Christmas is almost upon us again, comes around fast these days don't you think?
I remember when I was a little one it would take forever for Santa to visit now it feels like just a few months ago he came and enjoyed the cookies and milk while Rudolf munched on these.
On the home front we have been decorating the tree, making playdoh, visiting Santa, enjoying Christmas playgroup parties, spending time with friends and generally just trying to keep up.
Life's exhausting isn't it?
Decorating with a little one who prefers the fine art of un-decorating has been fun although worth it when she brings me a star off the tree while I am up to my elbows in dish water and sings 'twinkle twinkle little star' while holding it carefully above her head. There is nothing better.
Except maybe dress up day and the joy of playing inside the tree box.
On the design front....
Cinderberry wise - the studio has been buzzing with new ideas I have for 2011
I think it's going to be a big year.
So while my mind is already working on things for 2011/12 I will show you a snippet of the final works in progress for 2010, if you kept your eyes peeled in the photos from Quilt Market this won't be so much of a surprise.
You see, Bella Babushka is being quilted...
It began like this -
Once she is quilted and bound I will take some better pictures of the entire quilt and share them with you. It is very simple to make, basic applique, piecing and a little bit of stitchery which makes me smile.
and if you are wondering. Yes, she was inspired by Flat Nat.
