Benjamin Biggs Block 12

Another BB block finished and the next one is being prepped. This block was an easy one but the next one has a lot more pieces!

School goes back next week, I can't say I'm looking forward to ironing shirts every day and being back on the school run, most of all I'll miss having my gorgeous 14 year old son at home!  I always love the summer holidays. I loved them when I was at school and I think that is part of the reason I enjoy them so much still, I remember exactly what it felt like to have all those weeks stretched out ahead to do whatever we feel like.  Sad to think it's over for another year.

Happy stitching,

Benjamin Biggs and Jacob's Ladder

Not a lot of sewing going on over Christmas and New Year but I have finished block 11 of Benjamin Biggs as well as another block finished of my Whigs Rose.

Today I laid out the strips of my Jacob's Ladder in order to sew them together.  I've had these
blocks for quite some time!

Lastly a picture of my Christmas entrance hall.

I am hoping to get a couple of quilts made over the next few months for 2 of my sons and I'd like to get back to Love Entwined sometime . Finally after 8 years of having all my quilting and sewing machine stuff in my bedroom I have a sewing room, I'm so delighted. The set up is pretty basic at present but I'm loving it!

Happy New Year for 2015 and happy sewing!
