This is the quilt I made for my swap partner Tonje/Nemo for the SSCS... a mini version from Anni Downs 'A Christmas Story' book
I have been taking it pretty easy and doing some handstitching, still have plenty of leftovers in the fridge and its so nice not to have to worry too much about meals. The build up before Christmas with 3 kids is pretty tiring, and I always enjoy boxing day onwards and can now sew guilt free! Next post I hope to have some finished projects to show.
Bye for Now

I feel truly spoilt with what Ranette my SSCS partner made for me, as you can see it's truly gorgeous!!!
Also included was a notepad set, playing cards (with quilt designs) and a lovely pincushion
Thankyou so very much Ranette for making my Christmas so much more special and Chooky for all your organising and making it all happen!!!!

The little serviette holders I made last year, from Nancy Hoversens 'Santa's Coming' Book.
I won't get a chance to do a another post before Christmas, so I wanted to wish everyone in Blogland a safe and Merry Christmas!!!!

A quick look through some craft books last night had me itching to do some stitching! Hubby is usually given a work diary before the new year, and I usually have to buy mine and then make a fabric cover, but this year we have been given 4! Hubby will not be getting a fabric cover for his of course, so I am going to cover 3 and then choose a favourite to keep, and maybe give the others for gifts.
The little verse with the stitchery is 'Cherished memories are held in the heart forever'
I am finally feeling that I am getting on top of all the Christmas jobs...which is a good thing as its only less than a week away! Lol!
Enjoy your week

The kids have been busy at school, and it always seems that everything is crammed into the last few weeks...school camp, swimming
lessons which has made the kids tired and crabby. The last day of school is tomorrow(yay!), which they spend having a picnic at the beach, and has always been a tradition even when I was at primary school.
The Christmas stockings I made a few years back...one each for the kids.
The next couple of days I hope to make my Christmas pudding and cake...the christmas cake is made by melting the butter (same as pudding) which makes it nice and easy.
Enjoy your week
