New Year, New Starts

"All You Need is Love" was such a fantastic concert - so many highlights.  Hope there is a concert next year.

I'm behind in making cot quilts for family and friends' new grandbabies.  Found "Next Up" cut out in a drawer in the sewing room, so it is ready to be quilted once the backing is made.  The little baby is almost 6 months old so the brighter "Later Alligator" fabric seems a good choice.

Last year I made a quilt called "Seaglass", designed by Susan Ache, a very talented quilter I follow on Instagram, from her book "Start with Strips".

A couple of days ago Susan posted a photo of a variation of this quilt design and, after visiting Karen to pick up some more fabric for the sashings,  I started it last night.  I have someone special in mind to give this quilt to and would like to have it finished for when I see her in April.  I need to make a little change to the smaller blocks before I go any further.

Plenty of other things I should be doing, like packing away Christmas - spent a few hours on Sunday taking down and packing decorations as well as half an hour or so after work each day this week, so that's a good start.

Hawks game tonight and meeting up with Eisteddfod friends tomorrow night before a big weekend.  Michael, Peta and Gulliver are moving down here, so I'm a tad excited.

Gosh, you must have masses of Christmas decorations if they take so long to put away! Doesn’t everything look different when Christmas is finally back in the boxes?
