Really? Only One Week To Go?

Posted on | December 16, 2011 | 11 Comments

That can’t really be true! Oh, well, I had better keep working on all the unfinished bits and pieces.

First a little excitement. A little while back I won one of the Ghastlies prizes being offered by Pauline of Quilt’N’Queen.  I chose the gorgeous Tea Cozy.

It looks wonderful and I love it to bits.


Love the faces on all the family members.

Wouldn’t you just love to sit down to a meal with them?

I consider myself very lucky to have received such beautiful sewing from Pauline. Thank you very much.

I may not have been busy posting but I have been busy sewing. I managed to finish the Christmas stockings in time to have them sent across to the other side of the world. I had word that they have been received today. Great news.

I also made a lot of owls to include with gifts I was wrapping. I made these ones with the machine, rather than hand made like the previous ones.

My Garden Maze quilt has returned from the LAQ and is now waiting for the binding to be done, hopefully over the next week.


And I am still making Christmas cards, although these ones were made as a stamping stack with a group of friends a few weeks back.

I hope you are all making good progress with your Christmas plans. Good luck!
