From the castle a good view down to the village and a steam train from Swanage.
The weather remained grim, so as it was a day off there was only one thing to do - sew!
I intend to look forward so a new project for me is to make a fat quarter quilt. In the summer I won this book in a raffle and at the time said that I kept picking it up to read. It has a grid system for cutting out different sized squares from layers of fat quarters, some of which are re-cut into half or quarter square triangles. I used 7 fat quarters and so far I've made 6 x 8.5" blocks. Please excuse the picture which was taken this evening, though bad light all day wouldn't have been conducive for good photos. It was fun putting the various combinations together and happily sewing away while listening to the radio.
I haven't posted these before, so here are the Christmas postcards that I received before they get taken down when the decorations are dismantled this weekend.
As ever a wonderful selection of cards and so varied in techniques. This may have been the last swap for a while as I want to give postcard making a rest for a while and change to doing other things.
As its the first of the month, though a little late in the day I'm linking up with Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day here
