La Passacaglia

I know I know I have that many projects on the go but I couldn't resist this one and I really....really...needed something entirely different to my usual quilts and colour palette.
So here goes :)
I have made a start on La Passacaglia Quilt on the cover of the book Millefiori Quilts by Willyne Hammerstein.
This is what I have come up with so far......what do you think :)


Same but reflection in the mirror :)

Merry Christmas and a Catchup

From Our House to Yours
Wishing you a Merry Christmas
A Happy and Safe New Year.

It's been such a long time since my last post or even finding the time to  read all of your posts, so first up hopefully in the  new year things will settle down and I will be back to my blogging and catching up with all my beautiful blogging friends.
 I have been enjoying the usual Christmas catch up with stitching friends, unfortunately I kept forgetting to take photos so much chatting and laughter. Here are a few that I did manage to remember to snap.




Looking forward to catching up in the new

Stitching with Friends

        Another great day spent stitching and catching up after a holiday break. Dawn Sew Much to Quilt   was back from her overseas trip and ready to dive back into our Yoko Saito Mystery Quilt. Unfortunately Sue couldn't join us as her mother has been very ill, Julia couldn't make it as her husband has also been unwell. We also missed Melody and Kaye. We are now starting on block 3. It did take quite awhile for Dawn and myself to get back into the swing of things so not much progress today...
Christine  MacDonald's Patch on the other hand was very productive working on a secret project , which is looking gorgeous.

So I thought it was time to bring it out and do something with it. The story so far ..clamshells :)

To see what the other FNWF have been up to over at Cheryll's blog, thank you Cheryll for hosting us once again.
