Christmas was good, but busy. Lots of visitors to our open house on Christmas Eve, then parents and children staying over the holiday. My DH's grandma used to say, 'God speed the parting guest' and I know what she meant! It's lovely to have a houseful, but also nice to get back to normal.
Once DS had gone back to London, I was able to get my sewing room back. I celebrated by making a feathered star. It's a Martha McClosky pattern I picked up from the Home and Garden Television site. I know it's really only pictures of the demonstration, but the instructions were a bit tricky to follow, especially when it came to assembling the block. 'Stitch each row together and complete' wasn't really enough for me - maybe I should have bought the book! Anyway, I'm pleased with the result, although I still have to work out whether I want to make more to start another quilt, or whether the journey was sufficient.
Hope everyone has a good time today, and has a happy, healthy and productive 2008!
