This is the view of the fairground and skating rink from our hotel window when two friends and I went to Glasgow the first weekend in December. We didn't attempt the rink or the rides. Feet firmly planted on the ground we shopped til we dropped, and had a great weekend.We started the journey with a lovely Gingerbread Latte at the airport.
I met up with my Aunt in Edinburgh on the Saturday, and was able to have a good old yarn. Started off having coffee, then stayed for lunch, and a good browse through John Lewis's fabric department. I made Auntie little coasters using a tut by Beth at Love Laugh Quilt. I managed to finish the Christmas Throw Quilts for my girls.
I got a calm day and took the three of them outside to photograph. Then a light breeze sprang up and The quilts were on the move. Well, I did the best I could. The first is my favourite. It was a Nancy Halverson panel, and I planned it out using Kaaren's Happy Scrappy Spring Quilt as my inspiration.
This started out as simply square in a square blocks which I kept making til I had enough for a quilt.
For this one I used a pattern called Steps and Stairs by The Fennel Shed, Buncrana, Co Donegal. I am going to finish this post now, as it has been a loooooong time in the writing. I hope to blog again before Christmas Day (which is in one week). If I don't get back to the computer I wish you all a very enjoyable Christmas and a Happy quilty New Year xxx.
