Christmas is a comin'

Sorry, couldn't resist!
August has been a crazy busy month for me so far with the Festival of Quilts, (I really want to do a quilt post), classes beginning next week, a wedding to attend last weekend, two workshops including this Sunday coming at The Stitch Gathering etc etc.

There has also been an addition to the family but I'll leave that for the end of this post.

So last Sunday was Christmas in August. You might remember my class sample -
It's a large wrap around cushion, quilted all over and with applique shapes cut using Gordon, my Accuquilt Go. The ladies prepped their backgrounds prior to the workshop so that they could enjoy playing with Gordon, he does add a little extra to a workshop and I hope to develop a couple of new ones using new dies bought in the US on holiday.

Several ladies followed my lead and chose less Christmassy fabrics - don't they look good!!
Addition to the family? My son and his girlfriend have acquired a puppy - meet Wee Angus, the Welsh (??) Terrier. Adorable doesn't begin to describe him.....................
