Merry Chistmas and Xmas Swap Gift

I know it is a few days late but I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and I hope you all had a wonderful day with family and friends. This is a photo of our tree at 6.00am on christmas morning before the kids attacked it. We enjoyed a lovely quiet day at home with a hot christmas lunch with my mum and dad. We celebrated our big family christmas with my family yesterday when 13 people descended on our new property. We had the most faboulous time eating and drinking way too much, lots of laughs and happy times - just the way it should be. Today we are all exhausted and are spending the day in front of the TV watching the cricket. I am also planning to get into the sewing room and do some sorting and organising for the year ahead.

These are the lovely gifts that I received in our on-line stitching group xmas swap. The lovely Teresa was my swap partner and she made a sewing companion and writing set complete with paper and envelopes. Thank you Teresa I love them.

I made gifts for Sarah but unfortunately I forgot to take photos so if you hop over to her blog to see what I made.

Time Flies

It seems like only yesterday that my DS was starting school.

Now 7 years later he is attending is Yr6 formal - where did that time go. He seems so grown up now (it won't be long and he will be taller than me!!) and I am oh so proud of him.

A Little Bit of Shopping

I have been very naughty lately and have been buying up on some fabric and books.
I have fallen in love with this range of fabric "Spirit" by Lila Tuellar.

These two books are fabulous and I have picked out quilts to make from both with the fabrics I have purchased. I am going to make a quilt from Simplify with the Spirit jelly roll
and ....

I have purchased some Punctuation by American Jane to make this quilt from the Schnibbles book.

Some Fandango and Bella Basics. I am thinking of making this quilt.

Hope you all get to do some stitching this weekend.
Chat soon
