Off to a good start.

I have got off to a flying start this year but it will be very interesting to see how long it lasts.
This tablerunner I was going to have ready for last christmas but alas that didin't happen, did all the hand work but time got the better of me and the quilting/binding had to wait but I am early for this year I guess. This is a pattern from "Faeries in My Garden" called "Sugar Plum" christmas tablerunner as part of the "Gift on the Month" club, I need to get a move on as it won't be long before this years projects start to roll in and I'm already behind so wish me luck that I am able to catch up with last years projects ...... and the year before projects..... oops shouldn't admit that really.

Such beautiful fabric and very unusual colours for christmas but I love them.

This can be my first OPAM too, woohooooo.

I've also caught up with the Lynette Anderson  BOM "My Garden" its a great little project, not too many to go now.

I'm still working on my embroidery BOM from..... yes you guessed it..... "Faeries in My Garden" called "Blossom Lane" this is block 5 so only 4 more to go. This block has to have beading and lace added yet as do the other blocks I've done but I thought I'd do it when all blocks are embroidered. I'm really looking forward to finishing this quilt, once I've passed halfway with a project I tend to get excited that the end is near so I'm off now to prepare the next one. Don't know what happened but this photo seems and odd colour, looks better in real life.
