A New Year

This is my first bit of stitching for 2011 I have as yet to finish the 12 ornaments from LHN Ornament of the month series, I am on ornament 8 so as I am still a member of the Sal 2011 blog, this is my first UFO for the year to be finished as I intend to collect this years ornament of the month, there is a preview of the first ornament on the LHN blog.This is what I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas she has a basket of Biscornu so as we had had alot of
snow I thought it was an ideal pattern it is from Faby Reilly called the Snowman.

Here is a panel from the Quilt I made for my mother I have now quilted it just need to bind the edges she is very pleased with it.
This was taken by my Husband before Christmas it is the River Nidd in Knaresborough it is frozen when we went down to look at it I could not believe the amount of footprints there where on the ice even the tracks of a bike.
