Before I went away for Christmas, I had one very big project that was almost finished but not quite. I was literally just a few hours short of finishing, but my time had to be duly spent elsewhere, namely wrapping presents and packing suitcases.
So when we came home I was eager to jump right back in as soon as I had completed sufficient amounts of laundry to get us through the next couple of days.
So this very big project is a quilt that I am making to feature in a magazine. (And yes I am very excited!) You can read all about it here http://www.quiltcandygirl.blogspot.com/2012/11/a-sneak-peak.html and if you don't have time to look at the link then here is a little sneaky peek picture of the quilt when it was a WIP.
I can't tell you how much I want to share a picture of the finished quilt, I am so happy to have it finished, and I think that the gorgeous Kaffe Fassett fabrics work even better than I could have hoped.
I do however have another little project that I can share with you. Not a quilt this time, but a little cross stitch for my baby, who is due to turn 1 in the next couple of weeks. I came across this pattern and knew that I had to sew it for him immediately.
And I have even colour photocopied it and made little invitations for his party. It's a great idea that I came across in this gorgeous book by a French author, along with the design.
Regular readers will know that I have been away for a while over Christmas and I would love to share with you just a few pictures of a wonderful place that I went to called Cateratas Du Iguazu, which is a series of spectacular waterfalls on the border with Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina.
The photos really don't do justice to what a wonderful place it is and if you ever get a chance to go there, take it with both hands, it's not to be missed!
My final finish was a scrapbook that my daughter (aged 3 1/2) and I put together all about our holiday. It's been a busy week choosing photos, printing, sticking, gluing and annotating. But it's finished, looking lovely and has been proudly taken to pre-school this morning.
I hope you have had a productive week too. What have you been working on and have you had any New Year finishes yet?
