Christmas Planning

Started my mental list of what I want to make, I have got some lovely new material so was wondering about some Christmas bunting? I wondered whether it would look Christmas-y enough?

The second thing is my Christmas present, I have seen the machine I really, really, really want, have mentioned it and not had a "of course you can have it" yet ?? Should I mention it again

It is so beautiful and the stitches are lovely....

Where have a I been

I'm not quite sure either, I seem to have been on a cycle of trying to do my physio, then having huge pain flare ups, pelvic aches and resting up to try all over again. Not sure where it will end (apart from failing when i go back to physio on Tuesday - they do mark you right?)

On another much happier note the quilt top is nearly sewn  together, It was started in July and should be done for December. Ready for the family to snuggle under over Christmas.

Apple butter

Heard someone in the states and decided to investigate, it turns out to be an amazingly concentrated apple jam and as we had the last glut of apples to use up I made some. Going to put some onto some warm pancakes, had a little taste and it is lovely. The picture is refusing to rotate but I'm sure you get the idea!
