing’ project I was busy working on through July and August. I submitted a quilt pattern to Quilt Now magazine way back in April 2019. To my surprise and delight the  pattern was accepted by Editor Bethany and her team. I was informed the quilt would be featured in issue 71 due to be published on 5th December.

It’s been a funny old week for me. My husband has been away for six nights on a business trip – to the Caribbean would you believe! He arrived home safely on Friday morning – it was -1ºC when his plane landed at Gatwick, the day before he’d flown out of Antigua after enjoying a swim in temperatures nearing 30ºC!

Seven days and six nights home alone…! I coped but I wouldn’t like to have to do it too often. For a start I struggle to eat properly when I’m on my own – so tempting to have a few slices of toast rather than preparing vegetables and
