Finally I have realised why things become hectic this time of the year. It's not the Christmas shopping, decorating, makings gifts or extra baking, no it's my decision to cram in all the things I thought I might have liked to do over the past 12 months into the week before Christmas.
Like last Sunday going to the markets to look for tea cups to pot succulents in.
And deciding yesterday to make new hand towels for the kitchen plus extras as gifts for my girls.
So keeping with the theme of thinking I can fit everything in, the decison was made to start a new quilt. I'd convinced myself I would break with tradition and not make a red & white quilt this year but changed my mind late last night. Choosing the block was easy. The drunkards path block is my favourite. Minimal cutting and few seams. Just what I need Christmas Eve.
Before you start thinking, wow it's almost finished, what you see is what is made. I'm happy as the basics have been worked out, now it's just a matter of cutting and sewing.
Now if I can just get the presents wrapped, the baking and house work done there may be time to make more blocks - sounds a little too optimistic even for me!
Have a lovely Christmas
