Hi I'm Lyndsey and today I'm joining in with Quilting Gallery's Beat the winter blues blog hop party. This winter has been very wet and cold with some snow here in London. It has been so wet in fact that the Thames was up over its banks in Richmond. The ducks seemed to like it.
There was snow and I got to have a 'snow day' at home and play with my sewing machine. I hope there is snow next year.
We had some beautiful sunsets and sunrises
Of course in the midst of all this weather I had to keep my spirits up and this meant playing with fabric. I tried to keep up to date with the Votes for Women blocks at Grandmothers choice. These were my first 6 blocks as I realise I haven't posted any photos of the blocks for ages.
I worked on my Dresden plate quilt and finally finishing it in February.
I took part in blog hops such as the holiday lane pillow hop. This was such a fun pillow to make.
Of course there was Christmas to enjoy with family and friends
and new jumpers were needed to keep warm
I love winter because it's a perfect time to stay home and sew. It turns out I'm not suffering with the winter blues so to celebrate I'm having a give away. Would you like the chance to win this cute fat quarter?
This give away is now closed
Everyone needs a cat to help with their quilting don't they?
To have a chance to win simply leave me a comment telling me what's the best thing about winter. I will ship internationally. You don't have to be a follower to take part but if you would like to follow my blog I love having lots of friends. The give away will remain open until midnight on March 15th.
Now remember to go over to Quilting Gallery to see who else is taking part. To get there click here or on the name quilting gallery above or use the button on the side bar. Remember this is a blog hop with give aways. Good luck.
I hope you have a great weekend.
