My name is Collette and I am a quilter from Scotland. I have been a patchworker and quilter for over a decade and love to share what I have been making here.

The 'C' word!

Christmas!  There I have said it!  I finished 3 festive items for my Etsy shop this week.  A table topper, coaster set and some bunting.

Check out the holly in the bunting photo.  This is at the top of my garden.  It doesn't ever get berries on it though?????

Today I am working on some mug rugs.  Love a mug rug.  Oh and the scarf is totally out and on every morning during the school run now.  A chill in the air!
Happy Friday all!


  1. Love your sewing, such soft colours !
    That must be a male holly, only the females have berries, you'd better plant a female alongside - they would be happy together !

  2. I love it! I have been making Christmas rose stars, although not sure what I will turn them in to
    I have a holly tree at the end of my garden, which does occasionally get berries: I think it's something to do with whether the tree is male or female????

  3. Christmas is coming early in your house. Me, I will be sewing at the last minute or for next year! I do like your coasters and mat (and bunting)! Di x
