Oh ho ho it is December!

December is here and the year slithers to an end. I have much hope for December. My youngest starts her summer holidays on Tuesday; It is my husbands birthday and there is always the fun of Christmas to look forward to.
The name of December is of course confusing as the it says that it is the 10th month of the year. Well this is the 10th month of the Roman calendar, which I suppose is fitting as they were the ones that initiated the feast that we are all so happy to participate in. 
Progress has been made on the quilting of my Dear Jane. I managed to finish quilting 81 blocks. This makes a cute 9 by 9 block. It sounds great until you realise there are still 200 blocks to go. 
My husband and I also take time off work in December, so I am sure that I will be able to quilt! I must make sure that I have enough fun TV shows to watch whilst I do this. I really enjoy
watching silly history shows whilst quilting; It has brought to mind a question as to why there has never been a quilting tradition in South Africa. I come from a family that were frontiers people and yet the only artefacts that have been saved are lace and embroidery. The one thing may be that Africa is too darn hot to need quilts or maybe that ladies were too lazy to actually create some.

Hope everyone is ready to have a great December.
