the best of 2015

Back in town briefly for Xmas day with the family... wrapping up the last few prezzies, getting the trifle layers done, last minute prepping for the turkey, and just a little bit of catch up blog reading! I stumbled across a new-to-me site, Meadow Mist Designs, where Cheryl is hosting a linky party highlighting your "best" 5 posts from 2015. It can be anything from your favourite finishes, or posts with the most views, to your best tutorials or best discussions.

Best of 2015 Linky Party

I've had a blog for just over 3 years now and love all the sharing of knowledge and inspiration! An added bonus for me has been that my computer skills have improved, and so too have my photography efforts! I have chosen to highlight my "5 best quilting photos" from this past year of posts...

First up- this pic was taken on our back deck
 'Fonthill quilt', maker unknown, quilting by Annette, binding by me

Tidying my cottons... all the pinks, old & new!

'Rail Fence' quilt  - this pic was taken at my sister's house, the 70's wallpaper my inspiration!

a wall of quilting cotton colour at Annettes, my quilter

and one last photo-
one of my favourite 'makes' this year,  'vintage spin' now all quilted & finished 

Linking up with Cheryl  here for the' best of 2015'

  10. What a nice idea to pick your top 5! I always find it hard to take great pictures and knowing it makes such a difference in blogging ... you practiced a well needed skill :) I especially love the first picture. So vibrant! All the best for 2016.
