It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I cannot believe how fast this year has gone and in just a few short weeks, we will be welcoming our first precious little grandchild into our family.  We are on the home stretch now and I CANNOT wait!

I have finished the first quilt, something to take to the hospital to use straight away.

It is hand quilted and I even did a little appliqué on the back.  

I have finished my tulip quilt.  

I have also finished the next frame of Hertfordshire, 48 little hexagons.  I miss doing them now they are all done......

I have also made a little bit more progress on St Neots, finishing all the hexagons.  I think I will tackle the appliqué that runs across the top of the quilt next.

I'm off to CAG tomorrow so I'm sure I will have lots of Show & Tell pics to show next post.  I have started playing with Instagram, I am loving it.  If you want, you can follow me on there.  Just click on the button on my sidebar.

One final thing, I have prepared this post on my iPad using the Blogger app, so fingers crossed it works ok????

You make me think I really ought to start my St Neot. Got the pattern for more than 1 year on a shelve - shame on me -

Heartful thoughts from my little corner :)

Your work as always is exquisite to look at and your Hertfordshire is beautiful. My conscience is being pricked several times over as there are at least two projects of mine that need attention. You are going to be a fabulous Granny.xx

I peeked at Instagram (which I do not belong to yet so I couldn't leave a comment). Little Evie Lucy is absolutely darling. I hope all went well in every way for mother and child and everyone else. What a Christmas to remember!

Take care,

Hellooooo, dear Sue Ann!
Long time no see, huh ? :))
Which doesn't mean I'm not following you, through Bloglovin, HaHa...
Actually I'm just about ordering the St Neot Band Sampler, but I just would like to know the size of the hexagons for the flowers. (3/4 inch maybe ???) Thanks for helping me in this matter, dear.

Big (((HUGS))) and XOXOXO
