Christmas is coming, and it's jumping!

This is a sneak preview for C, who lives in the middle of France,and she will leave next wednesday at 4 in the morning to take her train and join us for a quilting bee.
Hope jou'll like te blocks C!

Anne Marie made us a baekeofe last sunday for the last quilting bee of the year,whow, french women are really good cooks!

My first Christmas present of this year, a lovely tree ornament as a Chrismas card, and the envelloppe was beautiful too!


Michèle is working currently on a sampler, as well as a pine burrow, and both are awesome!














A sampler from 12 cm blocks, no directions.
The overall blue shade is pure hasard.






Sylvie is working on schoolhouses, 40 cm







And drumrolls please for the other Sylvie, who's experimenting with woolens.
You know her already as a serial knitter and as she will spend Chrismas in the Alps, se her sweater she's knitting on:
She creates her own models, but the Aran motiv was found in a Japanese book.
She will definitely steal the show in Megève.



I think i have found a Christmas gift that will enjoy each and every one, so stay tuned!
Will V in Paris, bright and sunny but freezing!

Will! What a lovely preview. Cannot wait for the rest. Thank you for the show and tell pictures. You must have such wonderful times together. It is so inspiring to see the works of you and your friends. Cold here too - and snowy. All the best, Una

Oh, my! Such a lovely "sampler" of photographs. The sweater has me in total awe! And the quilt blocks are so wonderful! Merry Christmas from Iowa, USA.

What a wonderful group of pictures. Everyone has been busy making beautiful quilts. I like the Pine Burr and the "blue" sampler which couldn't be more different. Merry Christmas!
