Another finish and a new project

Yesterday I finished off making 2 Christmas folders, too late for Christmas but now ready for next Christmas.   This is the  pattern designed by Fee, and made available by her at the Among the Gum Trees last year.

The stitcheries were completed weeks ago, and it took only a short time to make the folder covers.  I have put inside them the baking shopping list which was provided, and throughout the year I will put in some favourite recipes as well. 

Today is the start of "back to normal" after the holiday time, with the arrival of 2 Grandsons to be minded for a few hours.  As well it is the start of a new project This is a quilt for my oldest Grandson who is an avid collector and player of Transformers.  I bought some transformer panels and am working out measurements and colours to make him a quilt.
Shame - a trip to the patchwork shop is iminent - to buy some backing fabric and....... there is sure to be something else which will catch my eye while there.
