A very happy New Year to everyone! Apologies for my absence. We have been backwards & forwards to the farm, where there is no internet connection. Just popping in to say a quick hello & let you know I am still in the land of the living! I hope you have had special times with family & friends over the festive break. Thought I'd share my favourite Christmas gift with you:
A gorgeous 'Aviary' layer cake by 3 Sisters ... ... and a layer cake pattern book by Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures. Ooooh, noice! This gift was from my husband's family, & expertly chosen by my lovely sister-in-law. I am thinking I will make the layer cake up using the 'Vintage Diamonds' pattern from the book. Should be very soft & antique-y. Or perhaps this lovely, lovely thing?! The pattern for this quilt is free on the Moda site, here. And so another year of fabric love, creating, scheming & dreaming begins!
