Christmas Middle Eastern style

The man himself and he was a very busy boy all night

Santas naughty helper, Fatima. She is our breakfast hostess

Commercialism at its best. These guys were selling goods at the Christmas market

Polar bears and snow made from wadding/batting

This photo is my favourite. I know it's not very clear but in the middle of all the Christmas cheer these two poor emirate gents were trying to have a quiet coffee!! The cute gingerbread house in the background
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all
Here's hoping 2014 is a good year for all of us

I was so surprised to see that you was in Oman. I'm living in Muscat, Oman and we have a very nice quilt group here.
I hope that you had a wonderful time.

Delilah - Lucy's Journey - Part 1

A fair while ago, when working through the Delilah patterns I thought "yeah... I might just make this".
After a quick brain storm with the Boss Lady/Mum, I decided why not! But it has to be different, we thought because we have no use for 2 quilts that look very similar. So, what could I do? That's when my eyes landed on my always growing stash of Liberty.
March arrived and so did our stock of templates, and off I went...
My, my, my Delilah.

You have brought me to a few firsts so I think some confessions need to me made.

1. I have never pieced a curve.

Nope...  No sir! Not one.
Curves have always scared me. I could never wrap my head around them but the Boss Lady...

She loves them!

I mean... she really LOVES them!

Or maybe she just loves cruel and unusual punishment like this block?!
Just an idea.

Delilah has been a test - I have learnt many new skills and it is definitely the most technical quilt I have taken on to date... but it's not hard! The templates are fantastic. I swear working with acrylic templates makes it quite challenging to go back to temp-plastic! These templates are ensuring my blocks come out correct, every time.
Month 5 brought us North Star. "Woo hoo. Straight lines!" I hear the masses cheer as they open their mail!
I knew it was time to start focusing on other colours other than pink and aqua. I tend to gravitate towards these two colours because they seem to go with everything to me... especially in the Liberty of London f…

A very lovely, Susan, e-mailed us her version of JKD Green Tea and Sweet Beans.

We love it!
She made it at a shop in USA called Sewing Party. Amazing!
