Happy 2017 & Thank you

Hi all, many thanks for all my birthday cards what a surprise so many remembered, especially since I've been absent for so long. Things have been a manic this week, my fridge freezer gave up on Monday, so I've been trying to find a replacement, giving stuff out to neighbours & eating too much rather than binning it. Friday ,is when the new one arrives so muddling along at the moment. I will do some posts after that I'm away on Saturday for a birthday treat . Hope you all had a great holiday, Annx

Double Wedding Ring Quilt

This is my new quilt my biggest project it's double sided. Top is a double wedding ring design, the back has four  applique blocks. The bottom is scalloped though it doesn't show very well this took 6 month in the making  Ann


It's Christmas A Tableaux, some cards & cake

Hi, I wish you all a Happy Christmas & a wonderful 2016. Hopefully I'll be a better blogger next year. I've posted some of the cards I made for this year. Also I've made a few tableaux for close family, I saw the idea on Pinterest & needed to make them. I already had the die & wasn't sure what to do with it, until I saw the post on Pinterest.
Best wishes to all Annx
