The trees have turned white

The trees have turned white and not just because there is a tonne of snow on them. They are actually white. I know that sounds bonkers. I can't quite explain it, but it is as if someone had dipped them all in icing sugar. It is the most beautiful thing. I wish I could capture it on film for you to see but my attempts have failed miserably!

Anyway onto the sewing. I have started making Rose Star blocks. Here is my first one. It took quite a while to put together so this will not be a fast project but will be something I can work on on these cold dark nights.

Hope you are all staying warm.

November snow

December already and the snow arrived with a vengeance yesterday. The small people are overjoyed and spent a long time playing in it today. It also means there is a little bit of light today, sunshine even. It won't last long but boy is it good to see it!

November was a pretty busy month, a couple of cushions and lots of bee blocks. Linking to Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day

Happy December
