Well with the Equinox passed yesterday - in my view always a tipping point of the year - I have admitted defeat in clinging onto Summer and am embracing Winter !
And Winter means Christmas of course !
So on my desk tonight is a new stack of Nordic style fabrics in red, cream & neutral.
I am planning a Christmas quilt topper to go with a Nordic fleece throw I have for my bed.
I will start playing about with coming up with a design and set to cutting & stitching over the coming weeks !
Some of the fabrics are from my local quilt shop in the village - I do like to try to support these local family businesses if I can, but also what will be an Advent calender of Christmas stockings, cushion prints & some neutrals fabrics from John Lewis.
On Sunday, after a lovely Tapas lunch, whilst the menfolk headed to the Millennium Stadium to watch the rugby, Lynda & I were very content to be Rugby Widows in the shopping centre !
We had a happy three hours mooching round the shops - stroking lots of goodies in Paperchase, trying on some clothes and buying Christmas fabric in John Lewis !
Also on the desk are some other Christmas stash items - both freebies with magazines - looking forward to playing with them !
Hope you have a great crafty week !
