Finally December is done!!!!

I really thought when I decided to start in January I’d be able to catch up quickly. Boy did I get that wrong!!!! As you all already know, there’s a lot of work in this quilt. :-)

Anyway, I have put in a lot of work & I’m really enjoying it, so it’s all good.
I’ve had a lot of stress in my life lately, with no relief in sight, so this project has almost kept me sane!!!!

Being OCD I love to have all my fabrics organised. I cut a bunch of squares so I had a stash. I’m hand piecing all the little sections that go between the blocks as I love to hand piece. I did machine on the long strips just so I could something finished!!!! I have already started on the January & February blocks, so hopefully I might catch up by the end of next month!!!

My fabric is from the Ruby range with a few Bliss & some other bits & bobs from my stash. I’ve had the most trouble finding the neutrals, luckily I had some, as they are a bit thin underfoot in the shops.

Sorry I haven’t been blogging lately but life has been shite!!!!! & if Istarted sharing what’s been happening I’d spoil my blog. I like to look at it to motivate me rather than remind me of the crap in my life. It won’t stop me having a whinge every so often but I’d rather not think about this stuff if I can help it. Hopefully normal service will be resumed soon!!!!

So sorry for your "troubles" and hope things get better soon. As you say, our sewing keeps us sane!
