Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you had a lovely day. I enjoyed a relaxing and fun day with my family. My boys have been happily playing with their toys all day. One of my boys just adores Thomas the tank engine and loves watching home videos of children playing with Thomas trains. To make his day special, his Uncle helped him make his own quick little movie. Jack's Trains
For the rest of the day I ate far too much and then spent the afternoon on the lounge playing with my laptop. While doing so I found and fell madly in love with this quilt by Amy Butler.
The free pattern can be found here Bloom Quilt and the fabric just happens to be on sale today here Fabric.com. The only thing stopping me from buying all the fabric is that I can't sew. Sigh. Perhaps I should look at getting lessons and make this for myself for my rapidly approaching 40th birthday.
I also like the following pattern from Amy Butler. For a complete list of her free pattern then go here.
I got a very special Christmas present from my Mum today. She bought me a lovely solid side board. However I am not allowed to paint it. So I am going to have to find some lovely bright items to sit on top. The sideboard does need a re-varnish so I will post photos soon.
Merry Christmas everyone and I hope everyone can sleep in tomorrow.
