Christmas QAL - post 1

OK, it's finally here.  The first Christmas QAL of 2012, and Hazel is our hostess for today.

Hazel said that she thought we should start our day with some suitably festive food, drink, decorations, etc.  I chose a mug of hot chocolate with cream on, which I drank whilst looking out at a white, snowy world with the sun shining. I didn't think of taking a picture of it and now I've drunk it, so here is a pic of the empty mug instead!

This is a picture of the fabrics I am using for the Festive Mystery quilt.
From the top they are
background:  white tone-on-tone,
dark: dark turquoise
medium: peach
light: a sort of bluey-greeny-turquoisey

Now I'm off to start cutting, as soon as I've taken the washing out of the machine.  See you all later.


  1. Oh - those fabrics are pretty! I especially like that peach.

    I think that the washing will freeze on the line today - it's a very crisp morning here.

  2. I like your fabric choices, too, and a hot chocolate sounds good right now. We have a light coating of snow here as well. The weather is adding atmosphere.

  3. Looks like you are well on your way! I am still deciding on fabrics. Love your choices!

  4. I just got up as it is 8 am here and I can't wait to get going! I think I will start with getting my mystery quilt fabrics picked and cut, too!

  5. Hot chocolate, snow.....what more do you need to spend the day quilting!

  6. Love your fabric choices, great combination of colors. Snow, Hot Chocolate, Fabric, Sewing - makes for a perfect day.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day.
