Swirling Around

I spent the night on New Year's Eve with Carrie, Samantha, Miranda & Charlotte - I've really missed those gals. Sandra gave me the movie as soon as it was released on DVD, but I didn't get around to watching it until now. I love a happy ending.

I've been anxious to try out my Circle Lord Swirls template so used it on the Quilt of Valour. It was so easy to use and I love the results. The hardest part of the whole process was getting a good picture.

The picture on the right is the truest to colour - the backing is red - not pink or orange as it looks in the picture.

This quilt is supposed to go to Sudbury now to have the binding sewn on, but I have contacted the volunteer there to see if she would mind if I attached it as it seems like a waste of money to mail it up there, then have to mail it again to it's final destination. It's a large quilt and it isn't light.

I spent some time last night cutting out some applique shapes for this tablerunner.

Yes, I know it's a Christmas runner, but I have a resolution to keep remember! I'm hoping that if anyone who reads my blog ends up as the recipient of one of my gifts, they will have as bad a memory as I do and won't remember seeing it before.

That circle pattern really complements the patchwork design...lovely.

I am a long time fan of SATC and am looking forward to seeing this movie. I was sorry to see the series end.
