I'm really good at this blogging lark aren't I!

At the beginning of December I lost my voice for nearly 3 weeks, but I seem to have lost my blogging voice for much longer. I don't know why I have difficulty in keeping up to date with it, but I seem to all the same.

I think Instagram might have something to do with it. It's such a good tool for a quick status update and for keeping up to date with others too. Nonetheless I still do read all of my usual blogs that I follow. Maybe I build it up into a big deal, thinking it has to be a mammoth post when a small post works equally well. Anyhoo I'll get down too it.

Sewing update: I have made 3 quilts since my last post. I have just completed an apron order too. I have a quilt start today and I'm working on a personal king size quilt project. My hubby surprised me with a Janome Memory Craft Horizon 8200QC on Christmas morning. It was my dream machine and I love it so much, I will be writing a full review on it in the near future. I do want to get to know it better though before I do that. It didn't take me too long to get to grips with it, I think it's my IT background. I read the manual 2-3 times and watched the instructional DVD twice before I turned it on. Yep nerdy me.

I have also had some bunting orders and there are always some cushion orders in the mix.

I didn't do any Christmas fairs last year. I wasn't prepared as I was so busy in the run up to Christmas and I knew that health wise I wasn't up for standing all day in draughty stands.

So happy New Year to all, I'll be back again really soon and below is a selection of what I'm working on and what I've finished.

  1. Aren't you lucky with your sewing machine! I love what you've been making - especially Naoise's quilt and the lettering is beautiful. Maybe you could do a tutorial??:-)

  2. Enjoy playing with your new machine, I love the tractor cushion!

  3. I liked your catch-up via photos! You have some super gorgeous makes there! The place mats (mug rugs?) are just delish.

  4. Same here! Instagram keeps me from blogging as everyone has already seen what I did. but I do hope you blog more in the future so I got lots of background infos to read we are all to lazy to type on IG

  5. You are on fire producing so much. Don't know how you do it. And where do you get all these orders from?! I need to think about trying to sell stuff but the whole idea intimidates me.
