Advent Blog-a-long–Day 3

Just sneaking in, well actually it past midnight but I am still up so that counts doesn’t it.

Today I went to my local quilt shops Christmas party, I was a bit unsure about going as I have not had any classes there since Lachie was born and rarely buy anything from there anymore but it always nice to go and see all the ladies. Two quilts that you can do in there classes next year caught my eye, one is Michele Yeo’s Giant Dahlia, the other is a from a book called “A path to a Civil War” I think this would look amazing with bright modern fabrics on a white background, kind of like how people have been doing the modern versions of Farmer Wife quilts. I would love to do one of them but as I am still only half way through my Dear Jane quilt, I don’t think I should start any major project like Farmers Wife. The one a saw today would be a lot more achievable as the blocks are 12” for the main part and 9” for the two board rows.

Well that is all from me tonight definitely time to go to bed but before I go today’s book was url

We only read about 1/3 of this book as it is quite a long story, but it was amazing to see Bastian taking it in compared to last year when we first got it (It was the theme of the Myer Windows last year)

You will have to wait for a photo of today’s Lego item as it is in Bastian’s room and I forgot to take a photo of it before he went to bed

I can see a giant Dahlia in Kaffe Fasset brights or something with a white background... let me know if you decide to do that one!

Sounds like you are having a fun Advent (apart from all the letter cutting).
