And here what I made for Joyce. I also gave her a selection of cream on cream fat quarters. The pattern come from Cinderberry Stitches, here.

Last Saturday, my "monsters" participated to the inter-school Aquathlon:
- Juliette swam 200 m and ran 1.280 km,
- Victor swam 300 m for 1.920 km run,
- Alice did 400 m swim with 3.200 km run.
all did very well and I was so impressed by their performance
especially under the heat we had. I would I love to give you the final
results but the French School is unfashionably late in publishing them!

Here is the finished Christmas Quilt. In the end, I am quite please
with the result, although the machine quilting is not great. Will do
better next time.
Yesterday, I went fabric hunting with my
friends from the Quilt group. We went to People's Place. It is a great
place with plenty of choice at a reasonable price. I bought 2 pieces.
It is my starting point for MP's Bb's quilt. I am not quite sure what I
will be making yet. Should I wait until the little one arrives?
