Lots of pics to show, it's a while ago since I blogged, times were hard, missing DH so much during these days.
The first pic is of the Christmas table, DD and her family came on Christmasday. Nothing special for food, but a festive table is always something nice to sit on. In the back you can see my youngest grandson has had a creative moment with the wallpaper. Christmas was quiet as will be the end of the year.
The second pic is my first attempt to snowpaint (a colander in a bucket, fabric in the colander, a big pile of snow on the fabric and paint on top of it, waiting for the snow to melt, drying and ironing the fabric to fixate the paint and a lot of rincing). As there was a big pile of snow and I had an old bedsheet, I tried to make some 'personalised' fabric. You can't see it very well in the pics, the blue/green/yellow fabric is the best, the red/orange/yellow was the first attempt and is less interesting. I used ordinary acrylic paint, which I use for my paintings, I should go search on the internet what paint is right for it.
The little turtle is filled with cherrypits, it can go into the microwave and the warmth is so lovely for little pains.
I did some work on the hexagons, have another pile waiting to join these ones. And a lot of little pieces of fabric to make into new flowers.
Stein has a second fish for his quilttop, the third one, a red fish, is in the making.
I also managed to finish the Lizzie Kate SAL, I want to make ornaments from them, so I can exchange them each month.
These last days of the year will be spent quilting, I'm way behind with my homework!
