Warm beds

On these chilly, snowy mornings, the temptation to stay in bed is great. Staying under the warm bedclothes, snuggled up with a quilt seems an excellent idea. Hibernation until the spring could be an option which needs thinking about carefully... some of us even wear a hat in bed, so important to keep the ears cosy too. But many parents find the children have climbed in to cuddle up together with them in the mornings and Louise, who has three little girls, kindly sent me this. There is just room for five in this bed under a big quilt and at the bottom is written Green Star Quilts! Thank you Louise, such a kind present.... 

This the quilt I have made for Louise's daughter Charlotte

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all of you who read my ramblings and my New Year resolution is to pay more attention to the blog. Things Have Slipped..... but before Christmas I made 150 star blocks for 3 quilts and that's my excuse.... Now we have a new start and on Monday we went for a walk along the riverside route to Bardney. It was the best sort of Lincolnshire day, huge blue skies and pale winter sun. Just enough to warm us whilst walking and give the promise of spring to come. This photo is of one of the sculptures on the route. It seemed to me that we stood in the old year, could walk through the arch and the new one would stretch ahead with lots of possibilities. For some 2012 has been a bumpy journey so lets hope 2013 will be a gentle stroll.
