Back again ...

Hi all,
Well, the flow of posts on this blog have diminished quite a bit lately... probably because X-mas is getting close, and everybody is busy getting everything ready. I know that has been my reason! :-D ... I had a few X-mas projects to finish, decorating of the house, presents to buy (& create), cookies to bake ...the list was long! ... BUT ... now I am done ... I am ready for Xmas, and I can again indulge in my favorite project: the hexagon quilt!!! :-D
I got 5 rows all sewn together, the 6th row is ready ... just one missing!
Here it is ... my dining room table isn't wide enough to show all !
I am really happy with it ... just missing a lot of embroidery!

I also bought the fabric for the back ... just as colourful as the top is going to be:
So I hope that in January I will be ready for the daunting task of adding the white border, putting the parts together, and start quilting ... by hand ... that is going to take some time! :-D

I wish you all a wonderful X-mas!

Holiday greetings from,
Lis
