Happy New Year to you all. I have not blogged for for ever as I lost interest and found other pastimes. I have decided that I will resume as this way I can keep a record of projects my daughter and I make. My daughter sewing????? Wonders will never cease! DD2 has never shown any interest in this art as she was more into acrylic and oil art. Last November she asked if I could buy her a sewing machine for her birthday. Of course... but I have to admit I was rather cautious when it came to buying this gift. Should I go all out and buy her a machine with all the bells or a reliable work horse? She came home from Uni so off we went to my local Bernina store. She made the choice at the end and talked me into buying her a Bernette. I was rather sceptical as I wanted a Bernina and not her little sister Bernette.

... and her first dress
She has also made a patchwork table runner and more.
I have been doing much more sewing these holidays and have taken a break from crocheting. I had been given a few packs of curtain samples years ago so have now produced a few quilts. I have only taken a photo of this one.
I have been reading some blogs that show the extreme cold in Europe as I sit here in the extreme heat. I send all of you in the freezing cold some warm sunshine.
