What happened to January?

I can't believe where January went....we had rain, snow, wind, then more rain...the fields are sodden and can take no more water......who ever would want to visit

This little rhyme is fitting for today is Candlemas Day.....02/02/2013

If Candlemas Day be dry and fair
There's half the winter to come and mair
If Candlemas Day be wet and foul
Then half o' winter was gone at yule......

More rain....

I'll let you know.....

Work wise, I've been kept busy with farm office work, getting the books ready for the Accountant and generally getting things back in order....there was a time when all of my paperwork was in order and I knew where to find all of my invoices and information. Now that I am at home more I hope to get back to that state of affairs....we'll see how that goes???

In between all of this tedious work I did a few customer quilts and drew out a couple of quilt patterns for my own future projects, I'm hoping to find time to make at least one quilt of my own this year, so here's hoping?

I've been blessed with some lovely quilts and new customers. Sometimes me living in the country can be a bit awkward for my customers especially if the weather isn't good even though we live on a tarmac road so it's handy for them to have me do a 'drop off and pick up service at my local quilt shop (LQS) which is  Borderland Fabrics in Jedburgh
Now that some of the quilts have been picked up or returned to customers I can start to show you what I've been working on.

The Happy Times panto is always a favorite it quilts out well and gives a lovely softly draping quilt.

This is Jenny's quilt made from fabric yardage but from a pattern taken from a 'jelly roll' book......

Doreen made this quilt for her Granddaughter to take to Uni, it's Doreen's first quilt but I'm sure it won't be her last.....
