2019 Wk 50 - Christmas nearly here!

I'm starting to feel a bit Christmassy - shopping nearly finished, food ordered for next Saturday, just one more pressie to make - no panic yet!!!

The first two Hexie flowers from the December swap have arrived here, and mine have been posted off

There is an advert on TV at the moment for a scary series starting soon.  I shan't be watching it, but I did get a subliminal glimpse of a patchwork something, so I got husband to video it and then play it back very slowly.  I think they may have been a number of Christmas Stockings - the first is a variety of Irish Chain, and the next one is Suffolk puffs / yoyos.  I do like the IC, its been a long time since I made one, is it time for another one (I cant do any more on the Janet Clare quilt I've started as I need more fabric - it's coming soon!!!)

Thinking out loud . . . Can you do a hexi flower Irish Chain?


And this is why I don't get much sewing done!

I think you kind of can, and even if it's not an Irish Chain, I rather like it!  Thinking low volume for the negative spaces


  1. Love your idea - but it makes me want to applique a giant spider in one corner! I'm glad that you look for quilts in what you are watching too - I'm sure that Christmas films must have rich pickings for quilt spotters!
    Well done for being so Christmas organised. It's a good feeling isn't it? Hope that the final making present goes well! xxx

  2. Tee hee, quite agree with Plum, I’m looking for the spider too!
    I’ve noticed a few quilts in films but haven’t been quick enough to film them, good idea! I’ll have to keep the camera handy in future!
