Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all been busy in a good seasonal way. My Sarah and I have been busy getting ready for our few quiet days of Christmas. We quietly celebrate Christmas here in my home. When Sarah was a wee lass we partied as much as we were allowed. Nowadays we enjoy the peace that the Christmas holidays bring us.

The year will soon be coming to an end. I seem to be giving way to daydreaming about all that I did during the past year. I’ve had ups and downs. I can say that on most days, I had something positive to write in my diary. After giving my accomplishments a bit of thought I have come to the conclusion that I need to take my creative life in a different direction. I’m working on a plan of action and my immediate thoughts are that I want to turn my crafting into a wonky naïve direction. I haven’t worked out exactly where that’s going to take me but I think it’s going to be fun making those plans. In the meantime, I need to step into my sewing room and take stock of what supplies I aim to use in my new crafting endeavour. There are miles of fabric and thread crying to be used. So, that’s my goal for 2019.

I finished all my Christmas crafting over the last few weeks. And although I’m itching to start a new project, I have controlled those urges to start something new and simply worked on my hexagons. Hexagons are always my to-go project when I’m in between projects. Slowly but surely my hexagon quilt top is growing. And while I work on this hexagon quilt top I’m thinking about everything I want to do in the new year.


It’s Christmas eve and everything I could do has been done. All the food for tomorrow’s dinner is waiting to be prepared. And all but one present has been wrapped. Even the new Christmas pyjamas are ready to be worn. The scented candles are lit, the wooden wicks are crackling adding to our quiet homey the atmosphere. The house is warm and cosy. And best of all my heart is at peace. I know I’ve done the best that I could all year long. I hope you all have a peaceful Christmas.

I guess that’s my report for today. I will take this opportunity to wish you all a super holiday season. I hope you all get to spend quality time with your nearest and dearest. Sarah and I will be spending the holiday making life better one quilting stitch at a time.

Happy Stitcher Girls 2018

Until next time,

Let’s all keep on stitching.

  1. Last year you listed all your would -be attainments. I followed suit, and thanks to your prodding we sent 9 hand made throws to charity. We have another six waiting to go, that’s when my sister and I finish the current ones, taking our total this time to eight. So thank you Lucie.Just another achievement of yours. I’m sure you have inspired lots more, too.
    Best wishes to you and a Sarah. Monica


    1. Monica I’m so pleased to hear from you. And I must congratulate you on your accomplishments. It can be difficult to stay on the production path. I have no doubt that your throws will be well received. Keep up the good work. I look forward to posting about my change if creative direction in the new year. I wish you and yours a fab holiday. Thanks for popping in today x

    Lucie and Sarah,
    Sincere good wishes for a very happy Christmas.
    Easy to see where Sarah gets her good looks.
    2019 will be a great year for you and Sarah.
    Looking forward to your new quilting adventure.
    You have the motivation to achieve this goal.
    When you have time take a look at the quilts of Alicia Merrett. (sp)
    and the wild crazy quilts of Freddy Moran.
    Explosion in a paint factory ,for Freddy Moran’s, is an understatement.


    1. Hi Sheila,

      I hope you’ve had an enjoyable holiday. Sarah and I had a lovely quiet Christmas. During the holidays I tend to lose track of what day it is !!!
      Thanks for the heads up regarding Alicia Merrett, she’s a new one to me. Freddy Moran is a familiar name but I’m not familiar with his work. I will look them both up. Inspiration comes from so many different sources. Roll on 2019 x


  3. Seasons greetings to both you & Sarah. Oh & a big hug to Maisie too. Lovely to see a blog post pop up on Christmas morning in my in-box, including a great photo of you all. I just compared it to the one we had taken in 2014 & the glasses & new hairstyle make you look a little different. Have an enjoyable quiet day, & look forward to hearing about plans for 2019. Huggles.

    1. Hi Allison, I’m planning on sketching and gathering supplies from my sewing room over the next week or so to get started on my new adventure on wonky crafting. A new challenge is just what I need to kick the new year off. I wish you and yours all the best for 2019 x
